- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 C sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 3/4 C buttermilk
- 3 tbsp unsalted sweet cream butter, melted
- 1/4 C honey

- 2 tbsp fat free sour cream
- Donut baking pan
- Cooking/baking spray
Honey Glaze Ingredients
- 1 C powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
- 2 tbsp honey

Whew! I know that seems like a lot of items to gather for this recipe, but hang in there! The end result is definitely worth the wait!
Winnie the Pooh Donut Directions
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a donut pan with pam baking spray.
In a standing mixer, whisk together the eggs, sugar, buttermilk, sour cream, melted butter, honey and vanilla until combined and smooth. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and whisk until combined.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely on the counter while you make the glaze.
Honey Glaze Directions
Using a medium bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, heavy whipping cream and honey until smooth.
If the batter is thick and clumpy, mix in 2 more tablespoons of heavy whipping cream.
Pour the glaze into a squeeze bottle and remove donuts from baking pan and onto a wire rack with a cookie sheet underneath. Drizzle the glaze onto the doughnuts and randomly place a bee onto the donuts. Allow glaze to dry for about 10-15 minutes before enjoying!
