The recipes we chose this week are:
Recipe 1 – Thermomix Jam Doughnuts (from Thermomix Baking Blogger)
These doughnuts were recently featured in The Sweets Issue of The 4 Blades Magazine but are also available on Sophia’s blog. These are delicious and you will truly be surprised just how easy making your own classic jam doughnuts from scratch can be. We tested these doughnuts baked and fried. Baking is definitely safer and it allows you to make a whole batch at once, however frying gives you that classic crunch on the outside and soft middle that you’ve come to know and love from jam doughnuts.
Recipe 2 – Grain Free Donuts
These are delicious and soft, it’s hard to believe they are grain free. We also tested these baked and fried… both delicious! If you are using a donut ring baking tray to make these, be sure to only half fill them as the dough will rise. Dusted with cinnamon sugar these are just delightful.
Here are some cool tips from this podcast…
- Be SUPER careful when deep frying on the stove. Oil and flames makes for a dangerous combo. These recipes are much easier with a programmable deep fryer.
- If you are deep frying on the stove, make sure that the oil doesn’t get too hot. If you have a candy thermometer that can help. Sofia recommends between 175-180 degrees Celsius. We found that if by heating the oil on a low heat for 5-10 minutes it made it hot enough, but not too hot.
- Cinnamon sugar is so easy, just get 50g of sugar to 1/4 tsp of cinnamon. Speed 10 / 3 seconds for caster sugar and Speed 10 / 10 seconds for icing (icing sugar is best for dusting the baked doughnuts).
Don’t Forget Dine at Mine
It was Bec’s birthday during the week and we hosted our monthly pot luck dinner with the family. To celebrate we’re donating what we would have spent on dinner out to Camp Quality.
It would be great if you could do the same! Simply host any kind of food party, donate using the link below and ask your guests to do the same!
