Ginger can be used as a doughnut flavouring

Why not make doughnuts with cinnamon and ginger

Chefs wondering if they could effectively incorporate culinary spices into dessert recipes could try using ginger as a flavouring with pumpkin for doughnuts.

Allegra McEvedy, author of Bought, Borrowed & Stolen: Recipes and Knives from a Travelling Chef, shared her ingredients for this sweet in the Guardian.

First, yeast extract and sugar are whisked in warm milk, before mixing cinnamon, flour, pumpkin, salt and sugar in a bowl.

The whisked yeast is then introduced and the resulting dough is kneaded and rolled into the required shape.

For the icing, butter is melted in milk and icing sugar, ground ginger and vanilla extract are added together.

The cooked doughnuts are dipped into this glaze when they are ready.

"There's not many ills in the world that can't be cured with a warm doughnut," Ms McEvedy remarked.

Cinnamon is often used in sweet dishes and in an article for the Independent Bill Granger recommended using it with vanilla when preparing a fruity muesli.
