Baked Vanilla Doughnuts with White Chocolate Ganache Glaze

I just love my new donut pan!  If you haven't tried baked donuts, they are so easy, light and actually fun even if you hate baking!  I made the chocolate one's first this time these are a cinnamon vanilla flavor. (I put rum in the ganache) Here's a great recipe that actually came with the pan ....

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon rice vinegar or you can use white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 egg
4 tablespoons butter, softened

For the Glaze:
1/4 cup butter
3 ounces white chocolate
1 3/4 cup powdered sugar
4-5 tablespoons rum or water

 Colored Sprinkles
Mixture of Cinnamon & Sugar

Melt the butter in a microwave proof large bowl. Add the vinegar, milk, vanilla and stir, I love to watch that thicken as it curdles. Whisk in egg. Then add all the dry ingredients till well blended. Lightly spray donut pans.

Taking a sturdy zip lock bag fill it with the batter, snip a little piece of the end off and pipe the donuts into the pans to fill about 2/3 full each. Bake for 8 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched. Cool on parchment paper.

For Glaze:  In a microwave safe bowl, add white chocolate and butter till melted. Mix in sugar and water, stir mixing till blended. Dip donuts in ganache and sprinkle with either colored sprinkles or cinnamon and sugar. Makes 12.
