International Delight Doughnuts

Doughnuts and coffee go perfectly hand-in-hand. Personally, my coffee tends to have a healthy proportion of some flavored creamer. I generally have a stash of International Delight on hand, so this worked out perfectly for making some homemade doughnuts...because this recipe actually uses coffee creamer as one of the ingredients! I had all of the ingredients on hand, so this made for a perfect weekend breakfast. 

Servings: 32
Doughnut Ingredients:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup International Delight Creamer
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat milk
  • 1/4 cup butter (melted)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Doughnut Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup International Delight Creamer
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tbs cinnamon
1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Use a little melted butter or baking spray to coat a mini doughnut baking pan.
2. In a large mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
 3. In a smaller bowl beat the eggs, add the milk, creamer, and melted butter. Whisk together and pour into the well of the dry ingredients. Combine with a wooden spoon.
4. Snip the end of a piping bag and fill about to about 2/3 with the doughnut mix. Pipe the mix into the doughnut pan.
5. Bake for approximately 12 minutes.
6. While the doughnuts are baking, prepare the icing. In a small bowl combine the white sugar and cinnamon, which makes cinnamon sugar.  Set aside. [We actually had a Cinnamon Sugar Grinder from Trader Joe's, so we used this.]
7. In a small saucepan on the stove melt the butter with the brown sugar, stirring continuously until completely blended and melted. Add the creamer and bring to a boil. Remove from the stove and whisk in the powdered sugar. Set aside to cool. As it cools, it thickens more and more. You may have to stir it occasionally as you notice that a hard film forms on the surface, especially if you are baking several batches of doughnuts.
8. Once cooled, dip the top of each doughnut into the glaze and turn onto a wire rack. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
These little doughnuts were so cute, and they're completely customizable based on whatever coffee creamer you have on hand. I used the Cinnabon flavor, but there are tons of possibilities!
