Giant Donut Cake Recipe
This is one of the best looking cakes I have ever made! Instant wow factor, ridiculously easy to make, tastes amazing! I knew as soon as I saw the Giant Donut Mould that I had to try it, they are available in my shop so you can try them too!
The mould actually has three parts – so can choose to make the donut with a hollow middle and fill with jam, cream, ganache, the list is endless. I went for simple jam!
You will need:
- 1 Giant Donut Baking Mould – Available from my shop 🙂
- 390g Plain Flour
- 2 Tsp Baking Powder
- 1 1/2 Tsp Salt
- 235ml Milk
- 1 1/2 Tsp vanilla extract
- 225g Unsalted Butter or Margarine
- 390g Caster Sugar
- 4 Eggs
- 1 Jar Strawberry / Raspberry Jam
- 200g Icing Sugar
- Few Drops Red Food Colouring
- Sprinkles for decorating
Start by preheating the oven to 190 degrees and rinse the Silicone Pan before, drying thoroughly. Cream your Butter and Sugar with a mixer until creamy and smooth, then add the eggs (one at a time) whilst still mixing.
You will now need two separate bowls. Sift together the Plain Flour, Baking Powder & Salt into one bowl, and the Milk and Vanilla into another.
Now alternate adding the Flour Mixture and the Milk Mixture to the Butter and Sugar Mixture a little at a time until completely combined.
Divide the Cake Mixture between the pans and fill to the max top fill line if making a normal donut, or the lower fill line if you are making a filled donut. Tap them gently on the work surface to get rid of any air bubbles then transfer to the oven and bake for approx 40 mins.
If making the filled donut, you will need the third part of the mould and will need to place on top of one of the bases. This will cook the cake with a large indent that you can later fill with Jam or Cream etc.
Remove the Cakes form the oven and the Baking Moulds then set on a cooling rack.
You can see the shape of the indent for the jam / cream in this half!
Once the cakes are cool, place the side with the indent upside flat on a surface and fill the indent with Jam or a filling of your choice! If you are making a normal donut you can still spread a layer of filling between the halves to fill them together.
Now place the other donut half on top and press down lightly to secure together.
To make your Icing, just mix the Icing Sugar with water (a teaspoon at a time) until you have a runny consistency. Add a few drops of Red Food Colouring to make a pink colour.
Drizzle the Pink Icing all over the top of the Cake so it runs down the sides, then pour over your sprinkles and leave to set before serving!
