Saturday was bake day and bake I did.23. January 2012
On Saturday was my best friend’s bachelorettes party which I had to bake the sweet things for. I made mini doughnuts for the first time ever and I think they came out a treat. They’re like giant cinnamon flavoured popcorn that you can just plough through without even thinking, well at least I would of if there wasn’t 12 other girls at this party. I’m seriously considering making myself a batch the next time Shane is on tour and rolling my face around in them till they ain’t no more.
But anyway enough crazy talk, this is how they turned out and the recipe is below. I slightly adapted it from this one (If you are my friend, you won’t look at her pictures, they are way better than mine).
2 cups flour
Half a cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt (I used slightly less)
1 tbsp butter, melted (unsalted)
Half a cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
Half a tsp nutmeg
Half a tsp cinnamon
1 cup powdered sugar (I used a bit more)
2 tbsp hot water.
How to make -
Preheat oven to 170 degrees
Spray the doughnut pan with non-stick spray
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together.
Add butter, eggs, milk, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Beat until well blended.
Fill your doughnut pan 2/3 fill (I used a piping bag to do this, they came out just right)
Bake for 8 minutes.
How to make the glaze -
Mix sugar and water together till smooth.
Dip the tops of the doughnuts into the glaze and then sprinkle some hundreds and thousands on top of them.
Let them dry.
Then eat them like there is no tomorrow.
I also made this pink almond and chocolate marshmellow cake and some fudge cupcakes. I love it when a baking plan comes toegther, but not so much when it slaps you in the face like a soggy piece of bread.
