GUESS what…it’s almost HALLOWEEN….
I just love Halloween and in all seriousness I was the first to celebrate it with my family in the town we currently live in. Nobody knew what it was when I first moved here, they had heard about it, but that’s about it. Even in Germany they celebrate it more than here and it’s just around the corner.
When I lived in the States I just became hooked on Halloween. I don’t think I will ever go a year without celebrating it.
Now 14 years later, we have a lot of Halloween props and candy in the stores and it has finally settled in. I’m very happy about it and so is my daughter.
For the past 5 or 6 years my daughter has always had a Halloween party for her and her friends, they all dress up and do fun and scary stuff. They all love it and it gives me a great excuse to cook and bake crazy food. So, …here we go
Makes 6 Donuts
Pre heat oven to 350° F
Needed: Wilton Nonstick 6-Cavity Donut Pan
1 C.All Purpose Flour
Remove one tablespoon and replace it with Corn Starch
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
pinch of Pink Himalayan Salt
1 large egg at room temperature
1/3 C. fine Caster Sugar
6 tbsp. Buttermilk
2 tbsp. melted Butter
1 tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract
Sieve the first four ingredients very well together.
In an other bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.
Stir in to the flour mixture. DO NOT OVER MIX.
Grease your doughnut pan or oil spray. Divide the batter between the holes.
Bake for 8 – 10 minutes. Insert a tooth pick to test if they are done. If it comes out dry they are ready. Remove them from the oven. Let cool completely before icing.
For the icing I have used confectioners sugar with natural food colours
and a Halloween Sprinkle Mix
The icing has to be thick or it will absorb into the doughnuts.
