Method

First make the salted caramel sauce.

Place the muscovado sugar, butter and salt into a saucepan and heat gently until the sugar has melted – stirring all the time.

Add the cream and stir through until combined. Bring to boil and heat for 3 minutes until the sauce thickens again stirring all the time.  Transfer to a glass bowl and refrigerate for 2 hours.

For the doughnuts.
Preheat the oven to 325°F/160°C/Gas 3. Spray the doughnut pan with Wilton Bake Easy Spray

Take a large bowl, and sift the flour, baking powder and salt into it. Add the sugar and stir to combine.

In a separate bowl, whisk the milk, beaten egg, melted butter and Wilton vanilla extract together and add this to the dry ingredients, mixing thoroughly.

Using a teaspoon fill each of the doughnut cups around ¾ full with the batter. (Do not overfill otherwise the doughnuts won’t have holes!)

Place in the oven and bake for about 8 minutes, or until firm, and springy. Cool slightly.

Turn the doughnuts out and arrange on your cake stand or plate.

Use a fork to drizzle the salted caramel sauce over the doughnuts then sprinkle with sea salt crystals and serve.

Makes about 36 mini doughnuts.
