Baked vanilla bean doughnut recipe


One of my favorite desserts are doughnuts butttttt they are not really good for your health because they are usually fried. Here is a great recipe for baked doughnuts which makes me less guilty after eating one.
They have the texture of a light cake with a burst of vanilla bean flavor.
