Doughnut Cupcakes!

Ingredients: (makes 16- 18 cupcakes)

Cupcakes:

  • 1/2 c. butter, softened
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar (packed)
  • 2 t. vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/3 c. flour
  • 2 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 c. milk

Cream filling:

  • 1 stick (4 oz) butter
  • 3/4 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 t. vanilla

Chocolate glaze:

  • 1 c. dark chocolate chips
  • 6 T. butter

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, both sugars and vanilla.  Beat on medium until combined.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating in between.
  • In a medium bowl combine flour, powder, soda and salt and blend.
  • Add flour mixture and milk, alternating between the two and beating well in between.
  • When batter is complete, scoop about 1 c. of batter into a large zip-top bag.
  • Clip corner and pipe into a Wilton Mini Doughnut Pan– fill each doughnut opening a little less than 1/2 full.
  • Bake mini doughnuts for about 5-6 minutes and cool on a rack.
  • Decorate them as desired (cinnamon, powdered sugar…I used a simple powdered sugar/milk glaze with food coloring and sprinkles)
  • Scoop remaining batter into cupcake liners in a cupcake tin, filling them about 2/3 full.
  • Bake at 350F degrees for about 18-20 minutes (test them when they come out, the centers took a little time to bake all through)
  • Cool cupcakes and core them (I use a Cupcake Plunger so that I have nice little circles to set back on top of the filling when I’m done.)
  • Make filling:  Place butter, powdered sugar and vanilla in a medium mixing bowl and beat on high until light and fluffy.
  • Place filling in a zip top bag and pipe evenly into each cupcake.  Place the cut-out top of the cupcake back on.
  • Make glaze by melting the chocolate chips and butter together in the microwave in 30 second increments stirring until smooth and shiny.
  • Cool just a little (so its easy to handle) and spoon or pipe onto top of each cupcake.
  • Before the glaze hardens, place a mini doughnut on top for decoration…so much fun!!!!!
  • Enjoy!

Creme-filled Doughnut Cupcakes!

My thoughts:  These cupcakes are a little work with the filling and the topping (and notice, dear fans, that I did NOT use a cake mix for these!!)  The extra effort really pays off in how good these cupcakes are.  Oh my.  Like doughnuts in cupcake form…perfect!  Enjoy!!!  ~r
