Baked Vanilla Doughnuts

2 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
3/4 c. buttermilk (I add lemon juice to regular milk sometimes)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp melted butter

1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 - 4 tsp Half-n-Half or milk

1. Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the liquid ingredients.

3. Combine the two sets of ingredients and blend well.

4. Fill each cavity in a doughnut pan about 2/3 full. (I use a zip lock bag with the corner snipped off to do this.  Sort of like piping cake icing -- much neater.)

5. Bake doughnuts at 325ยบ for about 10 minutes (depending on your oven.)

6. While doughnuts are cooling, prepare glaze:  Mix together the powered sugar, vanilla and Half-n-Half -- adding the Half-n-Half one tsp at a time until the mixture reaches a thick drizzling consistency.  Drizzle glaze over cooled doughnuts OR... make a double batch of glaze (slightly more runny) and the dunk the entire doughnut in.  YUM! (Makes about 15 doughnuts.)
