Baked Sprinkle Doughnuts by Chef Chloe!'s another recipe for Chef Chloe's awesome cookbook!

I've always wanted to make baked doughnuts!!!

In my entire 25 years of life, in my house, there has never been deep-frying, so I'm not very good in the deep-frying technique. I can't imagine what people do with the leftover oil after deep-frying, and what a pain it is to clean not only the equipment, but the whole kitchen afterwards. Of course there are deep-fryers now that won't create an oily kitchen, but how many of you have one?? Haha!

I actually didn't make any glaze for my doughnuts because I made chocolate-flavoured ones. Over here, I decided to share Chef Chloe's original recipe though~! ^^ If you want to make my chocolate-flavoured doughnuts, use 140g all-purpose flour and 30g cocoa powder, and add an additional tablespoon of soymilk to this recipe.

I love the flavour of these doughnuts. There is a lot of nutmeg and it makes these baked beauties so doughnutty~ So if you hate nutmeg, be forewarned about this recipe! But if like me, you love the taste of all lovely spices, I've a feeling you will love these doughnuts too~! ^^

Ingredients (Makes 6 doughnuts):

- 170g all-purpose flour

- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 65g sugar

- 1/2 teaspoon salt

- 170g soymilk
- 42g canola oil
- 42g white or apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla paste or extract

1. Preheat oven to 180℃. Lightly grease your doughnut pan.

2. In a large bowl, sift flour, baking soda, and ground nutmeg.

3. Whisk in sugar and salt.

4. In a separate medium bowl, whisk milk, oil, vinegar and vanilla.

5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk quickly until just combined. Do not overmix.

6. Using a pastry bag or plastic bag with the tip cut, pipe batter into the prepared doughnut pan and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and let sit 5 minutes before unmoulding.

Chocolate Glaze
- 1/8 cup semisweet chocolate chips 
- 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon soymilk
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar

Old-fashioned Glaze
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon soymilk

Optional Toppings:
- rainbow or chocolate sprinkles,
- chopped toasted almonds,
- shredded coconut,
- mini chocolate chips

To make the Chocolate Glaze:
In a double-boiler or microwave, melt the chocolate chips and milk together. Whisk in powdered sugar until smooth. Let sit for 5 to 10 minutes before glazing so that the glaze thickens and any powdered sugar clumps dissolve.

To make the Old-Fashioned Glaze:
In a small bowl, whisk the powdered sugar and milk until smooth.

To assemble doughnuts:
Dip each doughnut into the glaze, covering the top. Twist the doughnut as you remove it from the glaze to give it a nice finish and prevent dripping. Immediately sprinkle the topping onto the glaze and let set.

Hope you like them~! ^^
