Gudetama Oreo Truffle Doughnuts




It's been around 2 weeks since I've baked. January exams are near again here in the UK, and so I've been concentrating on revision and most importantly, gaining that extra layer of fat for insulation for the winter. I hope you've all had a good christmas with your family and friends, and let's bring on 2016!

I thought it's about time I made these cute mini doughnuts. They don't take much time to make, and majority of the time will be spent on preparing the Oreo truffles.

Click here to the link of my video which takes you through the whole process.

Makes: 22-24 doughnuts     Overall time: under an hour

INGREDIENTS

for the Doughnuts:
➥ 200g Plain flour
➥ 125g Caster sugar
➥ An Egg
➥ 125ml Whole milk
➥ 1 tsp Vanilla extract
➥ 50g Unsalted Butter, melted
➥ 2 tsp Baking powder

for the Decorations:
➥ 2 x Bars of white chocolate (approx. 250g)
➥ 1 x packet of Oreo cookies
➥ 50g Cream cheese
➥ 1 tsp Vanilla extract
➥ Orange gel colouring


METHOD

1. First make the oreo truffles by adding crushed oreo cookies and cream cheese into a bowl. You can blend the oreos into crumbs by using a food processor or by hand with a rolling pin. Add in the vanilla extract and blend all the ingredients together.

2. Once combined, roll out the dough into 1/2 inch balls and place them on a baking tray. Place them in the freezer for 20 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, proceed to making the doughnuts. Place all the ingredients into a bowl and blend until everything is smooth. Lightly oil the doughnut maker, pipe the mixture in each ring and close the lid.

4. Once your doughnuts are cooked, they should be a golden brown. Leave them on the side to cool down.

5. Check your oreo truffles. Once frozen, melt the white chocolate in 30 seconds in the microwave or with a saucepan, divide the chocolate into two bowls and dye one bowl a light orange. Dip each truffle in the orange chocolate, ensuring the whole truffle is covered before placing it back onto the tray to set. Once you have finished coating all the truffles, place them back in the freezer for around 10 minutes to set.

6. When the chocolate is set, place one truffle on each doughnut. You can now draw on the faces.

7. Serve to your friends and family!
