BAKED MINI DOUGHNUTS


these doughnuts didn't go out to the shed
and smoke something illegal.
in case that's what you were thinking.
no no no.
these are just a slightly healthier(?) version of the regular doughnut,
which is deep-fried.
yum.
but these are still really good!
they're kind of like a cross between a
cupcake and a doughnut.

unfortunately you will need a doughnut pan.
they are hard to find in stores,

the batter is SOOOOOO easy.
something like this,
but alter it however you wish.
1 c flour
1/2 c sugar or honey or something sweet
1 t powder
pinch salt
1/2 liquid (water, milk etc)
vanilla or vanilla bean
1 egg
1 or more T melted butter
don't over mix.
i recommend using a bag to pipe the batter into the pan.
iz waaaaay easier.
bake 4-7 min at 400F

i got the idea here,
then ordered myself a doughnut pan for xmas.

it was totally worth it.

it's pretty awesome to make 7 or 8 dozen
at a time
and glaze and sprinkle them all
and give them out to people whom you want
to be friends with.
or people who are friends already,
just to maintain that relationship.

i don't have a great camera for food photography,
but these donuts are chocolatey glazed and pink glazed.
regular glaze:
4 parts icing sugar
1 part melted butter
water till thin enough to dip donuts
food colouring

chocolatey glaze:
3 parts icing sugar
2 parts cocoa (sifted, trust me)
1 part melted butter
water till blah blah blah

woah fish-eye donuts!

these beauts we made for new years
i like the blue icing.

oh. herroooo sprinkles.
it did get completed.
and it was awesome.
