French Culler Donuts

Good morning breakfast club! It’s been a while… Sometimes I get the chance to bake some goodies for breakfast when my Rhys plays himself into a nap. This morning was one of those mornings!

I am a freak for breakfast foods, any kind. I can eat breakfast for brunch, lunch, dinner, dessert, and still wake up the next morning… wanting breakfast! My sweet tooth was bugging me today and I knew I wanted to bake something yummy-licious. I found this recipe for Oven Baked French Culler Donuts with a simple sugary glaze and decided to give it a try.

Oven Baked French Culler Donuts


Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 6 tbs butter (sliced)
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbs milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. In a saucepan bring water, butter, sugar & salt to a boil.
  3. Lower heat, add in flour. Mix well.
  4. Continue to cook, stirring frequently on medium- low heat for 4-6 minutes to steam as much water out as possible trying not to burn.
  5. Once a thin layer of film forms in the bottom of pan, turn off heat.
  6. Transfer dough to a bowl. Using an electric mixer beat dough for 1 minute to cool down.
  7. Beat in one egg at a time making sure to scrape sides and mix well.
  8. Transfer dough to a piping bag (ziplock works just as well)
  9. Squeeze dough in circular shapes onto greased or lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
  10. Bake for 5 minutes at 450 then reduce heat to 350 and continue baking for 15 minutes.
  11. Turn off oven. Leave donuts to cool with oven door slightly open.
  12. Remove from oven and let cool.
  13. Mix powdered sugar, vanilla & milk to make a thin glaze.
  14. Once donuts have cooled, dip the top into glaze and let sit until glaze is set.
  15. Best eaten same day.

I hope y’all enjoy this delicious donut recipe to change up your daily breakfast routine. I munched on a few of these sitting in my hammock swing by the big windows in my living room, sipping on a cup of chai tea.

Bon Appétite!
