Homemade Sugar Donuts Recipe

When you make your own donuts at home you know exactly what is going into them. There are no fillers and extra junk that donuts really don’t need. And let’s face it, as delicious as those exotic donuts are, do we really know what’s in them?

This recipe is so simple and requires almost nothing that you don’t already have around the house. You will need a donut pan!  Make the $10 investment and buy one because it’s worth it!

These homemade donuts are so delicious and extra soft! They are made with buttermilk so you know they are going to be moist and soft. These donuts are not heavy at all but instead have a light, airy texture to them, more like a raised donut.

Buttermilk Substitute With Vinegar

Not everyone keeps buttermilk around the house, but it is easy to substitute if you cannot make a run to the store. I know how it is when you want your donuts NOW! So instead, you can use 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to measure 1 cup. Stir it and let stand for 5 minutes. Then you’re good to go!

Buttermilk Substitute With Yogurt

Another option is using 1 cup of plain yogurt or 1-3/4 teaspoons cream of tartar plus 1 cup milk. It’s much more common to have regular milk and vinegar or juice in you house than buttermilk, unless you are someone who bakes all the time.

It really is that quick! You’ll be eating your own delicious donuts in no time. Eat them while they’re still warm, yummmm.

Enjoy!
