I am not a big sweet tooth , so I always looking for a savory version of something sweet , have you ever had savory donut ?? No it’s not bagel though it looks likes , it’s savory creme cheese and herbed baked donut try it you will be surprised
Baked cheese and herbed donut
1.5 tbsp butter, melted
1.5 tbsp cream cheese, melted
3/4 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp fresh rosemary
1 tbsp seasoning blend ( whatever you have at home )
1 tsp salt, or to taste
black pepper, to taste or red pepper flake
You can also add garlic powder, onion powder, curry powder , paprika, oregano,
1/4 c shredded cheese (I used Mexican cheese mix )
6 tbsp+ buttermilk
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease the donut pan
In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt/soften 1.5 tbsp butter and 1.5 tbsp cream cheese. No more than about 15 seconds.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, spices and seasonings, egg, cheese, and add the melted butter & cream cheese mixture to it all. Stir by hand to combine.
Then, slowly add the buttermilk. You may need as little as 1/4 c or more like 1/2 c, or even a splash more. You are looking for a fairly thick batter. Thicker than cake or brownie batter, more like cookie dough consistency.
Pour the batter into a 6-donut pan. Mine the actually full 5 🙄
Bake 11 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until doughnuts spring back when touched or until dough is set.
Allow to cool slightly before removing from pan, about 5 minutes.
