Spray your donut trays lightly or even better wipe with butter 🙂 or make some extra melted butter and brush on

You can either pour into a plastic bag and snip end and pour around the donut trays OR you can just use a tall jug with spout which is what I did – save the plastic ! If any of the mix goes across the top in the middle of the donut just wipe away .

Fill about 2/3rds of the way up Makes between 20 and 24

Place in preheated 180degree oven for around 8-9 minutes until donut springs back or a skewer comes out clean.

These are delicious plain 🙂 They are light and fluffy. Or you can use a lovely Maple Glaze.

NOTES :  I made the Icing Sugar today from Billingtons Caster Sugar you can see how white it is from a brown coloured sugar – but I didn’t like the taste – Billingtons Caster Sugar is reportedly better than regular white sugar.
I’m not a big sugar person I just don’t like it . I prefer Things like Maple Syrup , Rice Malt Syrup , Dates etc for sweeteners but sometimes Sugar is best for recipes.
Personally for me I would just dip the tops in melted chocolate 🙂
