Unless you have been living under a rock, you have seen all of the amazing products and toys all centered around Star Wars™.  Recently, both of our kids have really gotten into all things Star Wars™ which has been a lot of fun.  We have to answer a lot of questions about who is who but it sure does make shopping fun!

On our latest shopping trip we picked up some breakfast essentials; Star Wars™ Go-Gurt and Star Wars™ Darth Vader Cereal.  Look, I will do anything to make breakfast time on school mornings easier and if Star Wars™ is that ticket I will buy it! Well, I decided to do a little more for the kids and create a fun donut topped with their new Star Wars™ Darth Vader Cereal.  I must say, these Galactic Vanilla Bean Glazed Donuts were SO GOOD!

Instructions:

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  

2.  Prepare donut pan by spraying with cooking spray. 

3.  In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt - mix lightly. 

4.  In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until mixture is creamy.  I used a hand mixer. 

5.  Beat in vanilla bean seeds, egg, and vanilla until completely combined with sugar mixture. 

6.  Add milk and mix for 2 minutes.

7.  Slowly beat in the flour mixture until combined well. 

8.  Spoon batter into donut pan.  Each donut tin should be about half full - do not overfill!

10.  While donuts are baking prepare the glaze.  In a small bowl whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla, salt and vanilla.  If the glaze is too thick simply add another TBSP of milk to the glaze.  

11.  Once donuts are baked, remove from tin and let cool completely.

Such a fun treat for mornings with the kids.  I was actually surprised how easy this recipe really was too.  And, I love that they are not fried - baked donuts make my mommy brain enjoy the treat even more!  It was a lot of fun having breakfast with the kids as we discussed Star Wars™.  Jeremy and I blew their mind when we said we watched Star Wars™ when we were kids!  You know, because we are SO OLD!
