The Perfect Doughnut Making Kit
To begin your mini ring doughnut adventure, you'll need the right tools and ingredients. A doughnut making kit can provide you with everything you need for a successful baking experience. The essentials typically include:
Cast Iron Doughnut Pan:
The cast iron doughnut pan is a versatile and durable tool that allows for even heat distribution, resulting in perfectly baked doughnuts. Its ring-shaped moulds create the classic doughnut shape and give your treats a delightful texture.
Doughnut Mix :
The doughnut mix simplifies the process by providing you with a pre-measured blend of dry ingredients. With just the addition of water, you can quickly whip up a smooth and consistent doughnut batter.
Treat Chocolate Sauce:
No doughnut is complete without a delectable glaze or sauce. The chocolate sauce included in the kit adds a rich and indulgent touch to your mini ring doughnuts, elevating them to a whole new level of deliciousness.
Rainbow Sprinkles and Zillionaire Sprinkles:
Sprinkles are a colourful and fun way to decorate your mini ring doughnuts. The kit includes both rainbow sprinkles and zillionaire sprinkles, giving you the freedom to choose between a vibrant burst of colours or a touch of elegance and sophistication.
Pink & White Mini Marshmallows:
Adding marshmallows to your mini ring doughnuts offers a delightful texture and a burst of sweetness. The pink and white marshmallows included in the kit add a charming visual element to your treats.
Crafting Mini Ring Doughnuts
Now that we have familiarised ourselves with the contents of the doughnut making kit, let's dive into the step-by-step process of creating these delightful mini ring doughnuts:
Preparing the Doughnut Batter:
Follow the instructions provided with the doughnut mix. You will need to add 250ml of water to the mix and stir until you achieve a smooth and thick batter.
Greasing the Cast Iron Doughnut Pan:
To ensure easy release and prevent sticking, first, wash your pan with warm soapy water. Lightly grease the cast iron doughnut pan with oil using a cloth. Heat both side of the pan over a medium heat for around 3 minutes. Once finished, allow to cool on a heat proof surface. Some smoking is normal during this process. Do not allow the flame or heat source to extend beyond the base of the pan. For a good non-stick covering, repeat this process a couple of times. When you come to cook your doughnuts, oil each ring mould again.
Filling the Doughnut Moulds:
Using a spoon or a piping bag, (roughly a teaspoon to each hole) carefully fill each ring mould in the cast iron doughnut pan with the prepared batter, ensuring they are evenly filled.
Baking the Mini Ring Doughnuts:
Place the cast iron doughnut pan over a low heat until the bottom is cooked through and coloured. Then turn the doughnuts carefully using a pallet knife and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.
Glazing and Decorating:
Once the mini ring doughnuts are cooked and cooled, it's time to unleash your creativity. Drizzle or dip each doughnut into the provided chocolate sauce, ensuring they are fully coated. Then, sprinkle rainbow sprinkles or zillionaire sprinkles over the top of the chocolate glaze. Finally, place a few pink and white marshmallows on each doughnut to add a whimsical touch.
Serving and Enjoying:
Arrange the beautifully decorated mini ring doughnuts on a platter or serving tray. They are now ready to be devoured! Serve them at breakfast, as a sweet snack, or as a delightful addition to your dessert spread.
