Perfect Party Dishes: Baked Donut

I've received an invite from Dhanggit of Dhanggit's Kitchen to participate in her Perfect Party Dishes Blog Event. It's a very brilliant way indeed to source for party recipes in celebration of her daughter, Mayumi, first Birthday party!!!

Actually I've made Hazelnut Chocolate Crescent for this event but being a noob, my puff pastry puffed outta shape and they looked too ugly to be served as party food... and I was lazy to defrost more pastry for the same thing, instead I made these easy peasy AND again extremely healthy treats - Baked Donut! Don't they look pretty? Very healthy cos only uses one tablespoon of oil!

I first saw this in Peony's My Culinary Journey. Then it got refreshed in my mind recently with Belacan's post. Belacan of Little Corner of Mine did a great thing by giving a tip to place chips or coconut flakes on the mini tube pan before pouring in the batter. Since I've gotten my mini tube pan sometime back but haven't got the chance to try out the recipe, this is the chance then.

I checked my larder and I have all the ingredients except for plain yoghurt. I sub it with strawberry flavoured one which turned out to be great! The donuts have mild strawberry flavour but smell wonderful. I've used chocolate chips, strawberry chips and black and white chocolate chips. I guess it must have been our weather as these chips kinda looked melted, very different from Belacan's. The strawberry chips yielded a very heavy strawberry flavour which was nice where else the black and white chips came out looking patchy but I think it looked cute.

I find this Baked Donut will be a great party recipe as one can make this earlier in the morning before serving at the party in the afternoon or evening. Very convenient, easy, healthy but delicious! Dhanggit, I hope you'll love these.

Dearest Mayumi,

Just a little birthday wish from across the miles…
Hope you know there are plenty more where that one came from, too.
Happy Birthday!

Baked Donut

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

1 egg
1 tub (150 gm) plain yogurt
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Toppings: ranging from sweeten coconut flakes, chocolate chips & peanut butter chips

Method :

1. In a big bowl, combine (A).

2. Push the flour to the side and in the center, add in (B). Mix (B) well with a spatula and mix the flour in to just combine. Set aside.

3. Spray the donut pan with nonstick cooking spray and divide the sweeten coconut flakes and chocolate chips at the bottom of each of the mini tube pans. Divide batter among pans. Place the batter only half full so that you will see donut hole when baked. 3/4 full will not be able to see any donut hole when baked.

4. Bake at 160°C for 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire rack.

~Yield 12-18 baked donuts

Note: Still soft the next day but best eaten on the day it was baked. Belacan had warned not to use coloured sugar coated chips or sprinkles as they will discoloured.

donuts are not my fav, coz they tend to be too sweet, and just not interesting enough (try telling that to homer simpson.. harahr).. might as well eat chocolates or cakes, or something.. however, healthy baked donuts, i just may give a try.. :D

Valisa said...

For the longest time, I resist buying the donut moulds. I don't think I ever will. I am a donut fiend. I love love LOVE Donut.
