Project Instructions

  • 1
    Make donuts. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray pan with nonstick cooking spray. In large mixing bowl, sift together 2 cups cake flour, 3/4 cup granulated sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1 teaspoon salt. Add 3/4 cup buttermilk, 2 lightly beaten eggs and 2 tablespoons melted butter until just combined. Fill each donut cavity until it is about 2/3 full. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until top of the donuts springs back in pan. Let cool for 4 to 5 minutes in pan before removing. Note: project time does not include this baking and cooling time.

    Prepare & decorate with chocolate glaze. Mix 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips, 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon corn syrup. Microwave on 50% power until completely melted. Stir in 1 teaspoon hot water until glaze is thick and smooth. (Add another teaspoon water if glaze is too thick.) Place donuts on cooling grid over parchment-covered surface. Immediately pour glaze on donuts. Immediately sprinkle with nonpareils or snowflake mix. Position holly icing decoration.
