Baked chai doughnuts

Baked chai doughnuts

Yields 6 doughnuts

For the doughnuts
1 c flour
½ c DONA Masala Chai
⅓ brown sugar
1 t baking powder
½ salt
3 T melted butter
1 egg

For the coating
3 T melted butter
½ sugar 
2 T cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a donut pan and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, combine DONA Masala Chai, egg and melted butter. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk until just combined. Pour the batter into a large Ziploc bag and then snip a triangle off of one corner. Pipe the batter into the greased donut pan, filling each mold until almost full. Bake the donuts for about 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Turn out onto a cooling rack and let cool completely.

Meanwhile, make topping. Place melted butter in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together cinnamon and sugar. One cooled, quickly dip each doughnut in butter mixture and lightly coat in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Best served warm.
