    Good thing I took them out of the oven then :p Pictures can be deceiving, because I thought yours looked crispy!

    They were good though - like biting into a cloud! :)

    This is what it says below the photo in my recipe.

    Deep fried donuts they are definitely not, but if you think of them as donut shaped cakes, AMAZING :)


    :)

    that's why I baked mine 2 minutes more...I ate some of them later and toasted them. Nice and crunchy - great with pb powder and sliced banana:)

    Mine came out excellent using that exact recipe. I thought they had a great texture! They were light and airy and delicious. I was very careful to maintain the volume in the batter, used a mini donut pan, and cooked them a few minutes longer.

    Great to hear. Yes, the timing will all depend on your own oven. I am making mine with Breville Smart oven Pro.

    Made a batch with orange extract and cinnamon in the batter and one serving of low sugar orange marmalade in the centers when they came out of the oven (25 extra calories for tons of extra sweetness and flavor!)
  • Sallyw2004Sallyw2004 Posts: 117Member Member Posts: 117Member Member
    The one serving of marmalade was split between all 12 mini donuts and it was the perfect amount

    I am guessing for 25cal the serving is a TBSP. You split that up into 12 muffins???? wow lol :)

    Your recipe makes 12 perfect mini donuts. The weighted single serving size of the jam, which is the equivalent of a TBSP, surprisingly fills the 12 holes (not super generously) and adds a nice punch of sweetness and flavor. It’s definitely a delicate recipe, but yields great results.

    I know that and thank you. I was just impressed that you managed to spread that 1tbsp into 12 donuts lol. If that was me I would just do a tbsp for a donut haha :) but I am lazy sometimes.

    Ohhhhhhhhh great idea with the filling BTW.

    Suggestion....... look into Walden Farms spreads. I love using them and no I dont care what sort of magic is involved.

    Where do you buy your Walden products? (I'm in Canada) I bought a bottle of the pancake syrup from walmart in the states via instore pickup last time I went - it was $3! Now I look and it's something like $7 and it's out of stock - kicking myself for not ordering more last time! And the spreads look intriguing! And yeah, I don't want to know the magic involved LOL

    For the Americans - are there any stores that sell this IN the store? I'm going back over shopping shortly and thought I'd just grab some if I can find it!

    lowcarb.ca for online with everything available (my preference cause I also pick up other things)

    Health food store at Heartland (mavis / britannia)

    Metro (some carry it)

    I like to whip the egg whites til quite firm and then add 1/2 tsp. of Xanthum Gum, continue to whip til ensuring mixture is really firm.

    Add in sifted dry ingredients (gently folded in).
    I also bake them for 12 minutes. I like them crispy - I toast them too when they soften, as I rarely eat them all in one sitting.

    Adding the Gum to the whites really thicken and puff them up yielding in a few more doughnuts. I get 8 doughnuts from one recipe amount.

    sorry for the blurry pic...

    Walden Farms pancake syrup is a staple for me. I use it in all sorts of things, sweet and savory. I used to only use real maple syrup, but it's too calorie dense and high sugar to fit into my calorie goals on a regular basis. It's easy to find Walden Farms in many stores where I live and I can find it on sale for around $3.00 a bottle.
