We love using our mini donut maker in our house. It is easy to make a fun, bite-sized snack. They are quick to make. And easy enough that anyone can make them no matter your cooking or baking skill level. Plus, there is so much you can do to make your mini donuts yours, between flavors and toppings.
I am not high-tech when it comes to making anything. The reason we have a mini donut maker in the first place is probably because I bought it impulsively.
Other than my donut maker, I don’t get fancy when I make my mini donuts but I know it could be easier if I had a batter dispenser. It could simplify filling the molds, versus using a piping bag, or like I do, using a Ziploc bag and a mug.
Using a mini donut maker makes these great for kids to make. They don’t have to worry about the hot oven, and they are quite fast to make. They won’t have to worry about setting a timer, or forgetting about them either.
Tools for Making Mini Donuts
Having the right tools on hand when you go to make mini donuts at home makes all the difference. Here is what I use, and what I recommend.
From recipes for the traditional donuts everyone craves like Chocolate Cake and Powered Sugar to fun, new twists like Chocolate-Bacon-Maple, the donuts in this cookbook will leave you begging for more.
Extra large donut pan makes a big batch of 20 cake doughnuts all at once. Maybe you want to try to make mini donuts in the oven instead of using a mini donut maker. This pan allows you to do 20 at a time!
Each bowl has a pour spout, which helps to reduce the chance of spills when transferring mixes. I love bowls, the hand and the pour spout making them great for filling piping bags and other pans when baking.
