A few days ago I was invited into Coles Supermarkets HQ to check out their new Cook and Dine range. This means you’ll be able to buy your groceries last minute PLUS, woks, baking trays (enamel and gorgeous colours), stainless steel utensils, no-leak containers, non stick fry pans. You name it. There’s 222 products that are now available in-store and they’re SUPER affordable. And great quality.

Anyway, you’re here to lick your lips and read up about the donuts I made from the new Coles donut baking tray (that are actually quite hard to come by).

Here’s the recipe which came directly from Coles and they turned out so well. They’re pretty much donut cakes. Little morsels of amazingness for the kids and well, mums, ’cause I ate nearly the whole tray. Sorry, not sorry.

Baked Doughnuts – makes 12

57g Butter soft unsalted

50g Vegetable oil

99g Sugar

71g Brown Sugar

  • Bake for 10 min
  • Leave in pan for 5 min
  • Remove from the pan and toss in cinnamon sugar (1 tsp cinnamon 4 tblsp caster sugar)

The ICING – I made this up because I like cake-type icing….glaze is a bit light on for me 🙂

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teeny drop pink food dye
  • 1 x cup icing sugar
  • You can add a tiny bit of milk if it’s too thick
  • Add sprinkles or whatever takes your fancy, to the top


You’re welcome!
