For the Doughnuts

For the Glaze

  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon; set aside.
  • In a small saucepan bring together the milk, white vinegar, vanilla, egg, and butter.
  • Cook over medium-heat, stirring constantly with a whisk until the butter melts, about one minute. Remove from heat.
  • Add the milk mixture into the flour mixture; mix until combined.
  • Using a large tablespoon, spoon the doughnut mixture into an ungreased doughnut pan.
  • Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and immediately invert the pan onto a cooling rack.
  • While the doughnuts are cooling, begin to work on the glaze.


  • Place all the glaze ingredients in a small saucepan and cook over medium-heat, whisking constantly just until combined and no lumps appear.
  • Set the saucepan over a bowl filled with hot water.
  • Dip the doughnuts into the glaze, one at a time, and set on a rack, glaze side up. Put something underneath the rack because some of that glaze will drip off.
  • Give it a few minutes before you dig in.
