Easy Delicious Donuts

Photo credits to my younger sister

Salam everyone, I hope you are all well.

I never thought making donuts could be as easy as 1, 2, 3, I’ve tried this recipe many times and loved it each time. The following recipe truly is amazing and most off all easy. It would take no longer than 30mins from start to finish. The best thing about this recipe is that you only require two ingredients. YES you read it correct!😄. Well what are we waiting for, let’s hop to it😁

Try it and let me know how yours turn out inshaAllah.


190g Plain Yogurt

140g Self raising flour (or 140g plain flour with 1 1/2 tsp baking powder)


Add the two ingredients in a bowl

Combine well with a spatula or spoon

The consistency of the mixture will be rather thick

Add the mixture into a piping bag (snip the end)

Heat oil to fry

Once the oil heats up, squeeze out in small amounts (1inch at a time), use a pair of scissors to gently drop them into the oil.

Fry until lightly golden brown

Place them on a paper towel to drain the excess oil

Let it cool whilst you prepare your favourite coating/frosting for the donuts.

I am sure you are going to love making these, I loved it so much, mostly because I could get my 5 year old daughter involved without worrying about the mess she will make.😂 . Less ingredients +little child = less mess (call it baking together)😂!

Last veggie bite standing

My 4 year old daughter is a very fussy eater, she needs lots of flavour in her food, bland is not in her dictionary, just like her dad😉. Yep! It is a mission getting her to eat. I found this yummy recipe on instagram. To be honest it wasn’t yummy enough for my daughter but my husband and I enjoyed them so I gave myself a pat on my shoulder😅. I did tweak the ingredients slightly from the original recipe, I added salt and ginger garlic paste and next time I will try and add some meat or more pepper or other spices to give that extra bit of flavour for my little madam. By flavour I don’t mean she loves spicy, uh oh! if her food is spicy that means I’ve pushed her ‘tantrum button’😏😣. All kids have this button right? Well if your child doesn’t then wow you must have an angel, congratulations😂.

This recipe is ideal for snack time or even lunch or dinner, its healthy and yummy. We had ours for a light lunch


1 cup broccoli
1 1/2 cups cauliflower
1 cup grated cheese
1 cup breadcrumbs
2 whisked eggs
Pinch of Ginger garlic paste
Chopped fresh Parsley
Black pepper to taste
Salt to taste


Preheat the oven at 180°C

Line a baking tray

Boil the cauliflower and broccoli florets until a little soft

Roughly chop into small pieces

Put all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and combine.

Shape into tots or patties and put on a lined baking tray.

Pop into the oven for 15-20 minutes.
This made about 20 bites but some were different size as my daughter did them.

Serve with cheese and maybe some mayonnaise. Hubby ate his with mayonnaise and chilli sauce as you don’t qualify to be an Asian if you don’t add chilli to your food😅.

Enjoy and be thankful for the countless blessings Allah has bestowed on us. Be greatful to Allah. Remember those less fortunate than you.

Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The son of Adam does not fill any vessel worse than his stomach; for the son of Adam a few mouthfuls are sufficient to keep his back straight. If you must fill it, then one-third for food, one-third for drink and one-third for air.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2380; Ibn Maajah, 3349. Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi, 1939)

Eggless Chocolate cake

Eggless Chocolate cake

It was a mission making this, as it was my 3 year old daughter’s idea to make a chocolate cake for her Abu for one of her imaginative idea of pretend play, this time it was “Eid Party” so we had to bake a cake.

After giving birth to my second child (by the mercy of Allah) a month and a half ago, I haven’t had the chance to spend quality time with her. My toddler gets bored quickly these days as the cold weather creeps in and she’s stuck inside the house hence I’ve had to sacrifice more of my sleep and utilise that time with her, despite the constant screaming not to make a huge mess I do love the fact that I am able to give her some of my time and attention Alhamdulillah. Trust me it is not easy, some days are better than others and somedays you are beyond exhausted and just want to leave everything as it is and have a nap but this is a recipe for partial disaster because chores will just pile up, but hey it isn’t the end of the world.

I love chocolates and so does my daughter, my body craves for chocolatey goodness a bit more than hers therefore I had the largest portion of this cake in the house (shhh don’t tell anyone).

For the love of chocolates let us start with the mouth watering recipe already

Ingredients (1 cup = 255ml)

1 cup condensed milk / milkmaid
¾ cup unsalted butter at room temperature
1½ cup plain or all purpose flour
3 tbsp cocoa powder
¾ tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt (exclude if using salted butter

¾ cup warm milk add as required
¾ tsp vanilla essence

1 tsp vinegar


Add condensed milk and butter in a bowl and beat until consistency turns smooth and fluffy.

Sieve all the dry ingredients into the mixture: cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt, then fold gently

Add vinegar, vanilla essence and warm milk.

Gently mix until consistency is smooth

Transfer into a baking tray and bake for 35-40mins at 180 degree celsius.

Let it cool down completely before adding frosting.

Don’t mind the decorations as I said it was a mission getting it done with a toddler

Finally enjoy and share it with others
