  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 2¼ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, split in half and seeds scraped out
  • ½ cup milk
  • Glaze
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • Pinch of salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat donut pan generously with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and 1/2 vanilla bean scraped, mix well.

  4. Fill donut tins dividing batter equally between them. Bake 15-20 minutes.
  5. In a medium bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, salt, 1 tablespoon milk, and vanilla until smooth. If it’s too thick for a glaze, add the extra teaspoon of milk.
