Birthday Bakes - Vincent's 6th Birthday

by 15.10.19

Who doesn't love donuts? For me the best donuts I've ever had were from Voodoo Donuts. Just the plain one with powdered sugar. It is pure heaven!

Vincent is a big donut fan. For his 6th birthday I made mini donuts with a donut maker. They were the treats he took with him to his classroom to hand out to his classmates. He was already telling the kids the day before his birthday that he was going to bring donuts.

I decorated them with some white chocolate and a couple of sprinkles. These donuts are not fried, but baked. They taste more like like sponge cake, then donuts. The kids loved them anyway and they are a little less unhealthy ;)

The recipe that I used is the one that is in the manual from the donut maker. I am sure that there are better recipes out there. I will definitely experiment more. Next recipe I will try will be with yeast. I saw that Laura in the Kitchen has some recipes. The ingredients should be a little different because these donuts are baked and not fried.

Here is a link to the one that I got from KIK:  Donut Maker

Recipe from the Manual

260g plain flour
130g white sugar (I use half)
1 packet vanilla sugar (8g)
250 ml milk
3 eggs
5 table spoons oil
1 bag baking powder (16g)
sprinkle of salt
your topping of choice

1. Add all ingredients in a bowl and mix until nice and smooth.
2. Heat up the donut maker (I've heated it a couple of times before I used it. You should always do this when using new appliances).
3. Butter or oil up the machine.
4. Add the batter with a table spoon on the lower part of the donut shape. One table spoon should be enough. The batter will rise up to the upper part of the donut.      
5. Bake them for about 3 to 4 minutes.
6. Take out the donuts and let them cool down before you decorate them.

They were a total hit with 6- year- olds and my parents loved them too ;) I like that they were bite size.
