In the spirit of taking on new challenges, I decided to show that you can easily replace the milk in your baking recipes with Almond Breeze. It's as easy as swapping out one for the other.
These donuts are cake-y and flavoured with amaretto, definitely a fun treat. If you'd prefer a plain baked doughnut recipe, try these baked sour cream baked doughnuts or baked pumpkin doughnuts flavoured with cardamom.
Baked amaretto doughnuts
For the doughnuts
- 83 mL (⅓ cups) Almond Breeze unsweetened almond milk
- 28 grams (2 tablespoon) unsalted butter
- 67 grams (⅓ cup) granulated sugar
- 15 mL (1 tablespoon) amaretto liqueur
- 1.25 mL (¼ teaspoon) pure vanilla extract
- 5 mL (1 teaspoon) vinegar
- 1 large egg(s)
- 125 grams (1 cup) bleached all-purpose flour
- 5 mL (1 teaspoon) baking powder
- 1.25 mL (¼ teaspoon) Diamond Crystal fine kosher salt
For the glaze
First prepare the doughnuts
- Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Prepare your doughnut pans by greasing them and then placing them on a baking sheet.
- Melt the butter with with almond milk over medium–high heat in a small saucepan.
- Pour this mixture over the granulated sugar in a medium bowl. Let cool until the mixture is just warm/almost room temperature, stirring every so often to help dissolve the sugar.
- Add the amaretto, vanilla, vinegar, and egg and mix well to combine.
- In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and whisk to combine.
- Transfer the doughnut batter to a piping bag and pipe into the prepared pans.
- Baked the doughnuts for about 10 to 12 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Prepare the glaze
- In a small bowl whisk together all the ingredients to form a thick, not too drippy glaze. Smooth it on the tops of the doughnuts with an offset spatula or twist/dip the tops of each in the glaze, finishing with a sprinkling of toasted almond.
- Best eaten the day they are made.
Almond Breeze sent me samples of their almond milk and financial compensation to develop recipes with their products this month. Thanks for supporting the sponsors that allow me to create new recipes for Kitchen Heals Soul. As always, please know that I wouldn’t mention the product if it wasn’t worth it. And I really have been using Almond Breeze since 2009.
