Cardamom Donut Bites with Orange-Honey Glaze

Makes 4 dozen
Time 4 hr
A hearty whole wheat buttermilk dough is the base for these baked donut bites. Cardamom, honey, fresh orange juice and toasted pistachios lend loads of flavor.
Ingredients
  • 3 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour plus more for dusting
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 2/3 cup honey divided
  • 4 tablespoons melted unsalted butter plus more for the bowl
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 1/2 cup toasted pistachios very finely ground
  • 1 cup turbinado sugar
Method

In a large bowl, combine flour, cardamom, salt and yeast. In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk, 1/3 cup of the honey, butter and egg, and then add to flour mixture and stir until combined. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead until elastic and smooth, about 5 minutes. Butter a clean, large bowl, arrange dough in the bowl and set aside in a warm spot, covered, until risen by half, about 1 1/2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. On a lightly floured surface, gently press dough into a 12x9-inch rectangle. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut into 48 squares and arrange on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. (The donut bites will almost touch, but leave a scant 1/2-inch between them.) Bake until puffed and golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, combine orange juice and remaining 1/3 cup honey in a medium bowl. Combine pistachios and sugar in a second bowl.

When cool enough to handle, dip donuts in orange syrup, and then roll in pistachio mixture to coat. Serve immediately.
