A mini donut maker is a very easy appliance to use. They are straightforward enough that you can let your kids make mini donuts.
Mix up your mini donut maker recipe.
You don’t have to use one of these recipes though, you can use almost any mini donut recipe in your donut maker.
I make a piping bag out of a Ziploc bag. Put the corner of the bag into a large mug, fold the open bag open over the mug. I pour or scrape my mini donut batter into the Ziploc bag.
Snip the corner off. Not too big, or you’ll have too much batter into your mold, too small, and you risk popping your bag.
Preheat your donut maker. Each donut maker is going to be different. Read your instructions to see how exactly your appliance works.
Now that you have your mini donut recipe batter ready to go you can make mini donuts. Make sure to a non-stick spray before you fill your molds.
I pipe my batter into my preheated donut maker molds. This allows me to easily fill the molds with my batter without overfilling and making a mess and to make sure they are completely filled.
I use a spoon to kind of scoop the donuts out of the molds onto a cooling rack.
