Surprisingly this recipe isn’t off the Kmart Pie Maker, Recipes, Tips & Ideas Australia Facebook Group, but I do recommend joining that one because it’s full of ideas.
I found today’s recipe on Taste.com.au and bless those angels at Taste for thinking of things I wouldn’t imagine in my wildest dreams.
Caramilk Custard? As a doughnut filling?? Made in a pie maker??
So let’s get down to it. What will you need?
- 1 cup self-raising flour
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons caster sugar
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 90g butter
- Extra 60g butter, melted
- Extra 1/3 cup caster sugar
CARAMILK CUSTARD FILLING
- 1 tablespoon custard powder
- 1/2 cup milk
- 75g Cadbury Caramilk chocolate, roughly chipped
MAKE CARAMILK CUSTARD FILLING
Pop the custard powder in a small pot.
Add 1 TBS of milk and stir until smooth.
Add the rest of the milk and stir until combined.
Keep stirring over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes until custard boils and thickens.
Add the Caramilk chocolate and stir until melted.
Pour into bowl and cover with cling wrap, let sit for 5 minutes then transfer to refrigerate until set (15 minutes roughly).
Whisk together flour, cocoa and sugar in a mixing bowl.
Whisk milk and eggs together in a separate bowl.
Create a well in the centre of the dry mix and pour in the wet mix.
Stir until combined.
Preheat pie maker.
Spoon in 1 TBS of doughnut mix into each pie whole, do it quickly so they cook evenly.
Then spoon 2 TSPs of custard into the centre.
Finally cover these with 1 more TBS of doughnut mix.
Cook for 9 minutes or until the doughnuts spring back to touch.
This is optional but when serving think about a little brush of butter on top and a small sprinkle of sugar.
How easy is that!
Obviously the chocolate is interchangeable so you can make whichever flavour you want.
