Baked Naartjie Doughnuts
Makes 12
Recipe by Zola Nene

220g flour
7g instant yeast
50g sugar, plus extra for lining tins
70ml milk
2 eggs
2 naartjies, zested
100g salted butter, softened

For the syrup:
125g sugar

200ml naartjie juice
For the glaze:
2 cups Icing sugar
1 Naartjie, juiced and zested

Place the flour, yeast and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook.
Mix together the milk, eggs and nartjie zest then mix into the flour, leave the dough to mix for 5 minutes.
Add in the softened butter and work it through the dough thoroughly until it’s silky and stretchy.
Cover dough with cling film and leave to rise until doubled in size.
Grease and sugar 11cm rum baba tins (savarin moulds). Adding the sugar will help the fragile sponges come out of the moulds). If you don’t have a mould, simply pipe the doughnuts into shallow muffin tins – the shape will be different, but they will still taste great!
Place the dough into a piping bag with a large plain nozzle. Pipe the dough into the moulds – about halfway full.
Cover with plastic and leave to rise for 5 minutes in a warm place.
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes until the doughnuts are golden.
Meanwhile, make the syrup. Place the sugar and naartjie juice into a saucepan and bring to a rolling boil.
When the doughnuts are cooked, take them out of the oven and allow to cool a little before carefully removing them from their tins. Do this carefully, they may be fragile.
Dip each doughnut into the syrup, turning to dip both sides, allowing them to soak up the syrup.
Place onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
Mix the icing sugar with the naartjie zest and enough juice to make a thick icing glaze, then dip the rounded side of the doughnut into the glaze to coat.
