This cute baked doughnuts recipe is brought to you by Miss Frugal who’s discovered a love of baking over the last couple of months.
I’ve been trying to eat much healthier lately and one afternoon, I was upstairs working from home when the most amazing smell started to drift upstairs from the kitchen. When I went to investigate what the smell was, my first thought was that our baking cupboard had exploded all over the counters. 😂
It turned out that Miss Frugal had been busy making me some baked doughnuts as she knew I was trying to be healthy but wanted to make us a mid-afternoon treat.
I bought my doughnut moulds from Amazon ages ago as a set of three – there’s your normal ring doughnut mould, a set of heart-shaped doughnut moulds and one which are kind of a flower shape. I’m sure I bought them with some sort of soap product in mind rather than doughnuts but they were too big for what I had in mind. Funnily enough, they’re the perfect size for doughnuts though. 😂. These are the ones I have although I’m pretty sure mine cost less than this – Doughnut moulds (affiliate link).
Top tip – don’t try and get the doughnuts out of the moulds until they’ve cooled down a little bit. From experience, we can tell you that being impatient doesn’t work and you might end up with a pile of very tasty cake crumbs.
They’re just the prettiest little doughnuts and although I get that they’re absolutely not healthy, they are healthier than a traditional doughnut with them being baked rather than fried and I’ll be honest, I would have eaten one anyway because of the thought behind them.
