Gina, I tried your recipe twice but yield the same result. The batter isn't liquid at all, it's dry and more like a pliable dough. I couldn't scoop into the donut tray but more had to use a spatula to scrap the dough into it. I followed the recipe to the T. Any advice?

I did this recipe 2x too. both times it was liquidy. the only thing I can think of is ..maybe its the flour..I can't remember if its too old that it absorbs more liquid or when its very fresh flour that it absorbs less liquid.

I took this picture but didn't upload it thinking people would understand how liquidy it should look like.

But because the tray was tiny, I cannot pour in the batter. Had to use a tea spoon to scoop it, drop in.

Oh mine sure wasn't like that, it's was like a lumpy dough. I won't even call it batter cos it doesn't slide the spoon, I had to use a spatula to scrap the "dough" down to the tray. The first time I make it, I thought it's the baking powder, I went to buy another bottle. And the flour I used, it's Prima from a fresh new pack. Probably I will open another packet to try. I'm using HL low fat milk, is it becos of that?

After baking, the top and inside isn't soft at all. It's like eating a bread, pretty compact inside.

When you mix the dry and wet ingredients together, I assume we don't need a mixer, right?

Thanks very much for your help!

biscuit

its too slimy to form into a dough. my friend told me this recipe is meant for tray or cupcake trays. because its mean to be wet. impossible for roll out.

oh..I also use low fat milk. That's all I have at home too. love u

from start to end(means at the stage to pour in the batter)..whole process is only 5 mins.

Gina, I did a 3rd time and there is too little liquid to form into a batter. I did half of the recipe and use 1/2 egg and in the end I add one whole egg to get the "falling" batter.

I dun understand why also so how?

Not sure if anyone tried this?

Hi Biscuit,

I got the same result as you but I add in more milk till the batter become sticky. Yes, I still need to scoop them onto the tray.


My result:-







Gina, how does the texture feels like after baking? Mine is not as soft as you described. But I will definitely do this again. I love it.

hi everyone

I rang up my friend. he says the recipe uses large eggs. maybe that is how mine was wetter? Cheeky grin in any case, he suggested adding an extra 50ml of milk to the existing recipe.

the texture was spongey due to the baking powder.

I think it's not a problem. The type of tray use only gives it the shape. Taste is till the same Very Happy

Hi Gina

I've tried to bake the mini donuts using your recipe last night. Can I check with you whether it is 1tbsp or 1tsp of baking powder. I have followed the recipe using 1 thbsp of baking powder and although the dounts came out beautifully, the taste was bitter and I had to throw away the whole lot.

shirley

thanks for trying out using Top flour. I think I will do the same too. decorating skills need practice. the pretty ones you see that I have done are the only ones good enough to see. the rest also ugly. see stars

I used a measuring spoon. I tried baking them again using only 1 tsp of baking powder. The donuts tasted much better and they raised in the same way as the 1st batch with 1 tbsp of baking powder.

Hello everybody,

I bought a mini doughnut silicon mould recently and I was just wondering whether is the temperature to bake still the same as the one from the recipe?

Regards...May island

Hi kimifin
Those shape are made by using a doughnut cutter as in the image below:

http://www.coppergifts.com/productcart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=4&idproduct=2212

You can also use two round cutters, one big & another smaller one to make the center hole. Hope this info was helpful. Very Happy
