Red Wine Baked Doughnut Recipe

Cook Time: 10 minutes
Author: Sarah Sibley


For the doughnuts

  • 75 g Self-Raising Four
  • 60 g Caster Sugar
  • 20 ml Rapeseed Oil
  • 60 ml Red Wine
  • 2 x Eggs

For the sugar coating

  • 50 g Caster Sugar
  • 30 g Butter


  • Preheat oven to 325°F / 160°C / 140°Fan / Gas 3.
  • Grease a doughnut tin thoroughly.
  • Place the flour & sugar into a mixing bowl and stir together.
  • In a separate jug, place the beaten eggs, oil & wine whisk together.
  • Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients & mix thoroughly.
  • Add a few drops of red or burgundy gel food colouring to enhance the red wine colour and mix thoroughly.
  • Finally, transfer the mixture back into the jug and carefully pour it into the tin, making sure each of the cups is filled to around ¾ full.
  • Bake for aprox 10 minutes until firm, but springy to the touch.
  • Whilst the doughnuts are in the oven, melt the butter in a cup or small bowl and place the sugar for the coating in a bowl.
  • As soon as the doughnuts come out of the oven, carefully loosen them from the tin using a spoon but leave them in there.
  • Using a pastry brush, brush all of the doughnuts with the melted butter and then flip them over and do the same to the other side of them.
  • Finally take each one of the doughnuts and toss them around in the bowl of sugar until they are completely covered.
  • They can then either be served straight away whilst still hot or be left to cool and served cold.
