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

White Chocolate Icing

  • 100 g White Chocolate finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp thickened cream
  • Candy Canes to decorate

Instructions
 

  • 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 2/3 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.

White Chocolate Icing

  • Put candy canes into zip lock plastic bag and pummel with a rolling pin until crushed.
  • Heat cream up into the microwave until warm (not boiling) and then add finely chopped chocolate, stirring until melted and combined.
  • Dip the top of the donuts into the chocolate mixture, sprinkle over crushed candy canes and place on a cooling tray to set.
