Viewers were in for a treat tonight as the BBC dropped not one but two episodes of the star’s series Nadiya Bakes.
And while showcasing an eight tier cake, as well as making herself a plate of biscuits to indulge in, the baker also revealed her unconventional recipe.
‘We are going to make doughnuts,’ she told viewers at home. ‘And I promise you these are no ordinary doughnuts. These are my brilliantly wicked, outrageously tasty chicken doughnuts
‘These light and fluffy parcels filled with BBQ chicken and sprinkled with savoury dust are so much fun to make and even more fun to eat.’
And she sure did her best to sell them to her audience – although not everyone was convinced.
Taking to Twitter fans expressed how they had no clue how to feel over the new bake, which saw the savoury filling encrusted in sweet deep fried dough.
‘Not convinced by the idea of chicken doughnuts,’ one wrote while another said: ‘Chicken doughnuts. I kind of want to try them but at the same time I don’t.’
Others were more open to the idea: ‘Chicken.. doughnuts?!!! I’d give them a whirl.’
And it seems someone else agreed that they looked like a tasty snack: ‘Chicken doughnuts? Yes please!’
If you want to try out the recipe, Nadiya revealed what you need to get the perfect bake.
To start, mix 550g of strong bread flour with 14g fast-action yeast, then add in 60g of caster sugar and 175g unsalted butter.
Rub the butter into the flour before adding four eggs and 100ml cold water to make a dough.
While that is proving, Nadiya turned her attention to the filling, where she stirred together 280g cooked chicken, a handful of fresh chives, 7tbsp of BBQ sauce 3tbsp mayonnaise, and a teaspoon of chilli flakes.
After weighing out each doughnut to 90g, the baker then rolled the dough into 12cm squares, placed a table spoon of filling into the middle, before bringing the sides into the middle to form a little parcel.
She pinched the tops together to form a seam and deep fried them for five to six minutes.
Once they were cooked, Nadiya sprinkled her ‘savoury’ dust on top, which was made from a teaspoon each of caster sugar, salt, dry coriander leaves, ground cumin, and garlic granules.
They looked divine.
‘These are the most confusing, most delicious thing you will ever eat,’ she said.
Nadiya Bakes airs on BBC Two.
