125g plain flour
1 sp baking powder, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, pinch salt. In another bowl mix 90ml milk (I used soya milk), 1 egg, drop of vanilla extract, and tbsp peanut oil. Beat the two mixtures together.
Fill greased doughnut tins about half to two thirds of the way up and bake in a medium oven (about 165 C) for about 10 minutes. They will go a golden brown, and when they are done will come out of the tin with the tiniest encouragement from a pallette knife. Icing is just juice of half a lemon and icing sugar to a stiffish consistency drizzled over the top. Actually I think a maple syrup glaze would go really well - might try that next time.
Egg news: 2 today - and Rosemary has gone broody. She has lost all her breast feathers to try to better nurture her non-existent clutch, and in hunkering down on the nest. Trying to chuck her off every hour or so, but I think she's a determined little mother hen... still fingers crossed she comes out of it soon, or we'll have to find a sources of fertilised eggs for her.
