Hazzzaaaa! Baked Doughnuts!

Spiced Vanilla Baked Doughnuts with Vanilla Glaze

So, you might have read my last adventure in experimental baking: The Baked Doughnut.

Since I made that first batch I have been super busy with work, most nights I have been working til very late at night. So no baking. :(

Tonight I was finally able to have  night off and I decided to make a new and improved batch, with the aim of making them lighter and fluffier. I didn't use any fancy equipment, just mixing bowls, whisks, the doughnut pan and the oven.

They are beautiful, light and fluffy with a nice crisp shell and a lovely caramel colour. I'm super-duper pleased with them!!!

10. You can dip them in the glaze when warm for a thin coating or wait until they are cool and add a thicker layer. It's up to you!!!

Note: I may or may not have completely submerged a hot doughnut in the glaze and then plonked it on a plate to eat with a cup of tea in celebration. ;)
