About this recipe: I have got an electric mini donut machine for my son's birthday and I used an adapted Victorian sponge recipe because I did not fancy the doughnut recipes that came with the machine.

Makes: 6 to 12 doughnuts

  • (4oz) butter
  • (6oz) caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 80g (7 oz) plain flour
  • 25g (1 oz) cornflour
  • 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon mace
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 fl oz milk
  • 4 tablespoons grape seed oil

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Preheat donut maker.
  2. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy and white. Beat in eggs one at a time, then add the vanilla and syrup and spices
  3. Weigh dry ingredients and mix together in a separate bowl, then fold into the butter mixture, alternating with dry ingredients and milk and oil until all incorporated.
  4. Follow instructions for your donut maker to bake the donuts. Using a chopstick helps with handling the donuts.

Decorating tip

You can coat these with icing, glaze, sugar-cinnamon mix, chocolate, sprinkles, etc. I make a glaze from the juice of melted frozen strawberries and sugar (that have been left until their juices come out) mixed with icing sugar. I warm the mixture and dip the donuts.
