This recipe makes 6 doughnuts. You can use the low carb options or regular. And the doughnuts recipe has options for flavoring and color. There is also a doughnut glaze recipe you can try.
1/3 cup Sugar substitute or sugar. (A good sugar substitute is ZSweet.)
1 tsp vanilla extract or orange extract (Use the flavor of your choice.)
1 cup Carbquick or Bisquick or flour. (Carbquick has 90% less carbs than Bisquick or flour.)
1 tsp. baking powder
2 Tbs. oil
1 large egg
1/4 cup Unsweetened vanilla almond milk or regular cow’s milk. (Unsweetened vanilla almond milk has just 1 carb per serving and about the same amount of fiber.)
1/4 tsp salt
Pam cooking spray
(optional) 2 drops yellow food color or 1 drop yellow and 1 drop red food color for orange
Doughnuts Glaze Ingredients:
1/4 cup Splenda Brown Sugar or 1/2 cup regular Brown Sugar. (Splenda Brown Sugar has less carbs and only needs half as much in recipes.)
1 tablespoon hot water
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1) You’ll need a doughnut pan that can fit under the NuWave Oven’s lid. I used this Wilton 6 doughnut pan.
2) Spray a doughnut pan with Pam spray.
3) Hand mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
4) Add in, mixing with a blender as you go. In this order: almond milk/milk, oil, vanilla/orange extract, egg and food color if desired.
5) Ensure the ingredients are all mixed, but don’t over mix till too thick and dry. Try 2 minutes at low speed and then 30 seconds at medium speed.
6) Spoon the batter into the 6 doughnut cups evenly. Make sure the center posts have no batter on them. Spread the batter evenly in the cups and smooth it out, so there are no large lumps.
7) Place the doughnut pan on the bottom serving tray. You may need to balance the ends of the doughnut pan on the upper sides of the bottom serving tray. With the doughnut pan I used, the placement had to be “just right” to fit and put the lid on. And the ends of the doughnut pan did have to be balanced on the upper sides of the bottom serving tray. The lid closed fully though, so use a doughnut pan that allows you to close the lid fully. (You should test the doughnut pan placement prior to cooking, to be sure you know how to place it ahead of time.)
8) Cook at high power for 8 minutes. Till the doughnuts are golden brown.
9) Check that the doughnuts spring back when lightly touched. And also test that a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.
10) Allow to cool.
11) Blend the Doughnut Glaze ingredients in a small bowl.
12) Dip the tops of doughnuts in the glaze, or spoon it onto the doughnuts. Or use the glaze/topping of your choice.
Note: For Chocolate Butter Cream Frosting. Melt 1/4 cup of butter and 1/4 cup of chocolate chips together in a pan and stir. Dip the doughnut tops in the frosting. For lower carbs, use very dark chocolate chips.
