Poppy Seed Doughnuts
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Thoroughly coat the molds of 2 mini-Bundt pans with cooking spray or oil. Sprinkle molds evenly with 2 tablespoons sugar, shaking out excess. (If you only have one pan, bake the recipe in 2 batches.)Advertisement
Whisk flour, poppy seeds, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl to blend. Whisk egg in a large mixing bowl until frothy. Add the remaining 1 1/4 cups sugar, sour cream (or yogurt), buttermilk, oil, lemon zest and vanilla; mix well. Add the dry ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula just until moistened.
Spoon about 2 tablespoons of batter into each prepared mold, smoothing the surfaces with a small spoon. Bake until the tops spring back when touched lightly, 10 to 12 minutes. Loosen edges and turn the doughnuts out onto a wire rack to cool. (If baking in 2 batches, cool the pan, clean it, then recoat it with cooking spray or oil and sugar.)
Equipment: 2 mini-Bundt pans
Tip: To toast poppy seeds: Place in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
