Day 213: Ube Doughnuts

I've been making a lot of doughnuts this pass month. I'm quite new to doughnuts as I've always got the store bought ones.

I absolutely love making doughnuts, especially the baked kind because it's more kid-friendly. These ube doughnuts are no exception!

Ube is purple yam that's can naturally color your dishes purple! I use ube extract and it only requires a few drops to get this beautiful purple hue.

I made these doughnuts in my mini doughnut pan, as that was what I had on hand. If you use a normal doughnut pan you'll probably get 6-8 large doughnuts.

These are also baked doughnuts! Baked doughnuts vs fried doughnuts taste very different, but equally delicious. A baked doughnut is a little bit more cakey and not as crisp but is a little bit more healthier compared to frying.

A really popular question: is it doughnuts or donuts? From what I've read it seems that "donuts" are "Americanized" and though both work, "doughnuts" is the more traditional way of writing this dessert! This is a quick doughnut recipe and once you get your ube extract go ahead and make a batch! I've already inhaled three! :)
