Almost Guilt-Free Cinnamon Doughnuts

By 16:03:00 , , , , , ,

Oh yea! Finally got the time to sit and share about my latest baking adventure, this time I used two of my most loved machine: Tesco Bread Maker and Philips AirFryer.

This round I attempted to make doughnuts from scratch and to AirFry it to make it a healthier snack for my family.

The Tesco Bread Maker has helped me by creating the proofing and creating a perfect dough for me to work on - the shaping and artwork department...LOL! Next, pop these into the AirFryer to bake to perfection!

Almost Guilt-Free Cinnamon Doughnut

1 cup Milk
40gm Butter 
400gm Plan Flour/All-purpose Flour
1 1/2tsp Instant Yeast
100gm Brown Sugar (Original Recipe: 168gm)
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • Put all the ingredients into the bread maker pan following the order given in your manufacturer's instructions.
  • Set the bread maker for Dough setting and let it run till it ends.
  • Roll dough out until 2cm thick, use a doughnuts cutter to cut the doughnuts. I did make some cartoon doughnuts using cartoon cutter.
  • Preheat the AirFryer at 150°C, each round can fit about 4 doughnuts. Bake at 150°C for 5 minutes or until golden brown.

Now if you are interested in making Cinnamon Sugar Icing for doughnuts, here is the list of ingredients you will need:
  • 35gm Butter (melted)
  • 50gm Castor Sugar (I used blended brown sugar - icing texture)
  • 1tsp Ground Cinnamon
Combine sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and mix it well. Brush doughnuts with the melted butter then dip it in the sugar mixture, shaking off excess if any.
