2 tbspWheat flour (dry ingredient)
0.5 tspBaking powder (dry ingredient)
4.5 tbspWater (wet ingredient)
1 tspOil (wet ingredient)
0.5 tspSugar (wet ingredient)
2Pinches of salt (wet ingredient)
Slurry for coating
1.5 tbspSugar

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 170°C.
  2. Sieve all dry ingredients into a mixing bowl.
  3. Combine wet ingredients together in a small cup, stir until sugar and salt completely dissolved.
  4. Add wet mix to the dry ingredients and stir with a spatula until no more lumps. Do not over mix. Rest the batter for 5 mins. Batter consistency after resting should be similar to peanut butter.
  5. Put the batter into a piping bag fitted with a plain nozzle, 3mm in diameter. Optionally, use a disposable piping bag and make a very small cut at the tip.
  6. Pipe rings the same size as CHEERIOS® onto a baking tray lined with non-stick paper.
  7. Bake at 170°C for 8-10 minutes.
  8. Allow to cool after baking.


  1. Mix sugar, honey and boiling water together until sugar is completely dissolved. Use immediately, or reheat in microwave for few seconds if cooled down.
  2. For every 50g of baked rings, drizzle ¾ teaspoon of the hot slurry.  Mix quickly until the rings are uniformly coated.
  3. Spread the coated rings on a baking tray lined with a non-stick paper.
  4. Bake at 120°C for 8-10 minutes until crispy.
