Halloween baked donuts recipe

Growing up in Australia, Halloween was a something we were only familiar with thanks to American movies and TV shows. Remember the scene in ET when they take the cute alien trick or treating? That was probably my first introduction to Halloween. In the last few tears though, it has slowly become ‘a thing’ here and shops are currently full of plastic orange pumpkins and ghouls.

Lemon baked doughnut recipe

My love of baking is legendary but what you may not know about me is that I love politics. Before you click ‘unfollow’, hear me out: I’m not going to share my politics with you, nor bore you with stats. I just find elections exciting and the democratic process fascinating. Plus there’s always a cake stall for which I undertake a marathon baking effort. Continue reading

Caramel baked doughnuts - The Hungry Mum

Once upon a time, there was a little girl who very much looked forward to the annual show held in her town.

The show took part in a park just footsteps from the little girl’s home and as the big day approached – it was always at the end of November – she watched in excitement as the show took shape.

One of her favourite stalls was run by the local boy scouts, who made and sold hot doughnuts. In today’s overly cautious world it is hard to imagine a group of rambunctious boys and a huge pot of boiling oil, but back then it was fine. Continue reading

Pink baked doughnuts

Pink baked doughnuts

I know, I know – pink isn’t a food. It is a way of life, especially if you’re in the under 8 set, like my second-born. She is a poster girl for everything pink and girly and frilly. Even when she is climbing trees or running around at soccer training she is usually in clashing shades of shocking and pastel pink.

I have no idea why, I have never been a fan of gender-cliched dressing and my first born has a dislike of pink bordering on the obsessive.

My go to colour is red and I have always sought out clothes in colours other than pink for my gals but it just goes to show that pink is boss.

So to these doughnuts… I tweaked a recipe I found at Mary Quite Contrary Bakes – see the original here: http://www.maryquitecontrarybakes.com/2011/05/strawberry-glazed-doughnuts.html . I used a mini pan so this recipe made heaps!

Baked doughnuts are fun to make but you will need a doughnut baking pan and a Ziploc bag to make them.

GATHER:

1 cup flour

1/3 cup sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/3 cup milk

1 egg

1 tbsp melted butter

3 tablespoons strawberry jam

1 tbsp pure maple syrup

smidge pink food colouring – optional

Pink baked doughnuts - a cute treat that will make you smile.

LET’S GET TO IT:

Preheat oven to 180 C and thoroughly spray a mini doughnut pan with non-stick baking spray.

In a large metal bowl stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar and cinnamon until combined.

Make a well in the centre, add in milk, egg, butter, syrup and jam (and food colouring if using) and quickly stir until just combined.

Get a large plastic cup or jug and open a Ziploc bag, then push the open bag into the cup and fold the top of the bag over the rim of the glass. Pour the batter into the bag, then use a pair of scissors to cut the corner off the bag.

Pipe into the donut pan until two-thirds full then bake for around 7-9 minutes – they don’t take long.

Remove from oven, flip onto cooling rack, then repeat with remaining batter – make sure you spray pan each time with baking spray.

glaze:

Sift 1 cup sifted icing sugar into a bowl then mix with milk until it is a thick pouring consistency – drizzle over cold doughnuts then sprinkle over 100s and 1000s.
