Low Calorie Doughnuts

20180128_133700

I know right!….low calorie doughnuts! O.M.G! Who knew? These are inspired by Tom Kerridge, I just needed to give these a go after seeing him bake these on TV, I have to say they are amazing, the flavour is fabulous and they are extremely light and fluffy too. At ONLY 120 CALORIES per Doughnut……..why would you not?? I have to say I was in heaven this afternoon……my fav Sunday afternoon treat….Fresh Coffee & Doughnuts! (no guilt)

 

Makes 6

250g Self Raising flour

180ml milk – semi-skimmed

25g butter

2 tbsp sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp chinese five spice

1/2 tsp dried yeast

1 egg beaten

1 tsp vanilla extract

 

  1. Gently heat the milk, butter and vanilla extract in a saucepan on hob. (do not boil)
  2. In a mixer, sift the flour, 1 tbsp sugar (keep 1 tbsp back for finishing), cinnamon, chinese five spice and yeast, mix together.                                           20180128_104504
  3. Add in the egg to the flour and mix then add in the milk mixture and mix until you get a thick batter.                                                                              20180128_104836
  4. If you have a doughnut tray…..brilliant! If not, (like me) spoon the mixture into a piping bag and grease a baking tray.                                                  20180128_105226
  5. Gently pipe round circles like doughnuts onto the tray.                                   20180128_105635
  6. If you have a proving setting on your oven set or place in a warm place and allow to rise for about 2 hours.                                                                 20180128_105656
  7. Preheat your oven to 210 deg and bake for about 10 minutes.
  8. Remove and allow to cool slightly.
  9. Brush each doughnut with a little water and dip into the remaining sugar. You could also use light brown sugar and maybe add 1 tsp of cinnamon for extra flavour.

Then………devour………..and don’t feel guilty about it! Happy Days!
