Donuts. Who doesn't love donuts? I LOVE donuts. Good donuts though. I mean c'mon they are sooooo good! Have you ever tried your hand at homemade donuts? You can now, as I have a recipe to share with you that not only makes one heck-of-a donut but they are also baked. Which means more you can eat. Baked = healthier, right? Right! Pair it up with a nice mug of coffee and oh my yum.

These happen to be french vanilla flavored donuts. That also happens to be a french vanilla glaze on top of them as well. And yes, that happens to be blue sugar sprinkled on top because well . . . I thought it looked pretty. Sound good? Oh and did I mention they are mini too, so I am pretty sure that means you could eat even more! ;)

Know what else I LOVE? Target. I was there the other day, needed some coffee creamer, and I spotted these bottles and I decided to take a look. The design drew me in as it's very modern and well, I AM a designer so these things do catch my eye. Come to find out that design star David Bromstad has partnered with Coffee-mate and Target, with limited edition bottle designs inspired by coffee and Coffee-mate. David Bromstad's designed bottles (French Vanilla and Hazelnut) will be available exclusively at Target stores nationwide.

As I placed them in my cart, I had a thought. I was going to make some flavored donuts with them. AND make them to match the bottles.

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray donut pan with non-stick cooking spray
  2. In medium bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add in coffee creamer, eggs, vanilla extract (for vanilla donuts) and butter - beat until combined.
  3. Place batter into piping bag and fill doughnut pans, fill about ½ the way.
  4. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until top springs back when touched. (truth: I baked these in my oven for ONLY 4 minutes - just check them & plan on low end depending on your oven)
  5. Let donuts cool at least 5 minutes before glazing.
  6. To make glaze- In small bowl, whisk together creamer and powdered sugar. Add vanilla extract (for vanilla donuts) and whisk until smooth. TIP: Mix in more creamer if glaze is too thick, if it gets too watery add additional powdered sugar. Use immediately.
  7. Dip donuts in glaze and place on a wired rack. Let glaze dry.
  8. For additional 'color' glaze, just make an extra batch of glaze but add in food color to achieve the color you wish & drizzle over glazed donuts!
  9. ENJOY the delicious-ness!
