Its time for some fusion dessert today and whats better than everyone’s favourite Doughnuts! Are you not nuts about doughnuts? Well I definitely am and also know that most of you are so I fused our humble motichoor with the extravagant doughnuts which landed up as a perfect Diwali dessert. The Motichoor Doughnut Cake (how to make motichoor doughnut cake) is probably one of my best creations and you have to try it out once to believe it.
Like the name says these are not the authentic doughnuts, they are actually cake batter baked in a doughnut pan and hence the name doughnut cake. Its almost Diwali and being a food blogger there are so many ideas that flood your mind, amongst the turmoil of ideas this was best of the lot. I executed it immediately and it turned out awesome. Adding these to your Diwali dessert table will not only glam up the table but also leave you with applauds. Join me for full recipe below:
- All purpose flour - 1½ cups
- Sugar - ½ cup
- Baking Powder - 1 tsp
- Baking Soda - ½ tsp
- Curd/Yoghurt - ½ cup
- Milk - ½ cup
- Vegetable/Canola Oil - ½ cup
- Vanilla Extract - ½ tsp
- Crushed motichoor laddoos - 4
- For the sugar glaze:
- Sugar - 4 tbsp
- Water - 2 tbsp
- Orange food colour - few drops
- To garnish - crush motichoor laddoos
- Preheat oven at 180 degree celsius.
- Line a doughnut shaped mould, grease it well if using a non stick pan.
- In a bowl sift dry ingredients, flour, baking powder, baking soda, mix well and keep aside.
- Take a mixing bowl, add in oil, sugar, curd, milk, vanilla extract and mix well using a hand whisk or electric beater.
- Now, fold in the dry mixture into the wet mixture little by little, use a spatula to fold in, do not over mix.
- At last add in the crushed motichoor laddoos and fold in gently.
- Once batter is ready, transfer it into the lined pan and bake for around 15 minutes at 180 degree celsius or until a skewer inserted in the cake comes out clean.
- When the cake is done, let it cool for 10 mins within the pan, then demould the cake and let it cool fully on a wire rack.
- For the sugar glaze, heat a thick bottomed pan on low, add sugar and water and let the sugar caramelize to light golden colour.
- Add the orange food colour and mix well. Your glaze is ready.
- Once the doughnut cakes are done and cooled fully, dip them in the glaze and coat well. Repeat with all.
- To finish, sprinkle some crushed motichoor laddoos from top and serve.
