    Default Doughnuts not fried?

    You betcha! I made a double batch of the following King Arthur Flour
    recipe over the weekend, and just as their "say" goes, as well as what
    on-site commentors said, these muffins bake to an excellent replica of
    deep fried cake doughnuts. I used quite a lot of Penzeys' extra fancy
    Vietnamese Cinnamon to make my own topping, and a minimum of 1+1/4
    tsp. fresh ground nutmeg in the batter.

    With my picky-eater next door neighbor boy in mind, I made these as
    soon as I read the recipe. I doubled the batch to take several into
    work today for my Marines, and right away each "tester" commented
    along the line of, "Wow! These are just like doughnuts!" Enjoy if
    you care to, Picky

    Doughnut Muffins - Yield: 12 muffins - July 2010, KAF

    Batter: 1/4 cup butter 1/4 cup vegetable oil
    1/2 cup granulated sugar 1/3 cup brown sugar
    2 large eggs 1+1/2 tsp. baking powder
    1/4 tsp. baking soda 1 to 1-1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
    3/4 tsp. salt 1 tsp. vanilla extract
    2+2/3 cups ap-flour 1 cup milk
    Topping: 3 Tbsp. each, melted butter and Cinnamon-Sugar Plus or
    cinnamon sugar

    Preheat oven to 425F. Lightly grease a standard muffin tin.
    Cream together the butter, vegetable oil, and sugars till smooth.
    Add the eggs, beating to combine. Stir in the baking powder,
    baking soda, nutmeg, salt, and vanilla.

    Stir the flour into the butter mixture alternately with the milk,
    beginning and ending with the flour and making sure everything is
    thoroughly combined.

    Spoon the batter evenly into the prepared pan, filling the cups
    nearly full. Bake the muffins for 15 to 17 minutes, or until they're
    a pale golden brown and a cake tester inserted into the middle of one
    of the center muffins comes out clean.

    Remove them from the oven, and let them cool for a couple of minutes,
    or until you can handle them. While they're cooling, micro-melt the
    butter for the topping.

    Use a pastry brush to paint the top of each muffin with the butter,
    then sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar. (I baked them paperless,
    tipped each one out of the tin to sprinkle the topping over well, then
    placed each one into a foil cupcake paper to store.) Or simply dip
    the tops of muffins into the melted butter, then roll in the cinnamon-
    sugar. Serve warm, or cool on a rack and wrap airtight. Store for a
    day or so at room temperature.

    If it's not fried, it's not as donut.

    Fine. I did not call them merely doughnuts, nor is the recipe named
    that. You can call them dough-nut muffins then.

    Boy, those would sure be hard to resist. Thanks for the recipe, I've saved
    it in case I ever need to bring that kind of thing in for other people to
    eat. :-)

    Thanks for the recipe, I may make these for the garbage men Friday. We
    usually give them beverages but we did not buy any at the store yesterday.

    Bob I can attest to the quality of Jeanine's recipe. My wife baked a
    batch of these things earlier on this evening (Bangkok eastern summer
    time) and I can basically sum up the taste in 1 word - simply
    stunning!

    Kind Regards,

    IIRC, don't the Danish do abveskivers (sp) by baking in a special pan?

    Even the non-Danish do.

    I made aebelskivers over the weekend. The fruit filling was made by
    combining blackberries, peaches and sugar with a bit of water and a
    sprinkle of cornstarch. I used the cooked fruit for the aebelskivers,
    then reduced the syrup to pour over them on the plates.

    Oh, boy, they were good, BUT they are a lot of work in that one is
    dealing with batter, fruit, more batter, then turning the little
    beauties.

    I think it is better and so very much easier to make a Dutch Baby.
    Mix, pour into a heated pan, then 20 minutes later remove a
    spectacularly poofed dish from the oven. Serve with cooked fruit,
    syrup or lemon juice and powdered sugar. Just as tasty.

    But I have to use that aebelskiver pan a few times a year to justify
    its existence.

    Sounds great! I've always been intriuged by those pans.

    Dutch Babies are awesome and much less fuss, I agree. I like to have
    them simply with butter, some squeezes of lemon and some powdered
    sugar - much easier than making a filling!

    I thought cake doughnuts were real doughnuts. Not fried, but baked.

    One of the worst burns I ever got was from frying doughnuts at work.
    I was getting ready to lower the screen into the the doughnut fryer
    and it slipped just as I was getting ready to lower the cradle into
    the fryer. Hot oil splattered all over my arms. I had one blister
    that was the size of a silver dollar. It took months for the scar to
    fade away.

    Yes:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doughnuts

    There are also baked doughnuts described in the cite.

    But fried doughnuts are divided into "raised" (yeast) and "cake" (no
    yeast).

    That's not my understanding, Nancy. I believe it has to do with the
    leavening (yeast vs. baking powder) and the texture of the final product
    (sweet bread vs. a cake-type crumb).
