  • for donut batter:
  • 2½ cups (350 grams) all-purpose flour
  • ⅔ cup (55 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 4 eggs (room temperature)
  • 1 cup (200 grams) granulated white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 tbsp (150 grams) plain white yogurt
  • ½ cup (120 ml) milk
  • 6 tbsp vegetable oil
  • for glaze:
  • 6 tbsp (85 grams) unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) milk
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 oz (85 grams) dark chocolate, broken into chunks
  • 1¼ cups (145 grams) icing sugar, sifted
  • sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 °F (175 °C).
  2. Grease the donut pan with cooking spray or brush with oil.
  3. To make the DONUT BATTER, first, in a small bowl, combine the plain white yogurt, milk and the vegetable oil. Mix well.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  5. In a larger bowl, beat the eggs lightly. Add the sugar and continue to beat until foamy. Add the vanilla extract and mix well.
  6. Add the milk/yogurt/oil mixture and the cocoa mixture to the egg mixture alternately. Mix until the batter is smooth. If you find the batter a bit too dense to pipe, add a little more milk.

  12. Once the butter has melted, add in the chocolate and whisk until smooth.
  13. Remove from heat and add the icing sugar, stirring until combined.
  14. Dip the cooled doughnuts into the glaze and cover with chocolate sprinkles.

New Pattern – Knitted Hooded Baby Jacket (Age 0-3 Months)

knitting pattern - knitted hooded baby jacket age 0-3 months

Happy New Year to everyone! May you be happy and healthy all year long!

I am kicking off this year with a brand new pattern. This one is rather special to me because it’s my first ever knitting pattern. I mean, it’s the first one I have designed and written down for my pattern shop. It’s fun to have a knitting pattern after 63 crochet ones I made before. A special beginning to a hopefully special year.

The pattern describes how to make a Hooded Baby Jacket. The jacket is suitable for babies age 0-3 months. I think the jackets can make lovely gifts for the little humans you or your loved ones may be expecting…

The pattern that I prepared for those of you who are interested, is packed full of pictures and step by step instructions. You can find it in my shops here or here.

My Favorite Holiday Craft

cup and knitting

Although I show all traits of a crochet person throughout the year, I have noticed that there is a different kind of craft that allures me during the holiday season.

It’s knitting.

Sweet knitting.

I don’t really understand why this keeps happening to me, but I can see clearly that each year around Christmas I find myself working enthusiastically on a new knitting project.

Maybe it’s all about the gorgeous sound of needles at work that adds to the delightfulness of holidays and makes this time even more spectacular. Who knows…

 

Christmas knitting

This year I am working on a special project that is making me very, very happy. I can’t wait to show you the result.

And, by the way, do you have any special craft or hobby that calls your name during the holidays? Do share!

With lots of love,

Petra
