How many of you are doughnut fans? Haha I have to admit, I truly am 7 years back!! When the donut craze hit our country, I actually queued close to 4 hours for 2 dozen doughnuts! Incredible right? After that, I never touched donuts again.
Not because of my fear of queuing but after I read somewhere that a single donut had the same amount of calories as a meal. Shocking to some but it is actually true. This year, I decided to make some homemade donuts so I can actually control what went in it. These donuts were baked so non of that greasy fried stuff. I baked these mini doughnuts in my handy 8 cavity Silicon Doughnut pan. Unmolding the donuts from the pan was a breeze. Thank Gawd for the non stick silicon that pops these little cuties right out.
As for donuts, I opted for a Thai Tea Flavor Doughnut! I’m such a big fan of Thai tea these few days that incorporating them into my bakes was one of my New Year Goals and so here we go!! Recipe is adapted from BobsRedMill. The only change to the recipe was to infuse the milk with some Thai Tea leaves. These doughnuts were baked using Bob’s Gluten Free 1-1 Baking flour ( I swear i love this flour more than anything). The doughnut turned out beautifully. Fluffy, Soft and moist.
