Mini Donuts

These are a delicious treat for breakfast! If you are feeling adventurous you could even make them for lunch, dinner, or a snack!

It’s a pretty basic donut recipe, so feel free to add different things into the batter or on top of the glaze, such as mini chocolate chips, crushed up Oreos, M&Ms, or even sprinkles!

We will also include an amazing CHOCOLATE GLAZE to put on top!

Supplies Needed:
Hand mixer
2 medium or large sized bowls
Wire Cooling Rack (a plate works just as well)
A spoon
A fork
Donut Maker

Ingredients for the Donuts:
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 or 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (depending on how strong you want the flavor)
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons melted butter

STEPS for the Donuts:

  1. Heat up your donut maker and wait until the light turns off.
  2. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt together, stir lightly..
  3. Add in the milk, eggs, vanilla, and butter.
  4. Stir it up until it is smooth, but do NOT over-beat!
  5. Pour it into your donut maker, using a spoon or a special pourer.
  6. Close the lid and rotate the handle, set a timer for 1 min.
  7. ****If they start to smoke, check on them!****
  8. Take them out one by one with a fork, put them on a wire rack (or plate) to cool completely, and repeat the process until the batter is gone.

Ingredients for the Frosting:
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
a pinch of salt
3 to 4 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
STEPS for the Frosting:

  1. Start whipping up the frosting after all of the donuts have been set on the rack to cool.
  2. Pour the dry frosting ingredients into a bowl and mix them until they are combined.
  3. Pour in the wet ingredients next.
  4. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together throughly, until the frosting has no lumps or chunks. It should look smooth, creamy, and luscious.
  5. Using a butter knife, spread the frosting over the cooled donuts.
  7. Let the donuts dry before putting them in a closed container.
  8. BUT… you may enjoy some right now… just to make sure they meet your standards. 🙂
