Hi kimifin,

Gina's donut needs the donut-tray(there is a picture of it in the 2nd page) as it's a pouring type but the one you showed is a yeast-based donut which u have to knead, proof and then cut and fry in oil. The texture of these 2 donuts are also different.

I tried the recipe but each time, the core seem to be very dense compared to the outside which is very fluffy when it's done. Any idea what could be the problem? Tks very much.

Just tried my second attempt on this after modifying the recipe, but not too sure if my texture is right.

Does the doughnuts stick to the pan? Mine does even after I've oiled the pan and I have a bit of difficulty removing them. Does that mean my batter is too liquid? Is there any good way to prevent the doughnuts from sticking to the pan?

After you butter the pan, try dusting some flour before you put in the dough. I tried that method & it didn't stick to the pan.

I don't have any recipe, but I just use things like peanut butter, chocolate breadspread, blueberry pie fillings, fruits as the topping. Don't like anything too sweet and artificial.

Thanks, Nora. Will try that the next round and see if my amended recipe is still ok.

Hi Gina

I ve tried baked this recipe on Sun but the donuts came out really hard n chewy n the bottom has the kind of wet look like uncook. I would like to try again, pls advise on the following :-

1. what type of milk must I use? cos I used evaporation milk, is it tis reason cos the donuts to bcome so hard?
2. melted butter - i need to microwave/cook to melt the butter or i can just leave it to "melt" naturally?
3. Mix butter, eggs and milk together - do I need to beat them until certain stage or just beat to mix them well will do?

Sorry for so many questions as I am new in baking Embarassed

Many thanks in advance.

1. Don't substitute the milk with a different kind. You can subs with full cream milk or UHT milk only. I don't know how Evaporated milk will affect the texture of the donut. Coz I never try.
2. Melted butter, leaving it out to melt naturally. No need to melt over fire or microwave.
3. Just mix using a spatula and mixing bowl. No need cake mixer.
