Poppy Seed Doughnuts
From EatingWell: September/October 1996
Sour cream and buttermilk add tang to these poppy seed doughnuts.
- 2 tablespoons plus 1 1/4 cups sugar, divided
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons poppy seeds, toasted (see Tip)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup nonfat sour cream, or nonfat plain yogurt
- 1/3 cup buttermilk
- 3 tablespoons canola oil
- 2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 400°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.)
- 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.)
