Donut maker instructions

Updated February 21, 2017

Donuts are a popular treat for all ages. Many cities and towns have a variety of local doughnut shops to choose from. You can save yourself a trip by making your own doughnuts at home. In addition to it being convenient, you can control what ingredients go into them when you make your own doughnuts. Doughnut makers ease the difficulty of forming the batter into the popular doughnut shape by cooking it within a mould.

Plug the doughnut machine into the power outlet. Turn it on and allow it to preheat.

Combine the dry doughnut ingredients in a bowl. For example, to make 10 cake doughnuts mix 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1/2 cup of caster sugar, and 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder together. Doughnut recipes vary.

Whisk in the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. For cake doughnuts, whisk in 125 grams of melted butter, 3/4 cup of milk and one egg. Mix the batter until it forms a smooth consistency.

Open the doughnut maker. Coat the inside doughnut moulds with spray cooking oil.

Pour the doughnut mixture in a jug to help direct the batter into the moulds. Pour the batter from the jug into the preheated doughnut rings. Close the lid and allow it to cook for four to six minutes. Open the lid and use a spatula to transfer cooked doughnuts to a cooling rack or plate.
