6 doughnuts


  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • Spice

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ cup butter

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • Stir-In

  • cup plain low-fat yogurt, light sour cream, or plain Greek yogurt

  • Dipper(s)

  • Topper(s) (optional)

Powdered Sugar Icing

  • 3 cup powdered sugar

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla or almond extract

  • 6 teaspoon milk

Chocolate Powdered Sugar Icing

  • 3 cup powdered sugar

  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 2 tablespoon milk

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla or almond extract

  • Milk (optional)


  1. Coat six indentations of a doughnut pan or nine 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with cooking spray; set aside. In a medium bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, Spice, salt, and baking soda. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs.

  2. In a small bowl combine egg, Stir-In, and yogurt. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture; stir just until combined (do not overmix).

  3. Spoon batter into a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch round tip. Pipe batter into the prepared doughnut pan indentations or muffin cups. Lightly coat a sheet of plastic wrap with cooking spray. Place plastic wrap, coated side down, over doughnut batter. Chill for 2 to 24 hours.

  4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove plastic wrap. Bake about 15 minutes or until doughnuts are light golden brown and spring back when lightly touched. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Carefully invert pan to remove doughnuts.

  5. As soon as doughnuts are cool enough to handle, dip or spread with Dipper(s) and, if desired, sprinkle with Topper(s). Serve warm.
