In a large bowl/stand mixer, add your Butter and Sugar and cream together till they’re creamy and smooth. Add in the egg and beat again. (Sometimes can look a little split here)
In a separate bowl, whisk together the Plain Flour, Baking Powder, Cinnamon and Salt. In cup/bowl, whisk together the milk and vanilla.
Add half of the flour mixture and half of the milk mixture and beat till smooth. Add in the other halves of both mixtures and beat again till its all combined.
Using a large disposable piping bag, add all of your mixture. Grease your Mini Doughnut Moulds!
Pipe the mixture into the moulds. You want the mixture to be level (or very slightly below) with the middle bit of the doughnut in the mould so that it doesn’t overflow during baking.
Bake the doughnuts in the oven for 10-13 minutes. They should be solid in colour, and not baking a bubbly sound. Once baked, take out the oven and turn the moulds upside down onto a tray for two minutes.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the Caster Sugar and the Cinnamon for the sugar coating. Once the doughnuts having been cooling upside down for two minutes, carefully remove the doughnuts (without burning yourself) from the Mini Doughnut Moulds, and toss each one in the Cinnamon Sugar and leave to cool on another tray.
Some Doughnut Moulds are different shapes and sizes – so keep an eye on the Doughnuts after 10 minutes. Also, how much people will put in each mould also varies – practice with time and you will perfect the amount to use in each one! I bought my Mini Doughnut Moulds on Amazon!
You could dip the doughnuts in Chocolate if you want, but as they’re so light and soft you have to be careful when doing it! I often just serve mine with a dipping pot of chocolate instead!
You don’t have to use Cinnamon if you don’t want to, or you could use a different spice, but I adore these as they are in the recipe!
This recipe was adapted and altered from a recipe on All Recipes.
These will last for 2-3 days at room temperature, but are best on the day of baking!
