Deck the table with dainty doughnut wreaths that make super-sweet Christmas treats.

INGREDIENTS

150g (1 cup) self-raising flour
70g (1/3 cup) caster sugar
80ml (1/3 cup) milk
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
50g butter, melted, cooled
300g (2 cups) icing sugar mixture, sifted
60ml (1/4 cup) hot water
60g natural flaked almonds

METHOD

Step 1 Preheat panggangan to 180C/160C fan forced. Lightly grease a 12-hole mini doughnut pan.

Step 2 Sift the flour into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar. Make a well in the centre. Use a fork to whisk together the milk, egg and vanilla in a jug. Add milk mixture and butter to the well and gently fold until combined. Spoon mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 1cm plain nozzle. Pipe into prepared pans.

Step 3 Bake for 15 minutes or until doughnuts are golden and spring back when lightly touched. Set aside in pans for 10 minutes to cool slightly. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 4 Place icing sugar in a bowl. Stir in water until smooth. Working with one at a time, carefully dip the underside of a doughnut into icing, allowing excess to drain off. Place, glaze-side up, on a wire rack and arrange the almonds on top. Set aside to set.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
