Baked Donuts Craze - Part 1

Is DONUTS BAKING CRAZE right NOW!!! I die die also have to get the trays and joined in the fun! I have been baking non-stop since I got hold of the trays, at least 2 - 3 times a week for my kids and family members.

Thanks Peony for the recipe. Here are my donuts!

Thanks Peony for giving the green light to post her recipe here directly for everyone easy reference :)


Ingredients :
1 cup all-purpose flour (I used Top Flour)
1/2 cup sugar (I used 1/4 cup castor sugar)
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt (I used pinch of salt)
1 egg (I used 1 big egg)
1 tub (150 gm ) plain yogurt
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tsp confectioners' sugar, divided

Method :

1. In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
2. Combine the egg, yogurt, oil, lemon juice and vanilla and mix well.
3. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
4. Coat the tube pans with nonstick cooking spray and dust with 1 teaspoon confectioners' sugar. Divide batter among pans.
5. Bake at 200°C for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
6. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
7. Dust with remaining confectioners' sugar.

Hey cranberry!

Fantastic lookin' donuts! Did you cut down on the sugar like peony suggested?? :)

Cranberry said...

Thanks amrita!

Yes I did cut down the sugar, used 1/3 cup instead of 1/2 cup.

Hi Cranberry,

Like your assorted glaze doughnuts, can you share how you made the pinky glaze ?


Cranberry said...

Thanks singairishgal & yvonne.

Hi Yvonne,

Those are melted strawberry chocolate. I added some butter to get the glossy effect.

Put chopped strawberry chocolate and butter in a bowl (double boil) till melted. Cool slightly. Use as desired. So sorry, I didn't measure the qty of the ingredients, only based on agaration.
