I bet you thought you’d never see me again, didn’t you?
Well as promised I have returned after a lengthy break. I so needed the time off and am rejuvenated and excited to get back to it! I will say I did miss blogging while I was gone. I missed creating new recipes and having all this great inspiration on my Instagram. I used some of the time to refresh and reinvent Go Eat and Repeat a little bit. Namely, a new web design. This one is cleaner, leaner, and more user friendly. Plus it is more colorful! I also have been working more on my photography. I purchased a food photography book and have been learning so much already! AND I made a new board to photograph my pictures on! Nothing like a new facelift and a fun new shooting surface.
And in the world of Shelby over the last two months, I got married and went on my honeymoon! I shared a little bit on my Instagram over the last few weeks, but I definitely plan on having a special post just dedicated to the wedding! I can’t wait to tell you about it! I’ve already been married for over a month!
But while I leave you on the edge of your seat waiting for wedding photos, let’s feast on some donuts.
I was brainstorming what I wanted my first recipe back to be and I settled on this. Something baked, something sweet, something delicious. Pretty much the three pillars of baked goods. And, in an ironic twist, did you know that today is National Donut Day? What are the odds that the first day I decide to start posting again I happen to post donuts on National Donut Day. Strange, huh? I guess the food blogger nature is just within me 😉
Besides the irony, these donuts are great because they are BAKED! I never go near a deep fryer after I got pretty burned using one. That’s why it is great that they sell donut pans at stores like Target at a great price! While I usually avoid recipes where you need special kitchen equipment, donut pans go for under $10. It is definitely an easy purchase!
The next thing is that these donuts are s’mores flavored. Summer=S’mores and National Donut Day= Baked Donuts. Now you follow me! Let’s just combine them all into one delicious mass of deliciousness!
Try them out to celebrate National Donut Day or the summer in general!
- Cooking spray
- 2 eggs
- ⅔ cup lightly packed brown sugar
- ½ cup milk
- ½ cup plain Greek yogurt (the size of one 5.3oz container)
- 4 tbs unsalted butter
- 1 tbs vanilla extract
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp nutmeg
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- ¼ cup water
- 3 tbs unsalted butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- 1½ cups powdered sugar
- 2 cups mini marshmallows
- 4 graham cracker sheets, crumbled
- ¼ cup mini chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a donut pan with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, brown sugar, milk, Greek yogurt, butter, and vanilla extract. Add in baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and baking soda and whisk to combine. With a spoon, gradually add in flour and mix just until all ingredients are incorporated.
- Pour batter into a gallon size zip top bag. Cut off one corner of bag and begin piping dough into greased donut pan, filling each mold about ¾ full. Place the donuts in the oven and allow to bake 10 minutes, or until the edges are becoming golden brown.
- Remove the donuts from the pan and place them on a wire rack to cool. (TIP: Put a piece of parchment paper under the rack, this will be useful later on!) Grease the donut pan again, and continue to bake the next batch.
- While the donuts are baking, prepare the glaze. In a small to medium sized pot on medium low heat, whisk together the water, butter, vanilla, salt, and powdered sugar until the butter has melted and the mixture is incorporated. Add in marshmallows and continue whisking until marshmallows are fully melted. Remove the pan from heat and allow to cool 5-10 minutes (it's better for the donuts if the icing isn't super hot when it is poured on).
- Once the donuts and icing are cool, dip the top of the donuts one by one into the icing. Place dipped donuts on the wire rack. Sprinkle donuts with graham cracker crumbs and mini chocolate chips. Serve immediately.
