Ice Cream Doughnuts: Make Them Yourself!

  • All Ages

B Sweet, a Los Angeles-based dessert bar has gone and made every American child's summer treat dreams come true. They've just released 'Halos', which are fresh, warm, glazed doughnuts with your choice of their 6 weekly ice cream offerings heat-sealed inside! The best of hot meets the best of cold.

According to their menu, they describe Halos as a “hot pressed glazed donut ice cream sandwich". We're wishing we had a US holiday coming up, that's for sure...

Can't Get To California? No Problem!

Taste has shared an awesome recipe for a double-fried doughnut, filled with ice cream and drizzled with caramel sauce. You're welcome:

Here's What To Do:

1. Line a tray with baking paper

2. Use a 3.5cm cutter to cut a larger hole from 8 cinnamon doughnuts and place on tray

3.  Spoon 400g vanilla ice-cream into holes, packing firmly

4. Freeze for 1 hour or until firm

5. Lightly whisk 2 eggs in a bowl

6. Combine 400g buttercake crumbs and 1⁄2 cup desiccated coconut in a second bowl

7. Working quickly, dip doughnuts in egg, then crumb mixture. Return to tray and freeze for 1 hour

8. Deep-fry in a saucepan half-filled with vegetable oil at 180°C, 1 at a time, for 1 minute each side or until golden. Drain

9. Serve with warm caramel sauce

Tasty shared a slightly similar spin on this delicious recipe, including what to do to make your own glaze for the doughnuts. Give it a go this weekend as a special treat before your kids head back to school on Monday!
