Nice for breakfast or treat, Halloween donuts. They are quick and easy to make, taste great and look super scary. Perfect for Halloween!
If you still need inspiration for a Halloween breakfast, lunch, brunch or treat, these donuts are a tip. I bought the donuts ready-made (unfortunately I don't have a donut maker yet), and refurbished them until they looked like this. And that is actually a piece of cake.
And maybe you now wonder how I got all those decorations? Well, everywhere and nowhere. I dive into every supermarket and cookery shop that I come across. And then there is always something hanging on my fingers. And when I'm working out recipes, I dive into my closet. This time I could have made countless donuts, but these eye donuts fit the theme exactly.
It was not that easy to put everything together. The eyes were just a bit too small for the hole in the middle of the donut. So I filled this with red frosting, which I also let run on the white glazed donut. Eyes literally red. I found it a bit boring afterwards so I threw some skulls and bones on it (literally). And then it could win my approval.
It's a good taste!
- 20 grams flour
- 120 ml milk
- 100 grams butter room temperature
- 100 grams powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- red dye
- 200 grams powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 5 donuts
- 1 portion glaze
- 1 portion red frosting
- 5 eyes
- 3 tablespoons bones and skulls
- Pour the milk into a saucepan and add the flour.
- Mix everything well until you have a smooth batter.
- Turn on medium heat and bring the batter to the boil while you keep stirring (because it burns super fast).
- Cook for 5 minutes or until the batter is so thick that when you insert a skewer into the batter it will stand upright and won't fall.
- Turn off the heat, cover with plastic foil and let cool to room temperature.
- In a second bowl, mix the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla extract with a mixer until everything is light and fluffy (about 2 minutes).
- Add the batter spoon to spoon to the butter mixture and mix for another 5 minutes.
- Mix the colorant through the frosting to the desired intensity and cover the dish with plastic foil.
- Place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
- Check the frosting thickness. If it is too thin, add some extra powdered sugar. Store in the refrigerator until use.
- Put the powdered sugar in a bowl and add the water and lemon juice.
- Mix until a smooth paste is formed. When it is still too grainy, add some extra water. If the glaze is too thin, mix some extra powdered sugar through it.
- Put the frosting in a piping bag and the glaze in a bowl.
- Dip the donuts in the glaze and let dry for 5 minutes.
- Fill the middle of the donut with the frosting and draw some blood lines over the glaze.
- Press the eye in the middle and sprinkle the sugar decorations over it.
