I have been wanting to make mini doughnuts for a while now. They are popping up all over Pinterest. Valentine's Day seemed like the perfect excuse to make them. I went crazy looking for a mini doughnut pan but I couldn't find one anywhere and I wouldn't have gotten it on time if I ordered it online. Luckily I found a mini doughnut maker at the grocery store (of all places!). I was a bit skeptical at first about using the mini doughnut maker but I am happy with how they turned out.
I got a little ambitious and made 3 different kinds of doughnuts:
plain with vanilla glaze (Icing sugar, milk and vanilla)
red velvet with white chocolate glaze (I used the same recipe as the chocolate glaze but with white chocolate instead)
My favourite were the plain ones with the vanilla glaze. The recipe seemed to work best with the doughnut maker. The chocolate ones were very dense and I burned a few of the red velvet (I learned I had to give my doughnut maker a bit of a break).
I packaged them up with tissue paper in little boxes I got from the dollar store and delivered them. They were a huge hit with everyone!
