Baked Tim Tam Doughnut (Donut)

Besides the Crocodile Dundee and Steve Irwin, one of the many things you should know about Australia is it is a home for the chocolate coated biscuits (with chocolate cream filling) called Tim Tams.

Just ask any Australian about Tim Tams, and you’ll soon realise how obessessed the nation is with these chocolate coated biscuits. It’s hard to imagine how a humble chocolate coated biscuit can have such a strong hold on the nation’s  sweet tooth right? Well, if you asked yourself this question, you really have to try this biscuit to see for yourself. We will be here waiting to welcome you to  the Tim Tam fan club. 😉

With our passion blazing all around Australia, Tim Tam got the hint (an understatement) and launched a “Truly, Madly, Tim Tam”campaign to showcase Australia’s love for Tim Tams through a series of short ads on The Arnott’s Australia Youtube Channel.

Hold on a sec, before you ditch me for Tim Tam or to check out the videos, I’d like to show you how I incorporated my favourite biscuits into my baked doughnuts.  You see, the idea is to give you an excuse to get an extra packet to try the recipe below. It only requires 3 Tim Tam biscuits and you can have the rest for yourself. No one has to know. 😉

Sounds like a good plan?

Baked Tim Tam Doughnut (Donut)

(recipe tweaked from Baking Bites which I’ve discovered through CaffeIna)

Makes 12 doughnuts if you are using a doughnut pan or 10 muffins with a muffin pan

What you need:-

  • 1oog (3.5 oz or 3/4 cup) caster sugar (fine sugar)
  • 3 Tim Tam biscuits (I used Double Choc Caramel)

  • 10 g (2 tsp) baking power
  • 1 pinch (1/4 tsp) salt
  • 1 pinch (1/4 tsp) ground cinnamon
  • 60 ml (2 fl oz or 1/4 cup) #flavourless oil + extra for greasing the pan
  • 180 ml (6 fl oz or 3/4 cup) milk
  • 5 gr (1 tsp) vanilla extract

For dusting:-

  • 1/2 cup caster sugar

#flavourless oil i.e. vegetable oil, canola etc.

Let’s get started:-

(1) Preheat oven to 180 degrees C/ 350F. L ightly grease a doughnut pan with cooking spray or flavourless oil.  (2) Roughly chop Tim Tam biscuits until resembles rubbles. (3) In a large bowl, beat together sugar and egg until light in color. (4) In a small bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. (5) Add flour mixture into egg mixture and stir to combine. Then, pour in vegetable oil, milk and vanilla extract. (6) Add Tim Tam and stir to combine. (7) Divide batter evenly into the doughnut pan, filling each about 1/2 full. (8) Bake for 15-18 minutes, until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. When the doughnuts are done, dust with caster sugar while they are hot.

{A screenshot of my name appeared at the end of the video. Cool huh? I love how the Tim Tam people have created a personalised video by having my name featured on the video. FYI- only my name appeared on the personalised ad, not the person. 🙂 Click here to watch the full video. Spoiler alert – if you pray hard enough, chocolate biscuits do grow on trees. :P}
