Golden Doughnuts

You've literally struck gold with these mini doughnuts coated in glamorous edible gold leaf.

Ingredients

Doughnut Batter

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp gold sprinkles

Glaze

  • 3 tbsp whipping cream
  • ½ cup confectioner’s sugar
  • yellow food colouring
  • Edible gold leaf

Steps

Doughnut Batter

  1. Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the butter, sugar, honey, egg and vanilla extract.
  3. Add the buttermilk and mix until combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients and sprinkles and mix until just combined – make sure not to over mix.
  5. Spoon the batter into a piping bag.
  6. Pipe the batter into a greased doughnut pan and bake at 400F for 7 minutes.
  7. Cool for 1 minute in the pan, then flip the pan over to remove the doughnuts and cool completely on a wire rack.!

Glaze

  1. Make the glaze: Whisk together the whipping cream and the confectioner’s sugar and whisk until fully combined.
  2. Dye the glaze a vibrant yellow colour. Dunk each doughnut into the glaze and return to the wire rack.
  3. Cover the entire surface with edible gold leaf sheets, by gently applying with a clean, dry paintbrush. Do not use your fingers, because the gold leaf is sticky and will not transfer onto the doughnuts. Enjoy!
