Simple mini doughnuts

    Got a doughnut maker but can't find a good recipe? Well this may be it. This mixture cooks your doughnuts just like they've been fried instead of baked, crispy on the outside yet fluffy and airy inside.

    Great recipe. They were lovely and light. My daughter, Lauren has had a donut maker for two years but not used it much. Now we have this recipe we'll definitely do a batch for our Macmillan coffee morning this year. Decorated them in chocolate, colourful icing and hundreds and thousands.  -  21 May 2018


    First recipe I tried and found it great they really taste like donuts.  -  12 May 2018


    Wow! Made 28 mini donuts with this recipe. I had a mini donut maker quite a few years ago and it ended up being chucked because we just couldn't get any decent recipes to work with it. Got a new donut maker a couple of days ago and tried it tonight. After the first 14 were made, we started tucking in and they were almost gone straight away. I told Hubby that I'll make a load for him to take in to his colleagues tomorrow night, I reckon 100 donuts should do it!  -  01 Sep 2017
