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 oven 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.
