Costa Rican Baked Doughnuts
- 2 cups masa harina
- 1.5 tsp salt
- 3 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1 cup warm water
- 0.33 cup creamed corn
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 large bowl
- 1 baking tray
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, mix masa harina, salt, and brown sugar together. Add the warm water in small batches, mixing with your hands.
After water is combined, add creamed corn and vanilla, mixing with your hands to combine.
When dough forms, pinch off thumb-size pieces and roll between your hands.
Form small palm-size tubes and close them to form rings.
Place rings on greased baking tray and bake for about 35 minutes, or until golden brown.
Allow to cool before enjoying.
These are a combination of corncake, muffin, and doughnut, so you can make them into a savory meal with salsa, avocados, jalapeños, and hot sauce, or bring out their sweetness with a dollop of syrup and fresh fruit.
