Making donut has been on my list for quite some time; however I’m not someone who adores frying in the kitchen. I like baking because it uses less oil and of course less guilty.
So, I was so excited when I bumped into this doughnut pan last weekend. I suddenly start dreaming making doughnuts – baked, not fried – and I started browsing the recipes.
Oh boy, there are tons of doughnut recipes out there. Okay, perhaps I’m exaggerating too much, but still there are lots of recipes that really confusing. Each recipe has its own ingredients and they all look so good. Some takes over an hour because it contains yeast and that needs to develop well. Well okay, I’m crossing that off my list…perhaps for next time. I’m looking for something practical at this point.
So, I was struck when I found this recipe: 3-ingredients baked doughnut. It’s quick and simple, exactly what I was looking for.
