Creamsicle Doughnuts / #TasteCreations

This month we are all about Doughnuts at #TasteCreations, so I made some Creamsicle Doughnuts I would love to share with you! Would you do just about anything for a doughnut? I think a lot of people would! I lived in Las Vegas when the first Krispy Kreme opened in the city. Everyone was excited! The television news talked about it, it was in all the papers, and the lines were out the door everyday for at least a week. It seemed everyone had a story about waiting in line for the delectable doughnut! It was craziness, and everyone was talking doughnuts! Fun and a little nutty at the same time!
Well, these doughnuts are very tasty and easy to make, but I'm not sure they will get that much press! But, then again, you won't have to wait in line to get them! Even though they are worth it!
Creamsicle Doughnuts

(makes 15-17 doughnuts)
(printable recipe at end of blog)
 2 cups Cake Flour
3/4 cup Sugar
2 teaspoon Baking Powder
3/4 cup Buttermilk
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoon Butter, melted
1 teaspoon Orange Extract
2 teaspoon Orange Zest
1/8 cup fresh squeezed Orange Juice from zested Orange
Orange Sprinkles

Glaze 
2 cups Powdered Sugar 
4-5 tablespoon Light Whipping Cream

Preheat oven to 350° F

Place the cake flour, sugar and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Add the buttermilk, eggs, and butter. Mix together. Add the extract, zest and juice. Mix together.
Grease a doughnut pan.Fill each doughnut cavity with batter, about 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 6 1/2 -7 minutes. Remove from oven. Take a toothpick around the edges of the pan to loosen the doughnut a little. Let cool for 2 minutes, then remove from pan and cool.
Place all doughnut on a baking sheet, or something similar. This is where they will be iced.
Make the glaze by mixing together the powdered sugar and cream. Add the cream a tablespoon at a time until the glaze is thick but pourable.
Pour the glaze into a small bowl. Drop each doughnut onto the glaze, then lift off, let drip a little, and set back on tray.
Decorate doughnuts with orange sprinkles or jimmies, and enjoy!
