Servings: 8 small donuts

Ingredients 

Champagne Donuts

  • 1 cup+ 1 Tbsp pastry flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup champagne room temperature
  • 3 Tablespoon unsweetened apple sauce
  • ¼ cup organic sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 2 Tablespoon oil

Champagne Glaze

  • 1 cup organic powdered sugar
  • 3-4 teaspoon champagne
  • sparkle sprinkles *optional but highly recommended

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, sift together the pastry flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Whisk together and set aside for later.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the champagne, applesauce, sugar, oil, and vanilla bean paste/extract.
  • Next, add the bowl of dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients and mix together until a thick batter is formed.
  • Spray the donut pan with a cooking spray and then fill with each donut with batter until ¾ full, making sure not to cover the center hole with any batter.
  • Bake for 11-13 minutes until the donuts are beginning to brown and are cooked through.
  • Remove from the oven and let rest in the pan for about 5 minutes. Then, flip the donut pan upside down onto a cooling rack and let the donuts cool completely before dipping into glaze.
  • Once the donuts have cooled, make the glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar with the 4 tsp champagne in a small bowl.
  • Dunk each donut into the glaze and then place back onto the cooling rack for 5-10 minutes until the glaze sets and solidifies. As an optional topping, add on some sparkly sprinkles before the glaze has set. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Donuts are best enjoyed the day of. However, you can store them in a closed container in the fridge for 3-5 days or in the freezer up to 1 month.
  • I used the Wilton Donut Pan to bake these donuts.
  • To sub with 1 cup+ 1 Tbsp pastry flour with all-purpose flour use ¾ cup+ 3 Tbsp all purpose flour+ 1 Tbsp cornstarch for similar results
