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.
Mini Donut Recipes I Use These Tools for
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.
Mini donuts slide right off of the non-stick plates making cleanup a snap.
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.
This is ideal for making delicious donuts. It makes it easier for filling the mini donut molds without making a mess.
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!
Silicone donuts mold for baking mini donuts. You can use a cookie sheet to make mini donuts with these silicone molds.
This donut baking pan is for mini sized donuts and make them in fun shapes.
Soft on hands, easy to squeeze, and no need for a metal tip. Just cut the sharp tip of the bag to the size you need, and you’re able to write, outline, flood, etc.
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.
20oz mug. I use a mug for my bag to sit in while I fill the mold. A larger mug work a lot better than a standard, smaller mug.
Mini donuts are a fun snack here. They are great and easy to make for movies at home or a fun summer treat on a picnic.
