Baked Mini Donuts

Donuts 01

I mentioned in my last post that I found a trial and tested bake donut recipe so I ordered a silicone donut tray. Well, I din wait for that to come and gotten a non-stick one today. But I wasn’t lucky with the recipe, followed the recipe to the T, made 2 attempts and yield same result. The first time I did a full recipe and send half to bake which the batter was more like a palible dough than a liquid consistency, I had to scape the dough to the batter tin than pouring in as described. The top layer was really ugly! It wasn’t smooth like a donut at all! It also din rise as much as I thought it is. I thought something is wrong with my baking powder and went on to buy a new bottle. So the 2nd time I make half the recipe and double-check the recipe again and again, I still din get that liquid consitency. I send it to bake and it did rise a little but the texture is the same, it’s pretty hard.

I decided to make another attempt (must justify the cost of buying the tray, right?) but change the flour type, when I finish putting the wet and dry ingredients together I had the same dough like consistency. I guess probably I’m going to get the same result so I decided to be more daring and add 1/2 egg more and a little more milk & melted butter. Finally I got the thick liquid consistency! Send it to bake and at least now it looks like a donut! As for the texture, it’s also much better than the previous one thou not as soft as I thought it will be.  I can’t really describe the texture, a cross between cake and bread? With the tray on hand, I look forward to try another recipe that I’ve got.  I do have a fun time decorating them 🙂
