Watermelon Doughnuts

Ingredients:

2 cups Cake Flour
3/4 cup Sugar
2 teaspoon Baking Powder
3/4 cup Buttermilk
2 bottles of Lor Ann Oils, Watermelon Flavor
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons Butter, melted
1/4 cup Mini Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
2 drops of Soft Pink Americolor Food Color
2 drops of Super Red Americolor Food Color

Glaze:

2 cups Confectioner's Sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
3-4 tablespoons hot Water

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Mix together the flour, sugar and baking powder in a large bowl.

3.  Add the buttermilk, watermelon flavoring, eggs and butter. Mix together. Add 2 drops of soft pink coloring.

4.
Mix the color into the batter. Add 2 drops of Super Red coloring. Mix coloring into batter.

5.
Add mini chips to batter. Mix in with a spoon.

6.
Spray the doughnut pan with pan spray. Fill with batter, halfway up the pan. Bake for 7-9 minutes.

7.
Remove from pan and cool completely.

8. Sift the powdered sugar. This is the most important step in making the glaze. If the sugar is not sifted the glaze will end up lumpy.

9.  Add vanilla. I used clear vanilla flavoring so the glaze will not be tinted by the vanilla color. Add water a little at a time. Make sure it is hot, and whisk after adding each tablespoon.

10. Place each doughnut, top side down, on the glaze. Swish around slightly until the top is covered.

11. Place dipped doughnuts on a cooling rack until glaze dries.

12. Enjoy!
