Baked Doughnuts for Chanukah

Raise your hand if you ever really stick to your shopping list! Yeah, I didn’t think so. Neither do I. So while on a shopping trip at Bed Bath & Beyond, I happened upon a mini doughnut pan by Wilton and bought two! I mean, each pan only makes twelve mini doughnuts, and I knew I would want more that. Are you laughing now? I put the pans aside for the right moment and it came when my three-year-old randomly asked for chocolate doughnuts.

I made these Baked Doughnuts.  Then I lightly topped 24 of the doughnuts with colorful sprinkles for my 3-year-old, Zach, and another 12 with shimmery yellow sugar from Breezy’s in Long Island. I think I enjoyed them more than he did.  Thirty Six baked doughnuts later, Zach actually asked for red doughnuts. What a demanding child! Since I still had ¼ of the batter left, I added some red food coloring and Zach had red mini doughnuts!

There you have it! These mini cake doughnuts are delicious and so much fun to just pop in my mouth, one by one. I can’t
wait to try out different flavors, such as lemon or cinnamon. What a show-stopper these will be! You can also bake other
recipes in the mini doughnut pans, such as corn bread or spinach kugel. Just adjust your baking time, since they only need to cook for 10-15 minutes.

Happy Chaunukah!
