Super Cute, Super Mini Donuts

For the love of all things small! (Ach du liebe bissien! as my dad would say) I am having so much fun with this mini donut maker! How stinkn' cute are these! I received the Smart Planet donut maker and was at first rather skeptical. It received mixed reviews and looked like the George Forman grill I had back in college! I was advised NOT to use the enclosed recipe, so I looked up a bunch of baked donut recipes and made a hybrid of my very own and this is what I came up with! They are way smaller than I had ever imagined them to be. One can fit on a teaspoon. But who cares! They are so cute and are now considered by me a "diet" donut!
Granted, if you have the baking pan you can use that as well, but then you are not making 6 donuts every 4 mins!



Vanilla Spice Super Mini Donuts

2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground clove
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs lightly beaten
2 tbsp melted butter

Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, ground clove and salt. (You can sift it if you have a sifter, I just mix it all up).
Add the buttermilk, eggs, vanilla to the mixture.
I melted the butter and then warmed the buttermilk in a bowl added it to the mixture.
Then hand mix the batter with a spoon until everything is combined. Don't over do it. I let my Kitchenaid take the night off with these.

I placed the batter in a ziplock bag and cut the tip off to pipe into each cavity. I closed the machine for 3.5 mins each. They were ready when they bounced back when pressing on them.

For a donut baking pan I saw to bake at 425F for 5-8 minutes then let stand for 4-5 mins.

I had another bowl with 4 tbsp melted butter and another bowl filled with cinnamon sugar. I dipped the donuts into the butter then threw into the other bowl and shaked it until covered.

For the glaze I used
1 cup powder sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon 
2 table spoons milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. almond extract
Then I added food coloring until it was the color that I wanted

MUST TRY THIS!!! Oh just wait until you see some of the other goodies I have been doing with this thing!!
In the meantime, Stay inspired and stay Posh!
