INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon rum
  • 1 whole egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • For the Glaze:
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoon dried mint
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan bring together the milk, rum, egg, and butter.
  4. Cook over medium-heat, stirring constantly with a whisk until the butter melts, about one to two minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and add the milk mixture into the flour mixture; mix until combined.
  6. Grease a doughnut pan with cooking spray.
  7. Using a large tablespoon, spoon the doughnut mixture into the pan.
  8. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  9. Remove and immediately invert the pan onto a cooling rack.
  10. While the doughnuts are cooling, begin to work on the glaze.
  11. Place the milk, lime juice, and powdered sugar in a small saucepan and cook over medium-heat, stirring constantly just until combined and no lumps appear.
  12. Remove from heat and set the saucepan over a bowl filled with hot water.
  13. Stir in the dried mint.
  14. Dip the doughnuts into the glaze, one at a time, and set on a rack, glaze side up. Put a baking sheet underneath the rack because some of that glaze will drip off
