For the Galaxy Doughnuts glaze you will need:

  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons milk
  • Food colouring: blue, red, green, black or any preferred colour (I’ve used blue, red and black)
  • Edible glitter

 How to make the doughnuts step by step:

  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees C.
  • Grease doughnut pan with vegetable oil and set aside. You can also use a cooking spray for easiness.
  • Sift flour together with baking powder in a large bowl. Add in the sugar and salt and mix well.
  • In a smaller bowl mix milk, eggs, butter and vanilla.
  • Add in the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir until all flour is incorporated and all the ingredients are well combined.
  • Using a pipping bag, fill 3/4 of each pan cavity with the batter.
  • Bake for aprox. 10 minutes (it really depends on each oven) or until the tops of the doughnuts are fluffy when touching.
  • After baking, allow them to cool down before removing from the pan for 3-4 minutes. Then move the doughnuts on a cooling rack and let them cool completely before glazing them.

How to make the baked Galaxy Doughnuts glaze:

  • Mix the milk and sugar into a bowl or plate (not very flat and big enough to accommodate your doughnut), making sure it has no lumps. If it is too watery, add more sugar, if it is too thick, add more milk.
  • Add few drops of different colours into the glaze and stir them with a toothpick or a thin straw  in order to swirl the colour creating a marble effect
  • Sink the top part of the doughnut into the glaze. Repeat this few times, so that the glaze stick on the doughnut
  • Once glazed, place them back on a cooling rack, so that the droplets of colour will not dry out on the base of the muffin
  • Dust with the glitter before the glaze has time to harden.
