Mini Baked Donuts

Seeing many recent facebook posts on mini donuts, I couldn't help but go get the donut trays and baked these lil' baby donuts last night. Quick and easy! They are actually more like 'cakey' taste as compare to the usual donuts. But although I really like the usual J.Co style 'fried' donuts texture soft & fluffy, they are unhealthier. So I tried this healthier option, bake them!

My daughter Falisha loved it :)

What you need
130 gr (1½ cup) all purpose flour
75 gr (1/3 cup + 2 tbsp) sugar
7 gr (1½ tbsp) salted butter, melted
5 gr (1 tsp) baking powder
2 gr (½ tsp) salt
1 egg
70 ml milk
60 ml whipping cream (I used thicken cream)
5 ml (1 tsp) vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease your trays/moulds with melted butter.

In a big bowl, stir together the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Mix in the melted butter, the milk, the whipping cream, the egg, and the vanilla extract and whisk to mix well until there's no lumps. This recipe yields a pretty sticky thicky dough. Feel free to add in more milk or whipping cream if you prefer a slightly wetter dough.

Pipe each donut hole 2/3 full, or even less. Don’t put too much dough into the holes or you will end up with donuts without holes! LOL. It is not necessary to use donut trays but I found them cuter this way. You can use any other types of mould. I did the heart-shape one too :)

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the tops spring back when lightly touched. Bake slightly longer if you prefer your donuts to be more brown. Unmould them and let them cool on a wire rack.

I used chocolate ganache & sprinkles for the decoration. You can exploring with different types of toppings. Have fun!
