If you’re celebrating this up and coming St. Patrick’s Day, here is a treat that will be a real talking point! These super impressive donuts are actually really easy to make, so don’t let the look of these deceive you.

If you don’t have a donut maker, don’t sweat it. They can be simple turned in to mini muffins, iced and served the same way – along with tasting just as amazing!

Method

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon, mix together.
  2. In another bowl thoroughly beat together the olive oil, sugar, grated apple, egg and milk.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to only just combine, (don’t over mix).
  4. Using a donut maker, lightly grease the inside of your donut maker with a little oil and turn on to pre-heat until ready light comes on.
  5. Scope some of the batter in to each donut ring ensuring you do not overfill.
  6. Close the lid and cook until done and donuts are nice and golden and a little crispy on the outside (and nice and fluffy on the inside).
  7. Remove the donuts with a non-stick spatula and set aside on a wire rack to cool.
  8. Repeat until all batter has been used.
  9. While the donuts are cooling, proceed with making your icing.
  10. In a bowl combine the apple juice and salt, mix together.
  11. Add the sugar and a drop or two of the green food colouring. Whisk together until icing is completely smooth. Add a dash or so of juice if required to get the consistency required.
  12. Once the donuts are cool, (room temperature) dip the tops of the donuts in to the green icing mixture and serve.
  13. If you want to go all out, you could also drizzle a little melted white chocolate over the top to take these donuts to the next level.

*Recipe Note: If you do not have a donut maker you can bake as mini muffins.

Simple evenly some batter in to a well-greased mini muffin tray and bake at 180C for approximately 15 – 20 minutes. Shake out on to wire rack, and allow to cool and ice just as you would in the steps above.
