First time ever making Baked Doughnuts with Chocolate Glaze and using a silicon tray. The recipe says an electric mixer is not required but when you’ve just bought a stand mixer you look for excuses to use it 😊 So so good and soft.

Well, if you prefer not to fry them, then you're in luck with these easy baked donuts You will end up with less preparation work, and also less cleanup, and mess. Above all, you will find that these baked Doughnuts are super delicious and maybe even better than those fried.
- 100 g butter melted
- 45 ml vegetable oil
- 125 g castor sugar
- 2 eggs at room temperature
- 100 ml buttermilk (I used 100 ml cream and 1 tbsp vinegar)
- 60 ml milk
- 1 tsp vanilla essence (I used extract)
- 210 g all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tbs Castor sugar
- 2 Tsp Ground cinnamon
- 2 tbsp Melted butter
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips or 1/2 slab dark chocolate
- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 tbs corn syrup
- 1 – 2 tsp hot water if needed
Preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F.
Spray doughnut pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large jug whisk together butter, oil, castor sugar, eggs, buttermilk, milk, and vanilla.
Stir to combine.
Pour the wet ingredients into dry ingredients and with a whisk/mix until the batter is smooth and lump-free.
No electric mixer needed. I used my stand mixer because it’s new and I like playing with it, which could also be why they were so pillowy.
Spoon batter into doughnut pan and tap lightly to spread evenly.
Do not overfill the pan as they rise quite high.
Bake for + 15 minutes until cooked through.
Leave to rest for 2 minutes before turning out.
First, dip the doughnut into butter then roll it in the sugar mix.
Melt the chocolate, butter, and corn syrup on 50% power in the microwave, stirring frequently until smooth and melted.
Add hot water if the mixture is too thick.
Dip doughnut into the chocolate glaze and let drain on wire rack.
To glaze I melted a slab of Aero bubble, 4 Ferrero Rocher chocolates (which were in the drawer next to my bed), and a little cream in the microwave.

It is true that the humble doughnut does have a convoluted past that involves Dutch immigrants, Russian exiles, French bakers, Irving Berlin, Clark Gable and a certain number of Native Americans. And, yes, in its democratic ethos, its optimism, and its assorted origins, it does seem rather quintessentially American.
