Food Inspired Blog From Koh

Pee Pee Bakery doughnuts on Walking Street, Koh

For those of you who have not yet experienced a real home made 'Doughnut' from Koh Lipe's Pee Pee Bakery...this is for you. After our first return from Koh Lipe I was inspired to replicate this amazing doughy handmade doughnut and after a few trial tests in the kitchen, It soon became a roaring success with the family.
After my cherubs have been continuously asking me to make these over the past few weeks, and with an impending international trip coming up, I thought today would be a lazy Sunday baking in the Travelling with kids Kitchen. After spending yesterday chasing the Children around for Football and Netball commitments, which they all had their first win's for the season, may I add, It seemed time.

These 'Doughnuts' have been a huge hit within our community and I have made them for several of our  'Biggest Morning Teas' functions through our business with the profits going to the anti cancer council.

So girls, guys..get your rolling pins out and whip up a batch of Doughnuts that you have never imagined before.These taste nothing like you will find in a local bakery or Supermarket, and forget about Crispy Creme..these actually have an amazing taste of their own. Now unfortunately for me, being a Coeliac and now struggling with lactose intolerance, If I have one tiny bite of these amazing Doughnuts, I will pay for it for days, but I love to bake and enjoy the pleasure from watching the children help create and demolish the final product, today in keeping with Koh Lipe tradition and at Lucie's suggestion we even made Nutella filled doughnuts, they went down well apparently!!!

I must admit to being so inspired by the the food when we travel that when we arrive home, I can't wait to get into the kitchen and create something different. The homemade Doughnuts that we had in Koh Lipe and Langkawi were the best we had ever endured, so after a quick google search and a trip to KMART to purchase a $29 deep fryer...It was on...and boy are they delicious...take your pick....Cinnamon and Sugar, Vanilla glazed, Custard Creme and Jam Ball....mmmmmm, Homer Simpsom, eat your heart out!!! Oh and by the way...use Peanut Oil, It took me a few tries to work that out, such a different taste.

Authentic Bakers Jam, a whole 13kg, I wonder If I will ever see the bottom?

Now after using countless amounts of piping bags that continuously split from the heat of the jam, my husband came up with this suggestion of a Nurofen dispenser to insert the jam....he isn't just a pretty
