Ingredients
  

Vanilla bean donuts

  • 70 g butter softened
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 vanilla bean scraped
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • cups plain flour

Mocha icing

  • 90 g dark chocolate chips
  • 30 g unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp golden syrup
  • 2 tsp brewed coffee

Instructions
 

Vanilla bean donuts

  • Preheat oven to 160°C and grease your donut pan with flavourless oil OR turn on your donut maker (you won't need any oil if you use the latter).
  • Cream together the butter and sugar in a medium bowl until fluffy. Add in the egg, milk, and vanilla and mix until just combined. The mixture may look curdled but the dry ingredients will pull it together.
  • Add in the baking powder and flour and stir until just combined.
  • Transfer mixture to a medium zip lock bag and cut the corner tip cut off. Pipe the mixture into the donut pans until each is approximately ⅔ full.
  • If using a donut pan, bake in the oven for around 10 minutes until lightly golden brown. If using a mini donut maker, bake for 2-3 minutes.
  • Allow donuts to cool completely before decorating.

Mocha icing

  • Place chocolate, butter, golden syrup and coffee in a bowl.
  • Melt in 20 second bursts in the microwave, stirring after each time until completely melted.
  • Dip the tops of the donuts into the chocolate glaze and then place on a wire rack.
  • Sprinkle the top of each donut with cocoa nibs or chocolate sprinkles.
