How to make sweet & savoury doughnuts in a doughnut maker

A few weeks ago I was given a doughnut maker by iwoot.com to review. To be absolutely precise it is actually a 3 in 1 sweet treat maker, but it was its doughnut making abilities that really called to me. I’m not sure quite what it is about doughnuts, but everyone in my family loves them and if you make them at home, surely they are only half as bad as if you buy them?

How to make mini doughnuts at home

Well actually it’s even better than that, cause the recipes I came up with really have a minimal amount of bad stuff in them and they are delicious too. Both sweet and savoury mixes start from the same dough mix…

230g self-raising flour
1tsp baking powder
100g butter

I divided the mixture and then added diffferent flavouring to each half…

apple and cinamon doughnuts

For the sweet I added one Bramley apple which I had pureed with about a teaspoon of water in a saucepan on the hob, a healthy scattering of cinammon and about 50g of sugar.


For the bacon and cheese doughuts (don’t know them till you have tried them!) I added about 6 rashers of pre-cooked bacon and 120g of swiss cheese. Both mixtures cook in about six minutes and were a big hit with everyone from teens to grown-ups. You can see how the doughnut maker works and follow along with the recipe below..

I would love to know what you think of the flavours and if anyone has a doughnut maker already?

Yummy, the cinnamon apple doughnuts sound delicious! I’ve never had a savoury doughnut before, but I bet they were lovely too! 🙂 x

Shhh.. don’t tell anyone, but it’s my sister’s kitchen! Heck of a lot better than an Army one though isn’t it?! 🙂

I love bacon in my doughnuts and pancakes! This looks so promising and will definitely try this! I don’t have that donut maker tho. #pocolo

I love your vlog Clare – it is fab! Your sisters kitchen is gorgeous – as is that doughnut maker, I didn’t realise such a thing existed!! Thank you for linking to #PoCoLo x

Lovely video, great kitchen (I see it’s borrowed I need to convince a friend to let me do the same as mine is like a postage stamp!!) Can I ask did you have someone helping you with filming or did you just keep re setting with a tripod?
P.S I am now starving and only a doughnut will do!

claremansell@mac.com January 25, 2015 - 9:46 am

My sister helped me filming this one. The first half was shot on a tripod and the second half was hand-held. It’s a constant learning curve and I’m not sure we’ve nailed it yet. 🙂

Oh these doughnuts look so cute! You can’t beat warm doughnuts from a fair so would be great to recreate at home #TastyTuesdays

I had never even thought about savoury doughnuts. These don’t sound bad for you at all… unlike krispy kreme x

Steph @MisplacedBrit January 28, 2015 - 9:54 am

I didn’t even know that there was such a thing as a doughnut maker!! …Yep, there’d have to be a savory variation or that would be dangerous in my kitchen 😉

Never tried a donut maker but want to know, although like Steph says, it could be dangerous! Thanks for linking up to #tastytuesdays
