Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F/160°C/Gas 3. Lightly brush the doughnut pan with cooking oil.
  2. Take a large roomy bowl, and sift the flour, baking powder and salt into it. Add the sugar and give it a stir round to combine.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the milk, beaten egg, olive oil and vanilla extract together and add this to the dry ingredients, mixing thoroughly.
  4. Using a teaspoon carefully fill each of the doughnut cups around ¾ full with the batter. Place in the oven and bake for about 8 minutes, or until firm, but springy to the touch. Cool slightly.
  5. Sprinkle a little caster sugar onto a plate or other flat surface. Turn the doughnuts out and dip them (bottoms first!) into the sugar and Hey Presto fabulous sugar-dusted doughnuts in no time at all!
  6. To make choccy doughnuts

    1. Dip top-side of doughnuts into melted chocolate and allow to set on a wire rack placed over a plate to catch the dribbles.
    2. Whilst the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle with chopped nuts, toasted coconut, 'hundreds and thousands' or crumbled chocolate flakes - just let your imagination run riot!
