This recipe makes a batch of 12 baked doughnuts that are so tender and light, they almost melt in your mouth. The combination of chocolate and orange makes them feel a little bit festive, but if clementines aren't in season, oranges are just as delicious.
I've used cocoa powder to give the doughnuts a lovely chocolate flavour, without being too heavy – but if you're a real chocolate-lover, you could dunk them in melted dark chocolate instead of glazing them with icing sugar. Either way, they're absolutely delicious.
1 cup self-raising flour
½ cup soft brown sugar
Large pinch sea salt

Zest and juice of 2 clementines
For the glaze
