Go nuts for Donuts!!

Or doughnuts. Whichever way you choose to spell it. I don't discriminate when it comes to donuts ;)

I had a minor baking disaster tonight. I had originally planned on this post being about reindeer shaped shortbreads dipped in chocolate. Alas it was not meant to be.

Might I take this moment to stress how important it is to read ahead in a recipe and make sure you're across it before you start. If, say for instance, you're using a recipe that makes TWO dozen, but you only want to make ONE dozen, maybe make sure you've got your quantites correct before you start.

Unfortunately for me, I learnt the hard way, and ended up with a very floury & very dry shortbread mix.

Not to be deterred, I decided to throw it in the bin and make something else.


Chocolate, strawberry and vanilla........YUM!!

And the plus side?? Baked, not fried!!


1/2 cup of plain flour
1/4 cup of sugar
1 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of salt
1 egg
1/4 cup of milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Sift dry ingredients in to a medium bowl. Make a well in the middle and add egg, milk and oil. Mix until combined. If you're not using a donut maker like I did, I would hazard a guess at baking them in a donut tin at 180 for maybe 5 - 8 minutes.
