Gluten free baked mini turkish delight doughnuts

I have made these turkish delight inspired pink rose flavoured doughnuts many times as my Dad loves turkish delight! So for Easter I decided to make them into nests by dipping them in crumbled flakes and adding jelly eggs. I used a mini doughnut pan and a tiny doughnut pan, so I have some mini ones for my Easter table and some tiny ones that I will package up in my decorated egg boxes.

Method

Rose flavoured doughnuts

  1. Preheat oven to 160 deg C, fan assisted (370 deg F)

  2. Lightly spray doughnut pan with non-stick cooking spray

  3. In a bowl, beat the eggs, buttermilk, rose extract, and oil together until you get a foamy mixture

  4. Gradually pour foamy mixture into dry ingredients and stir until mixture is combined

  5. Stir pink food colouring in to mixture, till you have an even colour

  6. Pour mixture into greased doughnut pan until each cavity is 3/4 full

  8. Turn out onto baking rack and leave to cool

Dark chocolate icing

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips on a very low heat in the microwave. Microwave for 1 minute, then check and stir. If you need more time, do it in 10 to 20 seconds intervals, check and stir after each addition of microwave time so chocolate does not burn . Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir the chocolate until completely melted.

  1. Dip the top of each doughnut into melted chocolate, shake off any excess

  2. Dip into bowl of crumbled flakes

  3. Place three eggs in centre
