Today was my last day at work. 8 years of my life, 2 milestone birthdays, many ups and many downs, through it all the only stability was working in a music community centre. It was the only thing I ever stuck at, till now. At first I was sad, but remembering I was moving on to bigger and better things I grew excited, butterflies started fluttering and in the end I walked through the doors of The Soundroom with a big smile on my face. You had a huge influence on my growing up and helped sculpt me into the adult I am today. I’ll miss you!
My working day drew to an end at 12.30pm and my original plan for the rest of the afternoon was for me to attack my garden fence with pretty coloured Ronseal. Unfortunately, while walking home in the blustery autumn air I soon saw the error of my plans and decided to instead, make doughnuts! I bought the most darling little doughnut tin a few days a go and haven’t been able to stop thinking about, looking at or talking about those little sugary treats.
225g plain flour
1tsp vanilla extract
175g caster sugar
1tbsp melted butter
2tsp baking powder
2 large eggs beaten
Preheat oven to 160C and prepare the doughnut pan by brushing a little cooking oil in each hole.
Combine all the ingredients and mix well. Pour mixture into each hole, filling them to around half full. Bake in the centre of the oven for 15 minutes.
Allow to cool, remove from pan and have fun decorating!
