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)

    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
