Baked doughnuts (version 2)

I want doughnuts! This is what I heard quite often lately from my daughter, so here I am.
I have a sandwich maker that knows to make also nice doughnuts and this is the way I did these ones. A healthier way compared to frying them in hot oil. But if you do not have such a device, frying them is an alternative.
My daughter wanted absolutely to decorate them and instead of making a glaze and she was so happy to play with sugar paste. The decoration is exclusively made by her and I can only be proud of her skills.
If you do not decorate them, you might increase the quantity of sugar up to 250g, but as I knew that the decoration was sugar paste I preferred to make the dough less sweet.

  • 450g all purpose flour
  • 50g sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 250g melted butter
  • 500ml milk
  • 2 eggs
  • (optional) sugar paste for decoration - about 250g for 8 doughnuts.

  1. If you have a mixer, put all ingredients in a bowl and mix them well. If you mix by hand, combine all dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients (mixed) and mix again.
  2. Let the batter covered to sit for 30 minutes.
  3. Bake the doughnuts or fry them in hot oil. I prefer the healthier version so I bake them in a special doughnuts machine. It takes about 2 icecream scoops for each doughnut and around 10 minutes to bake a set of 2.
  4. Let them cool on a rack.
  5. When cooled, you can add the decoration on top.
