Kids in the Kitchen - Baked Doughnuts

Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen. This week eldest daughter needed to make doughnuts in a hurry. But doughnuts are not made quickly, the name gives it away, they are made of dough and dough needs to be left to rise for at least a couple of hours. Then I remembered that someone had submitted a recipe for baked doughnuts which were a lot quicker. A little search through the Kids in the Kitchen Pinterest Board I found the recipe on Autism Mumma's Blog. They really are quick and easy doughnuts. Eldest Daughter was happy, but then Little Man wanted a go, so we made some too.

Last week on Kids in the Kitchen we were joined by The Brilliant Chef. This is one young man to look out for, I'm sure we'll be eating in one of his restaurants in the future he has so much talent.
We were also joined by the lovely Skye from Mummy Plus Two Girls blog who made some scrummy looking Spider Man Cakes

Thank you for joining in. I can't wait to see what everyone has been cooking this week.

Baked Doughnuts.

From Autism Mumma's Blog;


  • 4oz self-raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2.5 oz of caster sugar
  • 2.5 fl oz of milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tp vanilla extract
  • 1oz melted butter

We made the doughnuts in a muffin tin so they did look more like muffins than doughnuts, but they still had that light fluffy doughnut taste, just less greasy than the deep fried ones.


Preheat oven to 190C/gas mark 5
Grease your muffin tin (or doughnut tin)

Sift together the flour and baking powder in a bowl, stir in the sugar

In another bowl, combine the milk, egg, vanilla extract and melted butter.

Make a well in your flour mixture and add the wet mixture

Mix well until smooth

Pour the mixture into the tin

Bake for 12-14 minutes until risen, golden and firm to the touch.

Decorate...we used a little icing made with icing sugar, pink colouring and water, and sparkle sugar

The Little Man hard at work

 Mixing, mixing, mixing...it's tough but someone has to do it!

 The girls decided to help when it came to decorating.

 The finished product! They look like cakes but taste like doughnuts.

So now it's over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you've cooked,
I'd also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)

  1. I love how they've decorated them with the pink icing and sprinkles. It's so great that you are inspired by the kids in the kitchen recipes yourself as i know we really are too - so we really appreciate your hard work in hosting the linky and keeping the pinterest board updated etc. There have been lots of occasions we've cooked something after seeing you feature it on here. xxx

  2. Thank you for hosting. I bake with my little one most weeks and I have never seen this linky! Will be coming back I'm sure. Those doughnuts look scrummy! :-) xx


Thank you for stopping by, I truly appreciate all comments x

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I've also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me...is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I've loved. If I don't love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It's always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I'll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
