F1 Donuts

Ok, I nicknamed this F1 Donuts as I've made this as a surprise for the boys, when we watch the night race from Singapore tomorrow around 2pm, Sweden time. This is going to my first time watching it from Europe and also the first time I used this mini donuts pan I got from CK Tang. I was surfing around for a good recipe and came across this one from Beachlover's blog, but I made some modifications accordingly for my oven, and here's wishing Singapore a successful 2009 F1 event!

Makes about 36 mini donuts

2 mixing bowls
Mini donuts baking pan

250g flour
110g sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
125ml milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 teaspoon oil
4 tablespoon vanilla yogurt (or ordinary one, I just happen to have them for breakfast)
100g milk chocolate bar, for dipping the donuts
1. Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl (flour, sugar, baking powder) and all the wet ingredients in another bowl (eggs, milk, vanilla extract, oil, yoghurt).
2. Pour in the wet ingredients gradually into the dry mix; you want to avoid a lumpy batter. The final consistency should be a thick and smooth mixture.
3. Butter the mould with a brush and scoop 1 tablespoon into each individual mould, they should be only half filled, so that your donut will have a hole in the middle.

4. Put the donuts into a pre-heated oven of about 165-170 degrees Celsius, top rack for about 15 minutes. This is to ensure it will brown evenly; you may need to adjust the rack accordingly, and watch the donuts after 10 minutes.
5. The final product should be spongy, like a cake. Let it cool while you melt about 100g of milk chocolate.
6. Dip each donut only half way (well, if you want it to be a full chocolate covered donut, just dunk it all in, but you will probably need more melted chocolate) and let it cool in a large flat cookie tray, making sure each donut does not touch each other.

7. If you feel like putting some icing instead, mix icing sugar and milk to get a thick glaze and add coloring accordingly. Do the same like dipping into the melted chocolate.
8. For assembling into the F1 shape, just use long wooden sticks and thread through accordingly.
