Step by step method
In a mixing bowl, combine:
180g of Greek yogurt
150g of self-raising flour
Mix the yogurt and flour until they come together to form a dough.
Place the dough on a floured surface to prevent sticking.
Cut the dough into six equal portions.
Take each portion and roll it into a long rope.
Twist each rope in opposite directions, allowing the twists to come together naturally, and then press the ends together to seal.
Preheat your oven to 160 degrees Celsius (320 degrees Fahrenheit).
Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Brush the prepared twists with an egg wash. This will give them a beautiful, golden color when baked.
Place the twists on the prepared baking tray.
Bake in the preheated oven at 160 degrees Celsius for 10-15 minutes or until they are golden and cooked through.
Once the twists are finished baking, remove them from the oven.
While they are still warm, brush the tops of the twists with melted butter. This adds a rich, buttery flavor and a shiny finish to your donut twists.
In a separate bowl, combine:
70g of granulated sugar
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
Mix the sugar and cinnamon until they are well combined.
While the donut twists are still warm, gently roll and coat them in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Ensure they are evenly coated for that irresistible cinnamon flavor.
Tips & variations
Ensure that your Greek yogurt is cold when you mix it with the self-raising flour. Cold yogurt helps to create a better dough texture.
These Cinnamon Donut Twists are best when enjoyed fresh out of the oven. They are wonderfully warm and fragrant at that time.
Feel free to get creative by adding a drizzle of icing or a cream cheese glaze for an extra layer of sweetness.
