Cranberry Orange Donuts:

1 cup all- purpose flour

½ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoonsalt

½ cup CapeCodSelect Frozen Cranberries

¼ cup unsalted butter (melted & cooled)

½ cup granulated sugar

½ teaspoon orange zest

1 large egg (room temperature)

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

½ cup sour cream (room temperature)

1 tablespoon milk

Orange Glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar

1 tablespoon unsalted butter (melted & cooled)

2 tablespoons orange juice or milk

Cranberry Orange Donuts:

1.Preheat oven to 350° F and grease a donut pan.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the cranberries to lightly coat them with the flour mixture.

3. In a large bowl, mix together the butter and sugar. Stir in the orange zest, egg, vanilla extract and sour cream.

4. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients just until combined, then gently stir in the milk.

5. Spoon or pipe batter into the prepared donut pan, about ⅔ full (makes about 7 thick donuts but quantity will vary depending on donut size).

6. Bake donuts until they’re light tan around the edges and spring back when lightly pressed (about 15-25 minutes).

7. Let donuts cool in the pan until it’s just warm to the touch. Then take them out and let them finish cooling on a wire rack.

Orange Glaze:

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, butter and orange juice.

2. Dip the cooled donuts into the glaze and cover with sprinkles (optional).
