  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 160°C (140°C, gas mark 3) Lightly brush the mini doughnut tin with oil or melted butter to prevent the doughnuts from sticking.

  2. 2

    In a bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar until fully incorporated.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 150g Plain white flour
    • 1tsp Baking powder
    • ½tsp Salt
    • 110g Unrefined golden caster sugar
  3. 3

    In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, melted butter, egg and vanilla bean paste.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 120ml Milk (whole)
    • 20g Butter (unsalted) melted
    • 2 Egg(s) (free range)
    • 1½tsp Vanilla bean paste
  4. 4

    Make a well in the flour bowl and gradually pour in the liquid. Mix together to form a batter.

  5. 5

    Using a teaspoon carefully spoon the mixture into each of the holes in the doughnut tin. Only fill 3/4 full as the mixture will puff up when baked.

  6. 6

    Bake in the oven for approximately 8 minutes or until golden in colour. Remove from the oven and leave to stand for a few minutes.

  7. 7

    To remove the doughnuts from the tin, flip the tin over and gently tap the base. Alternatively, carefully loosen the doughnuts from the tin by running a blunt knife around the outer rim.

  8. 8

    To make the icing, place the fondant icing sugar in a large bowl (or split into seperate bowls if making a range of different colours) add a few drops of water and a drop of food colouring or flavour extract and mix until you reach a dipping consistency. If you make this too runny add a bit more icing sugar to thicken.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 500g Fondant icing sugar
    • 1 tbsp Water
    • Food colouring (Assorted colours)
    • ½tsp Orange extract
  9. 9

    If you want to make chocolate icing, follow the above steps, adding cocoa powder and omitting the food colouring (you may need to add a touch more liquid)

    For this step you'll need:

    • 25g Cocoa powder
  10. 10

    Decorate with sprinkles and allow the icing to set before serving (if you can wait that long!)
