To Decorate your sweet donuts
Sweet doughnuts can be transformed by dipping in different coatings
Plain caster sugar is quick and easy but can be made extra special by adding the grated rind of a lemon or orange about an hour before it is needed.
For a finer finish icing sugar can easily be flavoured with a variety of spices. To every 50g/2 ozs of icing sugar add 1 x 15ml/1 teaspoon of spice such as cinnamon nutmeg mixed spice or ginger
For a chocolate dust add 2 x 5 mkl spoons (2 teaspoons) of cocoa to 50g/2 ozs icing sugar
Mix icing sugar with water to make a fairly stiff spreadable glace icing and spoon over the doughnuts. Decorate with glace fruites, edible cake decorations, chocolate strands or chopped nuts or cover teh whole doughnut with a thinner glace icing and roll in hundreds and thousands or sugared strands
Dip cooked doughnuts quickly in melted chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate plain or milk chocolate is good and serve the doughnuts with ice cream
Sprinkle chocolate coated doughnuts with finely chopped nuts or drizzle white chocolate onto a plain chocolate coated doughnut and vice versa
Warm 2 x 15 ml spoons (2 tablespoons) of jam, golden syrup or honey and use to brush over hot doughnuts this is best for plain versions as a change from caster sugar.
