Doughnuts are always kids special. As mums we worry a lot giving fried food to the kids .Try this baked doughnut recipe and you will be amazed to see the results. They are better than the shop bought ones in shape, look and also the taste. You can do a larger batch and leave in freezer for future use. If you can cut them in to smaller circles that will be the best.

Adding sugar is the next thing. If you like it more or less you can always adjust it according to the taste.

When you want to check your yeast this method is the best. I am a continuous user of my yeast. If you are not baking bread always needs to check the yeast this way. When you add water to the dough make sure to add less as the egg and the water in yeast is there too.

    1. Thaw it out or in fridge. I put the thawed in microwave for 30 seconds. If not do the chocolate or cinnamon sugar after. You can re bake it for 5 minutes if you don't do chocolate for all at once.
