Peach Ale Peaches and Cream Donuts

Ingredients

For the Donuts

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 large egg room temperature and lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup peach ale
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 8 ounce cream cheese softened
  • 2 - 3 peaches peeled and very small diced

For the Glaze

  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 - 4 teaspoons vanilla bean paste according to taste
  • 1/2 cup whole milk - start with 1/4 cup then add 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency - this can be halved because I love a lot of glaze

Instructions

For the Donuts

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg, milk, butter, vanilla bean paste, peach ale
  4. Gently stir the wet ingredients into the dry, then stir in the cream cheese - cream cheese may be lumpy, but it's ok
  5. Coat donut pans with cooking spray
  6. Spoon batter into donut pans almost all the way full - evenly sprinkle in peach pieces into the batter in the pan - NOTE: I did it before and after adding the batter and it made no difference
  7. Bake 23 - 26 minutes
  8. Cool for 5 minutes or so on a wire rack then turn out on rack to cool completely

For the Glaze

  1. Add sugar to a bowl and stir in vanilla bean paste and 1/4 cup milk
  2. Continue adding milk 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached
  3. Pour over donuts
