Ingredients
  

Donuts

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

Lemon Cream Cheese glaze

Instructions
 

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.

Lemon Cream Cheese glaze

  • Stir cream cheese and icing sugar together until mixed, and then add milk slowly until you have a thick glaze. Add a drop of pink food dye and flavouring and stir until combined.
  • Dip the top of the donuts into the glaze, sprinkle over decorations and place on a cooling tray to set.
