Mini baked chocolate doughnuts.

I was tidying out a kitchen cupboard they other day and came across a baking tin I haven’t seen in a long while. In my defence it was a large cupboard and I have huge quantities of baking tins. A rather lovely mini doughnut pan. I have used this tin once beforeand I seem to remember that the doughnuts vanished very quickly. Looking online I found a Lakeland recipe for mini baked doughnuts although this tin is not a Lakeland one.

The tin that hid at the back of the cupboard.

I replaced 20g of the flour in the recipe with 20g of cocoa as I fancied chocolate mini doughnuts and I used cake release spray to grease the tin. I would really like to make bake yeasted doughnuts in this tin too – watch this space!

    Daft question – do baked donuts taste like fried ones? Looks delish- but I must resist buying another cake tin!

      Honestly they taste more cakey than doughnutty because the yeast flavour isn’t there. I do want to try and make a yeasted dough for these mini doughnuts and that will be more like the fried ones I’m sure. You can NEVER have too many cake tins!

    Mmmm, I’ve made these too –
    Indeed, I might hunt the tin out from the back of the cupboard!! Although I am trying to avoid cake!!!!

      You know, it might actually help, the quantities are so small even if you ate half of them it wouldn’t be that bad!! One is about a bite and a bit but just enough to satify a craving. Go on, get to the back of that cupboard.
