These bitesize doughnuts are so moreish you will want to eat them all! Baked in the oven these are really simple to make and great fun to decorate, so get the whole family involved.


  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C (140°C, gas mark 3) Lightly brush the mini doughnut tin with oil or melted butter to prevent the doughnuts from sticking.

  2. In a bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar until fully incorporated.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, melted butter, egg and vanilla bean paste.

  4. Make a well in the flour bowl and gradually pour in the liquid. Mix together to form a batter.

  5. Using a teaspoon carefully spoon the mixture into each of the holes in the doughnut tin. Only fill 3/4 full as the mixture will puff up when baked.

  6. Bake in the oven for approximately 8 minutes or until golden in colour. Remove from the oven and leave to stand for a few minutes.

  7. To remove the doughnuts from the tin, flip the tin over and gently tap the base. Alternatively, carefully loosen the doughnuts from the tin by running a blunt knife around the outer rim.

  8. To make the icing, place the fondant icing sugar in a large bowl (or split into seperate bowls if making a range of different colours) add a few drops of water and a drop of food colouring or flavour extract and mix until you reach a dipping consistency. If you make this too runny add a bit more icing sugar to thicken.

  9. If you want to make chocolate icing, follow the above steps, adding cocoa powder and omitting the food colouring (you may need to add a touch more liquid)

  10. Decorate with sprinkles and allow the icing to set before serving (if you can wait that long!)
