The Olympics are finally here!! After all the anticipation and excitement the opening ceremony was amazing. I feel so proud and happy to be in London :) Of course I couldn't let the opportunity to bake something pass me by for such a momentous occasion so I present to you olympic ring mini cake doughnuts! These are baked doughnuts which are healthier for you and taste more cake like. They don't have a crust like a fried doughnut but they taste pretty good!
I am entering this to Calendar Cakes hosted by Laura from Laura Loves Cakes and Rachel from Dolly Bakes. The theme for July is Olympics. I can't wait to see the round up!
Sporting Snacks on Fabulicious Food hosted by Ren as these are quick and easy to make and would be perfect to munch on whilst watching the games. They would also look good at an Olympic game themed party.
Recipe from Wilton (provided with pan)
The only adaptation I made was to add fresh vanilla seeds from 1 vanilla pod
Recipe says makes 24 mini doughnuts - I made a double recipe which yielded 80 mini doughnuts so I can only assume that 1 recipe given below will actually yield 40 mini doughnuts!!
Vanilla cake doughnut
155g plain flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 egg, lightly beaten
20g butter, melted
1 vanilla pod
Preheat the oven to 220C
Sift the dry ingredients.
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.
Add in the seeds from 1 vanilla pod (or use vanilla essence or paste)
Pour the batter into a piping bag and snip the end off the bag.
Fill the doughnut pan approximately 1/2 full.
Bake for 4-6 minutes or until the tops spring back when touched.
Allow to cool in the pan for a few minutes before removing.
Finish with glaze and or sprinkles.
125g icing sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix all the ingredients together until smooth.
Use immediately to glaze doughnuts.
You can add colouring if required.
