Baked Doughnut
« on: September 12, 2011, 07:22:51 pm »
I thought l'd kick off some healthier eating on my part by baking some doughnuts  ;)  Well, they aren't fried anyway!

Ingredients

170g flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
75g superfine sugar (l used ground up raw sugar)
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
65g milk
75g plain yoghurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg

Method

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

Mix flour, baking powder, sugar, nutmeg and salt together for approx. 25 seconds at speed 6.
Add butter and mix 20 seconds at speed 5-6.
Put in whisk and add milk, yoghurt, vanilla and egg.  Whisk for 20 seconds at speed 3 (l scraped down the sides half way through).

Use piping bag or spoon to put mixture into doughnut tray, until about 3/4 full.  Bake in oven until golden brown and spring back when touched (around 10 minutes).  Let cool slightly, remove from tray and cover with favourite glaze.




Recipe from Lara Ferroni's Doughnuts

Molly - Oh my goodness! Okay.  They're NOT fried doughnuts.  And I am quite partial to fried doughnuts. BUT!!!!!  They are delumptious!!!!  The kids are lining up for more....  they're only coated in fine sugar (had to brush with butter to make it stick) and mine have cinnamon as well.  Shhhh,  don't tell 'em!!   Oh,  and I didn't have any yogurt,  so I used Ricotta cheese.  I've converted it to Failsafe diet... and put it on my blog.  Smiley  Thank you!!!!!

Denzelmum -
Made half in my mini donut maker and half in the oven.  We enjoyed the one from mini donut maker without any topping, yum! Don't have donut tray, just used my muffin top pan. Different way to finish and turn out very different.  With electric donut maker taste more like donut, nice plain... while with muffin top, well it's more like muffin top.  Great option for lunch box.

Healthy donuts  ;D ;D  Do they taste like and stay fresher for longer than normal donuts katesjoy?

This was my first attempt at doughnuts - still waiting on how long they stay fresh!  :D  The couple that are left, have been on the bench for 12 hours now (the nieces haven't been yet!)and are still lovely and soft. They are a tiny bit heavier than bought ones - but with most things Thermie made, I think they taste better.  Will make again definitely.

LOL Yeah thinking about it I can see how that would be so true, I have all my big and many wedding cake tins to deal with as well and resulted to storing those in the loft now. Jeez what s a girl to do?
I dont fancy buying doughnut tins I will just make my doughnuts round and ice them, WHEN I GET TO IT .

The problem is, Frozzie, if you skim there is the chance that you will miss something really interesting or tasty.  I usually skim as well, but am always afraid I will miss a real gem.

Yes, Maddy's skills as a shopper and cup cake Queen are a terrible temptation to me as well.  I have started closing my eyes and just peering out through a wee slit that I leave open when I see her posts.
