This Celebrated Life
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
2 Large Organic Valley Eggs
1/2 cup Organic Valley Butter, melted
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup champagne (room temperature)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup champagne (for glaze)
2 cups powdered sugar (for glaze)
1/4 tsp salt (for glaze)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and grease two doughnut pans. Set aside.
Melt 1/2 cup butter, and allow to cool slightly. Add 3/4 cup room temperature champagne, 2 large eggs, 1 cup sugar and 1 tsp vanilla to the melted butter. Whisk to combine. Add 3/4 tsp salt and 2 tsp baking powder and give a quick stir, and then add 2 cups flour. Stir with a spatula until no flour streaks show in the batter.
Transfer the batter to a large gallon-size ziplock bag, and cut a small hole in the corner. Pipe the batter into each well of the greased doughnut pan, filling to about 1/4 inch from the top of the mold. Bake 14-16 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with moist crumbs. Allow to cool in the pans for 5 minutes, and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. In the meantime, prepare the glaze.
For the glaze, combine 1/4 cup champagne, 2 cups powdered sugar and 1/4 tsp salt in a shallow bowl, whisking to combine. Generously dip each cooled doughnut into the glaze, and then return to the cooling rack for the glaze to set.
