Caramel baked doughnut recipe

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.

Baked cinnamon maple syrup donuts

Yes, my cinnamon addiction is showing again. Many moons ago I blogged cinnamon donuts but since buying a mini donut pan on our trip to San Fran last year I’ve been going baked donut crazy!

I found a wonderful recipe on Tidy Mom’s site and reduced the sugar and upped the maple syrup. If you can’t get your hands on maple syrup I’d suggest switching it for something else – maybe golden syrup. Imitation anything – yet especially syrup – is grim and pointless. Continue reading

Easy baked cinnamon donuts

Fact: I’m not a big fan of sickly sweet iced and sprinkled donuts but once every couple of years I will indulge in a warm cinnamon donut. The planets need to be aligned in order for this to happen: the donut needs to be freshly cooked, in something other than lard [uurrggh] and inevitably we will be at a country show.

I often make baked donuts at home as they are easy and oh so moreish. I also enjoying dusting off my mini bundt pan, which you’ll need one of to make these lovelies. I do like me some cinnamon.

This recipe is from preparedpantry.com and makes 12 mini bundt size donuts.

GATHER:

1 1/2 cups plain flour

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1 large egg

1/2 cup butter, melted

1/2 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup caster sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

LET’S GET TO IT:

Preheat oven to 180C. Spray cooking spray onto mini bundt pan, ensuring it gets into all the nooks and crannies.

Whisk flour, baking powder, 1/2 cup sugar, and nutmeg in a medium bowl .

Beat the egg, melted butter, milk, and vanilla in another bowl. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until combined – do not over-mix.

Spoon the batter into mini bundt pans and smooth the tops.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden.

While the donuts are baking, mix the remaining 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl.

After donuts are cooked allow to stand for a few minutes in pan before removing and rolling in cinnamon sugar mix while still warm.
