***This recipe is for use in a doughnut maker (the kind that works like a waffle-iron). They are not deep fried and cannot be cooked successfully that way.***
I got my husband, Allen, a Babycakes mini-doughnut maker for Father's Day in 2011. It's the gift that keeps on giving! My kids love these doughnuts because I always let them decorate their own, and I love them because they're not nearly as unhealthy as real doughnuts, and about ten times easier to make (they're basically cupcakes in the shape of douhgnuts).
The doughnut-maker came with a recipe book and the little fork-gadget that helps you remove them neatly from the pan. I love getting it out especially when my kids have friends over, or when nephews and nieces come to visit. It's party food, but not the kind that keeps you on your feet in the kitchen all day.
|Slide the fork in to lift the doughnut out|
|You can barely see the little holes|
after you remove the fork
|It's easy to get the batter in if you pipe it with a plastic bag . . .|
| . . . or you can just use your smallest measuring cup |
and pour it into each hole
|This was our first time using the Babycakes|
with cousins in 2011!
|My son Brig, sprinkle-shaking|
|Just think of how much was on the doughnuts . . .|
|Baby Cal loves plain sour cream baby doughnuts!|
|You can always dust with powdered sugar|
if you don't feel like making frosting
