When it comes to donuts and eating a donuts, there is no dilemma there for me. My answer is always a resounding YES!
So when I came down for breakfast and my husband had taken the donut maker out of the box, I smiled. I smiled so big my grin touched my ears.
We mixed together an egg, flour, sugar, baking powder, vanilla and oil for the donut batter. Poured some in each donut divot and waited…impatiently!
My Dad gave me this mini donut maker for Christmas. (He even wrapped it himself) 🙂 The donuts turned a golden brown color when they were ready to be taken out.
I made some icing to top the mini mounds with, first a thin sugary glaze. And some vanilla icing with powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract. And lastly I melted some chocolate chips, powdered sugar and water together to make a chocolate icing. All 3 were quite tasty if I do say so myself!
It was fun to candy coat these donuts with sprinkles, sugar crystals, mini chocolate chips and M&M’s.
The donuts came out easily, they did not stick, thankfully. Who wants to waste any part of this yummy treat!
We even slipped in some Ghirardelli chocolate chips and butterscotch chips in the middle of these mini donuts.
So that’s the end of my false donut dilemma. There is no arguement or fight with me when it comes to donuts.
~I heart donuts~
So why the two different spelling of donut/doughnut? IDK? Do you?
Has anyone ever been to Doughnut Plant in NYC? While visiting NYC this last August, this bakery was on my “must do” list. I had seen it featured on The Food Network earlier in the year and marked it down as somewhere I wanted to visit someday.
I wouldn’t leave the city until I had visited this little piece of heaven on earth. They have square doughnuts, oh yes they do, square filled doughnuts!
Some of their flavors include: Blackout, Vanilla Bean, Peanut Butter Blackberry Jam filled, Valrhona Chocolate, Tres Leches, Orange, Carrot Cake, Creme Brulee, Blueberry, Meyer Lemon, Marzipan, Gingerbread, Panettone & Coconut Glaze Coconut Creme.
OMG, how could you pass up that array of scrumptious flavors!!! I could not. I think I walked out of there with 6+ doughnuts. I ate them down so fast that I didn’t take any pictures of them. How dare I! But I am not one bit remorseful about it 🙂
As you can see from the picture this is a very small lil bakery. The space in the front of the store for customers only holds about 10-15 people hence the line out the door. But let that not deter you. This is a popular spot as evidenced by another lady taking pictures and I suggest getting there early for the warmest and best selections of doughnuts. Because once they are gone, they shut their doors!
Tonight we are going to Indianapolis to the Colts playoff game! Thank you Colts for giving me weekend plans 🙂 GO HORSE!
