Mini Doughnuts


Mini Doughnuts.JPG

One of the things I really enjoyed when I was studying in the States was doughnuts. I tried all sorts of doughnuts and to tell you the truth, I loved them all. If you made me choose one as my favorite, I would say that Boston cream were the ones that I was buying more often.

One of my local supermarkets, which puts on sale several kitchen gadgets every week, had this cute kitchen gadget for making mini doughnuts. I couldn’t resist the temptation and I bought it straight away.

My kitchen, which I can honestly say that has plenty of space, is completely full of gadgets and small appliances. My husband says that, if anyone gives me x closets, I will buy things for x³ closets lol. His first degree is in mathematics, what do you expect? And I reply to him that if anyone gives him y food, he will always want yᶯ  where n→∞(n approaches infinity). I was good in mathematics too you know. :lol:

Anyway, to make the long story short, I bought the thing and I couldn’t wait to try it. For completing my mission, I had to find a recipe that was suitable for baked doughnuts and made small quantities, because in any other case, I would bake for ages these tiny cuties. And I did find it here made by Jenny Jones and I made them too and they were gone in seconds. I had already taken the ones for the photographs away, otherwise there weren’t going to be any photographs!

They are tasty, they are easy and they are as healthy as a sweet can possibly be. If you feel like it, just give them a try and if you don’t have this gadget, just bake them in a doughnut tray, it’s the same thing.

Make the frosting by combining all the ingredients.

Start with the caster sugar.

Add the vanilla and finally add the milk and whisk. Try adding it little by little so as to accomplish the perfect texture for your frosting.

Place the doughnuts in the frosting and cover them completely.

You can also melt chocolate as I did and either cover them with it or make decorations.

  15. Hi, I came over from Juliana’s blog. You have a lovely blog here. I would love to have a large kitchen and fill all those spaces. I love gadget too, but I have a small kitchen and not much space for storage. Here in Florida we don’t have basement and really no attic space to speak of (not that I would store kitchen gadgets there). It is good to see someone who bought and tried this mini doughnut maker. They look great!

    Your donuts look fabulous, Katerina! When I was in college that was just about all we ate, which resulted in increased waistlines. (I have no resistance at all) so I confess I stay totally away from donuts now. Bad enough I eat ice cream!

    Κατερίνα την πήρα κι εγώ αυτή την συσκευή και έφτιαξα την συνταγή από το βιβλιαράκι. Έγιναν πολύ νόστιμα και άρεσαν σε όλους. Βέβαια κάποια στιγμή βαρέθηκα να κάνω μίνι ντόνατς και έβαλα την υπόλοιπη ζύμη στα μεγάλα φορμάκια που έχω και τα έψησα στον φούρνο.
    Πάντως τα δικά σου φαίνονται λαχταριστά!!
