Baked Doughnuts for Midweek Treats

Transform your midweek snacking with these delightful baked doughnuts that might just become a staple in your kitchen. Whether you have a doughnut baking tray or a doughnut maker, this versatile recipe caters to both, offering a quick and easy way to satisfy your doughnut cravings. Below, you’ll find a simple guide to creating these treats, complete with a cinnamon-sugar option for an extra dash of sweetness.


  • 200g Cake Flour
  • 125g White Sugar
  • 2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 50g Melted Butter
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 1 Large Egg


  1. Preparation: Begin by preheating your oven to 180°C (356°F) and greasing your doughnut pans with non-stick spray. If using a doughnut maker, warm it up for 5 minutes before you start baking.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a sizable bowl, whisk together the cake flour, white sugar, baking powder, and salt until evenly mixed.
  3. Combine Wet Ingredients: To the dry mix, add the milk, melted butter, vanilla essence, and egg. Whisk thoroughly until the mixture is smooth and thick.
  4. Bake: Pour the batter into your doughnut pans or doughnut maker. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or cook in the doughnut maker for 3 minutes, until they turn a lovely golden brown.
  5. Cool: Allow the doughnuts to cool down before you start decorating or serving them.
  6. Cinnamon-Sugar Coating (Optional): For those who prefer a sweet, spiced touch, mix ½ cup of white sugar with ½ tsp of ground cinnamon in a bowl. Melt 50g of butter in another bowl. Dip each doughnut first in the butter, then coat it with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Let it dry before serving.
