Melt the butter in a small microwavable bowl for 30 seconds. Stir the oil and vanilla into the melted butter. Gradually add this to the egg and sugar mixture, stirring whilst pouring.

Time to add the flour, baking powder and salt. Tip all of it in at once and whisk together until it forms a smooth thick batter.

Transfer all of the batter into a piping bag. This makes it easier to fill the tin!

When filling the donut tin with the batter, don’t fill them right to the top as tempting as it is! These donuts rise incredibly well!

I baked my donuts for about 8 minutes but keep an eye on them when they are in the oven as they can easily be over cooked!

Leave them to cool on a cooling rack while we make the icing.

For the icing, I used about ½ cup of icing sugar and a couple of teaspoons of water. We want the icing to be quite thick so it stays on top of the donut and sets.

I have kept some of the icing white but have also coloured the rest pink. To finish off, just sprinkle a few hundreds and thousands on the top!

I hope you enjoy making these little treats! As you can imagine, they didn’t last very long in my household! Join me next time for another make!
