Caramilk is still going strong and I thought I’d better give you another recipe before it’s gone for good. If it is going for good that is, I’m still not sure if it’s here to stay or not, so let’s make the best of it while we can. Today I’m bringing you these Baked Caramilk Donuts. They’re an easy baked donut recipe dipped into a lush carmilk ganache.
I love making baked donuts, they’re so easy, you just need a donut baking pan and you’re good to go. My favourite is my Raspberry and White Chocolate Donuts and I also have a Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts recipe that has been very popular.
If you love caramilk as much as me or the next person I also have a delicious Caramilk Chunk Cookie recipe. It’s a soft cookie that’s full of delicious caramilk chunks. I’ve still got a few caramilk recipes brewing in my head so lets see how many of them I can bring you while it’s still available. Let me know if you have any requests!
How do I bake donuts?
Its’ easy really, you just need a donut pan. I’ve seen many options online and in stores. I like the silicon pans as I feel you can get the donuts out more easily. It’s a little tricky to pull the donuts away from the middle so silicon makes this a lot easier. I purchased mine from eBay but there are plenty of options on Amazon (affiliate link).
Can I make baked caramilk donuts if I don’t have a donut pan?
Of course you can! Don’t let the lack of a pan stop you! Just pour the batter into a muffin pan and have muffins instead. I know it’s not the same as a donut, but at least you have an option.
