Did ya miss me??? Probably not…. Anyway, lots of cooking has been going on, but not much time for blogging. To get myself back into things, here is a recipe. Seriously these things are so good. And pretty easy too. Just be sure your mini donut pan is nicely oiled or you will end up with a big pile of donut crumbs. The very first recipe of donuts I made stuck so badly I had to pick them out with a spoon =(
I made two other varieties before these, but the pictures were deleted. Good excuse to make more wouldn’t ya say?
1.5 cups flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
One recipe egg replacer * or Ener-G equivalent to 2 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup milk
2 TB Earth Balance-melted
Combine first four ingredients. In separate bowl, mix ‘eggs’, sugar and vanilla until thick. Alternately pour sugar mixture and milk into flour mixture. Mix until smooth and soft. Spray mini donut pan lightly with cooking oil, fill 2/3 full of batter. The batter is really thick, so the easiest way to do this is to fill a sandwich bag with the batter and squeeze it into the pan. Otherwise it’s just a huge mess…. Bake 8-9 minutes (NO longer! They will get dry). Repeat until batter is gone.
Now the fun part. Fill a plastic bag or RubberMaid container with about 1.5-2 cups powdered sugar. Put in three or so donuts and shake until fully covered. Dust a little bit of the sugar off.
You could also glaze these with a powdered sugar-water glaze, but the powdered sugar by itself is so much more fun.
Makes about 28-30.
*Egg Replacer (I forgot this first time around…)
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
