Yes – a donut with alcohol. How genuis is that? It combines lots of the good stuff that makes life worth living. Plus it is baked, so you don’t have to worry about scary boiling oil. Or is that just me? I will not boil oil under any circumstances. #scaredyCat
I have a mini donut pan but am on the look-out for a normal size one. These are teeny tiny so it means you can eat more – score!
Don’t worry if you’re not a big drinker as the rum taste won’t knock you out [or over] – it just adds a zing that makes your heart sing. Or something.
I found this recipe from diethood.com http://diethood.com/mojito-doughnuts/ and tweaked it
1 cup plain flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons rum
3 tablespoons butter, softened
LET’S GET TO IT:
Preheat oven to 180C and in a large, heat-proof bowl whisk flour, sugar and baking powder together.
Place milk, butter, egg and rum in a medium saucepan over a medium heat, stirring all the while, until the butter melts.
Remove from heat and pour into the flour mixture and gently stir until combined.
Grease a doughnut pan with cooking spray. Fill a large ziplock bag with the mixture, snip off one corner and pipe into pan.
Depending on size of pan bake for between 9 & 13 minutes / until a skewer comes out clean.
Gently remove from pan and cool on rack. Eat warm [sooo good] or allow to cool completely before dusting with icing sugar.
