Mini Iced Doughnuts

I’ve been wanting to make doughnuts for quite some time. The only thing that really put me off was the deep frying in oil part. So when I found this recipe on Taste.com.au for these cute doughnuts I knew I had to make them!

The only problem was I didn’t own a doughnut pan, and I found some at a shop, but there were going to cost me $7.95 per mould! So I trawled through ebay and found a pan that had 12 moulds, and 2 extra pans and a decorating kit for $0.99. The most expensive thing was the postage at $15! It worked the trick and I had mini doughnuts in no time.

So quick and easy to make, these are treats you can whip up easily in no time!


Iced Doughnuts
Taste Website

1/2 cup (75g) plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup (55g) caster sugar

1/4 cup (60ml) milk

1 egg, beaten

1 tbs olive oil

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

25g dark chocolate melts

100s and 1000s or shredded coconut, to decorate


1. Preheat the oven to 180ยฐC.2. Sift flour, baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt into a large bowl and stir in sugar. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, egg, olive oil and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients and stir until smooth.

3. Fill a 12-hole mini-doughnut pan with mixture and bake for 8 minutes or until cooked (when a skewer inserted into centre comes out clean). Allow to cool slightly, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool.

4. Melt the dark chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water). Alternatively, melt it in a microwave on medium (50%) heat for 1 minute, stir, then cook in 30-second bursts, stirring after each. Dip half of each doughnut into the chocolate, then coat in 100s and 1000s or coconut.

5. Topping variations: Sift 1/2 cup icing sugar into a bowl with 2-3 teaspoons lemon juice and stir to dissolve. Dip 1/2 the doughnut in icing, then in 100s and 1000s.

Makes 12


Voila! Bon Appรฉtit!
