Cinnamon Pear Donuts
60gwhole grain flour
60galmond or cashew flour
Preheat the oven to 170°C top/bottom heat. Coarsely chop the nuts for topping and put them in the oven for a few minutes until they start to smell. Take them out and let them cool.
Grease a donut pan for 8 pieces of “normal sized” donuts. (If you don’t have a donut pan, you can also use the dough for muffins. The baking time will then be a little longer.)
Wash the pear, cut in half, core it and cut it into small cubes (approx. 4 mm in size). Melt the butter, but do not let it get too hot.
Combine flour, cashew flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and baking powder in a large bowl.
Put the egg, yoghurt and melted butter to the dry ingredients and mix with a spatula. Fold in the pear pieces.
Pour the dough into a piping bag of at least Ø 1.5 cm and inject into the donut moulds. Bake in the preheated oven for 13-17 minutes until the surface is slightly golden. Remove the pan from the oven and allow to cool briefly. Then carefully remove the donuts and let them cool down completely.
For the glaze, mix the icing sugar with the maple syrup and the milk. If necessary, add a little more milk (0.5 – 1 tbsp) if the glaze is to become more liquid. Brush the donuts with a brush. Sprinkle with the nuts. Enjoy!
