Halloween Donuts:

With Halloween just around the corner, we wanted to do a little bit of halloween inspired baking to curb out sweet craving. So we decided to make some super simple halloween donuts using our waffle/donut maker and pancake mix. We know there are other really great recipes out there that make their own donut mixtures but… we were feeling extra lazy and pancake mix seemed to be the easiest option and these take just as good as store bought donuts! Simple, delicious and gone in one bite. These donuts turned out super cute, fluffy and the balance of icing and donut is not too sweet either. Bear in mind that we did use a waffle/ donut maker so we can’t guarantee that using an oven will bring the same results but, feel free to try making the yourself.

Recipe:

110g Pancake mix 

50g milk 

1/2 egg 

1/8tsp baking soda 

1/8 baking powder. 

Method: 
1) Measure 110g of Pancake mix. 
2) Mix in 50g milk, 25g first until the batter is smooth and then add the
 remaining 25g of milk. 
3) When the batter is smooth add in 1/2 an beaten egg and mix. 
4) preheat your waffle/donut maker. 
5) put in the remaining baking soda and baking powder and allow the mixture 
   to sit for 2-3 minutes or until the mixture is slightly bubbly. 
6) spray or brush butter onto the waffle/donut maker. Pour in the donut 
   mixture into the moulds and bake for 7-10 minutes or until a toothpick 
   inserted in the middle comes out clean or if the donut has a slightly 
   crispy exterior

A delicious Pesto and Parmasan Bread

GetFileAttachment-1.jpgA delicious recipe for a pesto and parmasan bread. Lately, I have been obsessed with pesto and I really wanted to try a combination of my 3 loves. Bread, pesto and cheese! I am going to be completely honest, it is delicious! The first time I tried this, I was hooked and kept making it. So, I thought why not share this recipe with you guys. So, here it is…

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups flour (plus extra for dusting the work surface)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp yeast
  • ~1/2 cup pesto
  • 2-3 tbsp grated parmesan

Method

1. Pour warm water in the bowl and sprinkle in the yeast. Mix it once.

2. Let sit 10 minutes or until the yeast is frothy or has swell

3. Add the flour, oil, and salt into a bowl and mix it on a low setting.

4. Knead the dough for 5 minutes. So, the dough is smooth and elastic. knead for another  2 minutes, the dough should completely clean the bottom and sides of the bowl or surface. If the dough is still sticking to the bowl or your surface add additional flour, one spoonful at a time until it doesn’t stick.

5. Form the dough into a smooth ball and wrap it in cling film and let rise until doubled (it should be around 1 hour)

6. Preheat the oven to 200 celsius.

7. Lightly flour your work surface.

8. Gently stretch the dough into a rectangle like shape.

9.  Use a rolling pin and roll it into a rectangle. It should be no thicker than half a centimetre, but it can’t be to thin or the dough will rip apart.

10. Spoon and spread the pesto over top and sprinkle your parmasan cheese. It’s best to have a border of half an inch around the edges.

11. Roll one of the longest sides. Until it looks like a swiss role and add a little bit of water to the end to help it stick.

12.Cut your rolled dough in half. So, now you have to pieces, and cut the 2 piece again in half. So, now you have four piece and repeat this once more until you have 8 pieces.

13. Place them into a foil square tin and put it in the oven for 25 mins or until the top of the bread has turned golden.

Then eat it!!

That is it! I hope you enjoy it. It is really delicious and savory. So, I hope you try it.
