1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
125 g butter softened
3/4 cup milk
In a large bowl, stir flour, caster sugar, baking powder and salt to combine.
Add butter, egg and milk and beat with an electric beater until mixture is thick, smooth and creamy.
Pre-heat the appliance for 4-5 minutes. Spoon 2 teaspoons of the mixture evenly into each mould. Close the lid.
Cook for 2 minutes or until doughnuts are golden brown and soft to touch.
Carefully remove the hot doughnuts from the doughnut maker and place onto a wire cooling rack
Use butter or margarine.
Brush doughnuts with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar or make a glaze icing – 1 cup icing sugar, 1 teaspoon butter, softened, vanilla, 1 tablespoon hot water and 2 teaspoons cocoa powder. Mix until smooth.
If you don’t have an electric doughnut maker feel free to use a doughnut tray and bake at 180C for approximately 15 minutes.
