Rainbow doughnuts are such a fun way to make doughnuts. These colourful tasty treats are great for adults and children alike. To get the rainbow colours, we recommend using gel colours rather than liquid as the gel colours tend to be brighter and don't lose colour through the bake. Treat your family to rainbow doughnuts this weekend! 

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180ºc (160ºc fan), gas mark 4.

    Combine the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Gradually add the wet ingredients until just combined.

  2. Combine the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Gradually add the wet ingredients until just combined. (Don't add the dyes just yet!)

    • 360g Self raising flour
    • 120g White caster sugar (We like Silver Spoon)
    • ¼tsp Salt
    • 190g Greek yoghurt
    • 1 Egg
    • 80ml Olive oil
    • 80ml Milk
    • 1tsp Vanilla extract (We like Nielsen Massey)
    • 3 squirts Food colouring x6 colours
  3. Use a teaspoon (or piping bag), place the coloured mixtures in small amounts into each cavity of the doughnut pan, until 3/4 full. Swirl a little to acheive a marbled effect, or leave the colours in blocks.

    • 3 squirts of each Food colouring x6 colours
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until the doughnuts have risen. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin for a few minutes before removing to completely cool on a rack. 

  5. To make the icing

    Combine the icing sugar and lemon juice in a bowl. Mix these together until a runny icing has formed. If it's too thick, add more lemon juice, a teaspoon at a time. If it's too runny, add a tea spoon of icing sugar at a time to thicken it. 

    Wait until the doughnuts have completely cooled before decorating them. Once iced, top with sprinkles, or however you like!
