Samoa Doughnuts {with step by step .gifs for a doughnut pan}

September 14, 2014 | 17 comments

I think I’ve gone over this. I. HATE. FRYING. THINGS.

I will not do it. Unless it is for something very very important. Maybe. No, not doing it.

I fried something once. Doughnuts. Oil ended up splattering evvvverrryywhere. Mom ended up frying it and I, hiding in my room the rest of the day.

Yes, Mom, you are a lifesaver. Literately, I do not mean the candy.

You, Mom, can fry the rest of the things for us and I will stay in my room. And stuff the stuff in my mouth.

But what if… what if… WHAT IF I WANT DOUGHNUTS???!!! And you’re not home??

Guess I’ll have to live without them? No. I. Need. My. Doughnuts.

I could bake them… But I don’t have a doughnut pan. Until I saw this awesome idea. For a dang dougnut pan. And I made it. And .gifs.

These doughnuts are amazing. Just like they were fried. And covered in coconut, caramel, and chocolate. Omg…

Notes

-If you want to make doughnuts on a regular basis, I suggest you get a doughnut pan. This doughnut pan is a one time fix because you kinda have to throw out all the aluminum foil after you use it. On the bright side, no spraying/oiling the pan and no prying/scraping doughnut pieces off the bottom of the pan!

-If you lightly burn the caramel, just say it’s coffee flavored and nobody will know the difference… Not that I accidentally did it. Seriously, it tastes kinda like coffee. But sweeter and better. (I don’t actually know… I don’t drink coffee)

-Toast the coconut!!! Amazing…

-Pile on the caramel and coconut!!! And do NOT forget to sprinkle on a generous pinch of salt. Makes all the difference.

Okay, so the doughnut pan. Easy peasy…

I’m not writing anymore… Let the .gifs tell the story.

Samoa Doughnuts {with step by step .gifs for a doughnut pan}

These doughnuts are amazing. Just like they were fried. And covered in coconut, caramel, and chocolate.

Doughnuts
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup milk
3 tbsp melted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
Caramel and Coconut Topping
3 tbsp butter
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
2/3 cup coconut
Chocolate Bottom
1 cup chocolate (your choice
Doughnuts

Mix the lemon juice and milk together and let rest for a min. The milk should have curdled.

Mix in the rest of the ingredients and pipe into doughnut pan. Bake at 375 F for 15-20 minutes.

Caramel and Coconut Topping

Over medium heat, combine the sugar and honey. Swirl/swish in the pan until a nice golden. Think supermarket bread colored.

Add in the rest of the ingredients except for coconut. It will bubble and sizzle so make sure you're stirring constantly. Pour into a dish.

Toast the coconut over medium heat until golden. Mix with the caramel mixture.

Chocolate

Melt it.

Assembly

Take a cooled doughnut and spoon on some caramel mixture. Sprinkle with salt. Let rest overnight or at least 2 hours.

Dip the bottom into chocolate and place onto parchment. Repeat. Drizzle on leftover chocolate. Enjoy!

Makes 12-14 small doughnuts, provided you don't eat any during assembly... I ended up with 10 left. Taking pictures makes me hungry!!

    What a great DIY donut pan! I’m happy you were able to get your donut fix without having hot oil fly at you. I’m not a fan of frying for the same reason. It’s amazing how much a tiny drop of oil hurts when it hits your skin. These donuts sounds amazing! I love chocolate, caramel and toasted coconut :-)

      Um, it’s a bit complex to explain on here. Just go search up how to make .gifs in photoshop and you’ll come up with a bunch. They’re really easy and fun to make! 😀

    Je crois que même si ta cuisine est plein de gras après avoir frit les donuts, ça vaut la peine! Ils sont supers Anne! Tu a mangé touts?
