Ingredients
  

For the Doughnuts:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg room temperature preferred
  • 2 Tbsp melted & cooled butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp sprinkles

For the Glaze:

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3-6 Tbsp heavy cream
  • Pink food coloring
  • Sprinkles for topping

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 12-cavity donut pan with non-stick baking spray.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, butter, and vanilla extract until well-combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, folding in carefully so as not to over-mix. Fold in sprinkles.
  • Pour the batter into a large ziploc bag and snip off the corner of the bag for a makeshift piping bag.
  • Pipe the batter into the donut pans, filling each mold 2/3 full.
  • Bake on 350F for 10 minutes.
  • Allow donuts to cool for 5-10 minutes in their pan before carefully removing and allowing to cool completely on cooling rack. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
  • FOR THE GLAZE, whisk together your sugar, vanilla, and 3 Tbsp of heavy cream until well-combined. Add additional heavy cream if needed, stirring in 1 Tbsp at a time.
  • Add food coloring, if using.
  • Dunk the bottoms of each donut in the glaze and return to cooling rack (bottom side up, now). Sprinkle immediately with sprinkles.
  • Allow glaze to set (about 30 minutes) before serving (or, if you're like me, dig right in, just keep some napkins handy!)
