Halloween Doughnuts!

22/10/2015
Hellooo Lovelies,
So of course it is nearly Halloween! I'm normally really into Halloween, however this year I have been distracted because I'm on holiday for it (Talking of which, I am currently in the sky flying to Florida!) When thinking about how I’ll spend mine sunbathing on the beaches of Florida, I realised that not everyone will be there. So I created this concoction...
 
You Will Need (makes about 18):


·         75g plain flour

·         ½ tsp baking powder

·         ¼ tsp salt

·         55g Caster sugar

·         60ml milk

·         1 egg, beaten

·         1 tsp olive oil

·         ½ tsp vanilla extract

·         Assortment of Food Colouring

·         50g Icing Sugar

·         Icing pens

·         Silicone Doughnut tray ( Similar here)

Recipe:
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Lightly brush the doughnut tray with cooking oil.
  3. Take a large  bowl and sift the flour, baking powder and salt into it.
 
 
 
 
4. Add the sugar and give it a stir to thoroughly combine it all.
 
 
 
 
5. In a separate bowl whisk the milk, beaten egg, olive oil and vanilla extract together.
 


6. Then add this to the dry ingredients, mixing thoroughly.
 
 
7. Now divide your mixture into 3 different bowls adding a different food colouring to each.
 



 
8. Using a teaspoon carefully fill each of the doughnut moulds around ¾ full with the batter. Place in the oven and bake for about 8 minutes, or until firm, but springy to the touch.
 

 
9.  Allow to cool slightly, before popping them out onto a cooling rack.
 
10. Mix the icing sugar with a teaspoon of water, adding also 1/2 drops of food colouring. Then drizzle over the top. Or as my little brother did, just use the icing pens and create your own pattern!
 



 
11. Eat the doughnuts, with a surprising pop of colour inside!
 
 
Thank you to my 4 year old brother who helped me make these... interesting doughnuts. They do however taste amazing!! Have a lovely Halloween!
