Happy November!

To be completely honest I really don’t like November that much, it always seems to be too cold for autumn and to warm for winter and not half as fun as either.

A couple of weeks ago my sister found a mini doughnut maker at a yard sale and knowing that I wanted one she kindly bought it for me, and me being me was very excited and anxious to test it out.

Ingredients 

  • 1 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour 
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder 
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon Nutmeg 
  • 1/2 Cup Butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar( I used Monk Fruit) 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1/2 Cup Milk

Royal Icing 

  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 4 cups Powdered Sugar 

 

While the doughnut maker was heating up I mixed up the batter.

In a medium-sized bowl, I whisked together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

In a large mixing bowl I beat the butter and sugar until it was fluffy, then I added the eggs.

Then I added the flour mixer and the milk to the butter mixture by adding half the flour and half the milk and the rest of the flour and the rest of the milk, mixing between each addition.

Next, I put the batter into an icing bag, I find that this made it super easy( and tidy) to get the batter into the little rings.

Then finally I pipped the batter into the doughnut rings!

As far as the cooking time I’m not completely sure because I followed the little light on the top of the device, but I would say around five minutes.

Once the doughnuts were done and a toothpick came out clean I removed them from the doughnut maker and placed them on the cooling rack.

Icing

For the icing, I just beat the egg whites until they were fluffy and then added the powdered sugar. You may need to use more or less powdered sugar depending on the consistency you prefer your icing to be.

Once the doughnuts were completely cooled I dipped the top of each one in the icing and giggled them to get any excess icing off.

After dipping them I used a toothpick to make sure that the hole in the middle was clear so that they looked like doughnuts.

Then I sprinkled them with some cute little leaf sprinkles I found at TJ Maxx, I believe they are from Wilton.

once the icing set, I put them on a plate and served them.

I know this wasn’t a classic recipe post, but I hope you still enjoyed it. I’m sure you will be seeing more mini doughnuts in the future.

I’m hoping to get back into doing more baking on here, so if there is anything you would like to see me attempt next please to let me know.
