Donuts made with pancake mix



ホットケーキミックスドーナツ(hotcake mix donuts)

What kind of dish is hotcake mix donuts⁇

This is a donut recipe made using pancake mix.

Pancakes are called “hot cakes” in Japan. Hotcake mix is a mixture of flour, baking powder, and sugar.

Hot cake mix sold by Morinaga is recommended. It was better to add vanilla essence to the pancake mix I bought at the business supermarket.

It has a texture like the old fashion sold at Mister Donut. The immoral feeling of sugar and oil is irresistible. Let’s pamper ourselves once in a while and get through the days (*ˊᵕˋ)

  • butter 15g
  • hotcake mix 150g
  • sugar 10g
  • egg
  • oil moderate amount
  • chocolate 40g

If you double the amount, using two eggs will make the dough too soft. In that case, please add 30-50g of pancake mix or flour.


① Put the butter in a heat-resistant container and heat it in the microwave for 20 seconds to melt it.

② Combine the pancake mix and sugar.

③ Add the beaten egg and butter to the dough and mix it like cutting. Do not knead. If gluten occurs, it will not be delicious.

Make sure there are no lumps of powder.

④ When the whole comes together, roll it up and wrap it in plastic wrap.

Shape into a square so that it can be easily stretched. If it feels sticky at this point, the dough is too soft. In that case, add about 2 tablespoons of pancake mix or flour.

⑤ Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

⑥ Stretch the dough and pull it out with a mold. The thickness of the dough is 1~1.5cm. It’s about 7 cm in diameter. If the dough sticks to the board, dust it with flour.

If the dough is soft after cutting it out, it is best to chill it in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes.

⑦ Fry in oil of about 160 degrees for 3 to 4 minutes.(160 degrees Celsius is 320 degrees Fahrenheit.) Be careful as it will burn in no time.

If you’re not careful, it will burn quickly. Fry slowly at a low temperature.

It will double in size when fried.

⑧ Drain the oil.

⑨ Coat with chocolate if you like. One chocolate bar is enough. I used black chocolate. Heat the chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds to melt it, then spread it on the donut with a spoon.
