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.
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.
