I love the fact you can make doughnuts from home!
Don’t get me wrong, we aren’t frying these bad boys, but they still are mini bites of doughnutty deliciousness.
One of the best baking buys I ever made was a doughnut pan for the oven. They are perfect for parties and little presents, and I’ve got plenty more recipes for making all sorts of little gourmet doughnuts. This is the one I’ve got that works perfectly! I’m sure you’ll be able to find them all over the place by now. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Wilton-Cavity-Mini-Donut-Pan/dp/B004CYELQ4/ref=sr_1_sc_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1389351958&sr=8-2-spell&keywords=dougnnut+pan
Ingredients (for 12):
- 75g plain flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 55g caster sugar
- 55ml milk
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tsp olive oil
- dash of vanilla essence
Step One: Preheat oven to 160 degrees, and lightly brush pan with cooking oil
Step Two: Add all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl, making sure its all mixed thoroughly
Step Three: Whisk all the liquid ingredients together and then add it to the dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly, you should have a moderately runny batter
Step Four: The fiddly bit. Using a teaspoon fill up each of the doughnut cups 3/4 up to top. Bake for 9 minutes, wait to cool and pop them out!
Step Five: Decorate however you want! i just smothered them in melted chocolate….sifting of sugar, runny icing & sprinkles would all suffice as well!
