Glitter mini doughnuts

We made it to FriYAY of the doughnut week! Well done everybody! I am sure it wasn’t too tough! Although mine was busy I loved every second of it (except for the guy who stole my parking today) 

Ending off doughnut week is something simple but elegant. Our dressed to impress Friday night mini doughnut topped in edible glitter! Great for a girls night or just to impress these little guys will make a huge impression! 


•   150 grams cake flour

•   1teaspoon Baking powder

•   ½ teaspoon Salt

•   110 grams caster sugar

•   120ml buttermilk

•   2 Eggs

•   20 grams Butter (unsalted) melted

•      1 ½ teaspoon vanilla paste

•      ½ teaspoon almond essence

•      500 grams icing sugar

•      1 egg white

•      1 tub edible glitter


Preheat your oven to 160 degrees Celsius.

Spray your mini doughnut tin lightly and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking powder salt and castor sugar. Whisking creates air and removes lumps.

In a separate bowl whisk together the milk, melted butter, egg, vanilla and almond essence.

Make a well in the flour bowl and in third stages mix in the wet ingredients. Whisking after each addition until fully combined in a batter.

Using a spoon fill the doughnut tin. Don’t fill more than ¾ full, as they will rise when they are baked. Bake in the oven for 8 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.

Set aside on a cooling rack once baked.

In a separate bowl mix together the icing sugar and egg white. You are making royal icing which sets quickly and dries hard, so work fast. Once your icing sugar is mixed use a butter knife to ice the top of your doughnuts. Sprinkle edible glitter on them before the icing dries. Leave them to fully set on the cooling rack. 

Serve with cocktails and have an amazing weekend!
