Baked Mini Doughnuts

Check out How to Bake Mini Doughnuts by Huang Kitchen on Snapguide.

Doughnuts are usually fried, not baked, at our local doughnut shop. This recipe however bakes just as delicious if not better than those fried doughnuts. Of course clean up is far easier and minus the calories too.The ingredients required are simple, easy, everyday ingredients. There’s no mixer required at all, but you will need a doughnut pan. ( My doughnut pan was bought in Singapore by my daughter’s friend, Chris). I suppose you can use a muffin pan for this if you don’t have a doughnut pan. Baked doughnuts do not take long to bake in the oven. Just bake until the edges are very lightly browned about 8 minutes. They’ll be done before you know it!

The batter comes out pretty thick, is it? Not easy to spread un donut mould… So the top of donuts come out bumpy. But tastes good. Anything that we can do to make the top smooth and a good allover round.

Yes, you can. Put the batter in a piping bag with a rather big nozzle. Otherwise, just use a ziplock bag, spoon the batter in, push to one corner, snip one end and pipe the batter into the pan. That way, it will be smooth. Hope this can help you make a smooth top.

Baked donuts instead of deep fried is indeed a very good idea. Looks like you are getting more advancing in your baking. Donuts looks good.
