70g low fat mozzarella

Preheat your oven to 180 deg fan and line the base of a 24cm springform tin with baking paper
Add the chicken strips to a low-medium heat fry pan and brown.
Add in the peppers and onions and brown, then add in the spices and mix through until coated.

I know right!….low calorie doughnuts! O.M.G! Who knew? These are inspired by Tom Kerridge, I just needed to give these a go after seeing him bake these on TV, I have to say they are amazing, the flavour is fabulous and they are extremely light and fluffy too. At ONLY 120 CALORIES per Doughnut……..why would you not?? I have to say I was in heaven this afternoon……my fav Sunday afternoon treat….Fresh Coffee & Doughnuts! (no guilt)
250g Self Raising flour
180ml milk – semi-skimmed
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp chinese five spice
1/2 tsp dried yeast
1 egg beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
Gently heat the milk, butter and vanilla extract in a saucepan on hob. (do not boil)
In a mixer, sift the flour, 1 tbsp sugar (keep 1 tbsp back for finishing), cinnamon, chinese five spice and yeast, mix together.
Add in the egg to the flour and mix then add in the milk mixture and mix until you get a thick batter.
If you have a doughnut tray…..brilliant! If not, (like me) spoon the mixture into a piping bag and grease a baking tray.
Gently pipe round circles like doughnuts onto the tray.
If you have a proving setting on your oven set or place in a warm place and allow to rise for about 2 hours.
Preheat your oven to 210 deg and bake for about 10 minutes.
Remove and allow to cool slightly.
Brush each doughnut with a little water and dip into the remaining sugar. You could also use light brown sugar and maybe add 1 tsp of cinnamon for extra flavour.
Then………devour………..and don’t feel guilty about it! Happy Days!
