Home baked doughnuts

Traditionally, doughnuts are deep fried, but there's no harm in baking them, right? As I am a firm believer of "tradition says be different" I came across a baked doughnuts recipe on the internet, made some changes & baked them at home. Some people use buttermilk instead of milk. Feel free to substitute milk from my recipe with buttermilk. My 3½ y.o son and K are big fans of eating the doughnuts (also spelled as donuts). Since these are baked one's, these taste similar to a cake. A perfect snack for kiddos lunch box.

(for doughnuts)
1 cup wheat flour
3 tsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
½ cup milk
1 egg
1 tsp vanillaessence
2 tsp vegetable oil
for chocolate coating
1 cup of choco chips.
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Sieve the wheat flour & mix the dry ingredients (wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt) in a bowl.
In a separate bowl beat egg until fluffy, add the vanilla essence, oil & the milk beat again for a minute.
Add the dry ingredients to this egg mixture, fold well until it becomes into a smooth batter.
Spoon this batter into doughnut pan. Fill only ½ of the doughnut pan with the batter, because the doughnuts will rise after they get baked.
Bake in the oven for 12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted come out clean.

how to make the chocolate coating?
Melt chocolate in a double boiler. Dunk the doughnuts into the melted chocolate to evenly coat the chocolate over the doughnut by making a swirl. Over the chocolate add sprinklers of your choice. Keep on a wire rack to cool and the chocolate to harden.
Yeilds: 12 doughnuts
Double boiler method
  1. Add water to a pot and over it keep another pot with choco chips in it
  2. See to it that the water from the lower pot doesn't touch the pot placed above it.
  3. When the water becomes hot (don't bring it to a boil), the choco chips will start melting, stir it with a spoon to evenly melt all the choco chips.
  4. Switch off the flame, use the same process to melt more chocolate if required.
