Mini Doughnuts!

Eek I'm in love with these baked mini doughnuts! I love things in mini!

Owens niece Zara came up for the week to hang out and have a break before she embarks on a pastry course down in Nelson next year. Someone who loves to bake to hanging out with another person who loves to bake = so much fun in the kitchen...especially when it came to the eating part!

I'm going to post some recipes and things we have been up to over the weekend over the coming week, but the first is these ADORABLE mini doughnuts which I am in love with. What's better is that these are baked, not deep fried so they aren't as complicated or fatty (if you don't think about how easy it is to pop lots in your mouth because they are so mini!!!!) but they are still delicious and of course a feast for the eyes.

The recipe, from Heather at Sprinkle Bakes is below.

Mini Doughnuts

1 ½ cups plain flour
¾ cups sugars
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp vanilla
¼ tsp salt
1 large egg
½ cup milk
½ cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 180deg C.
Beat milk, egg and vanilla and ¼ of the sugar together.
In a separate bowl mix flour, ½ cup sugar, baking powder and salt.
Add flour mixture to egg mixture and beat to combine.
Pour melted butter over dough and mix until incorporated.
Put batter in piping bag and pipe into a doughnut baking pan.

They only take about 8-10mins to cook.
