Hine’s Easter doughnuts . . . and cute cake pops

Dry ingredients

2 cups flour

¾ cup sugar

3 tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

Wet ingredients

1 egg

1 cup milk (I have used oat milk)

¼ cup vegetable oil

1 tsp vanilla essence

Toppings / Filling

1 packet of mini Easter eggs or chocolate buttons for decorating

Your choice of filling

' Optional:

Food colouring


Heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

In a medium-size bowl, sift all the dry ingredients together.

In a separate bowl put together all the wet ingredients and mix them well.

Add the wet ingredients to your dry ingredients and stir them together into a nice smooth batter.

' Optional steps:

Separate batter into even amounts.

Add 1 drop of food colouring to one batch of batter and mix well.

Repeat this previous step for all the colours you want.

Method continued

Spoon the batter into cake pops mould or muffin tins.

Pop your filling in the middle or your toppings on top.

Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes.

You can test to see if they are cooked by inserting a skewer into the middle — it should come out with crumbs. If it comes out with batter just bake them for another 5 minutes.
