HAI! I haven’t posted in what seems like forever, but my best friend has been visiting this past week and it has been a whirlwind of fun plus oodles and oodles of delicious food (to come in my next post).
We spent the majority of the day on Friday making Disney inspired donuts. The first time around, I filled the donut molds with too much batter and we ended up with huge donuts. We ended up making a second batter and snacked on the donuts we didn’t need.
Recipe makes around 8 donuts
I N G R E D I E N T S :
Donuts (adapted from Sally @ Sally’s Baking Addiction):
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup milk (I used 2%)
1/4 greek yogurt
2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (I used vanilla bean paste)
Candy melts in red, white, brown, blue, yellow, purple, and pink. I bought them on sale for $2.99 a package at Michael’s, or they can be found on Amazon.
I N S T R U C T I O N S :
1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease your donut pan.
2. Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and nutmeg together and set aside.
3. In another bowl, combine the egg, light brown sugar, milk, and greek yogurt till smooth. Add in the melted butter and vanilla.
4. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. Make sure not to overmix.
5. Transfer the donut batter to a plastic freezer bag or pastry bag. Cutting off the corner of the bag, pipe batter into the greased donut pan. Fill them 1/2-2/3 of the way up.
6. Bake for approximately 10 minutes.
7. Remove from the oven and let the donuts cool slightly. Then transfer to a cooling rack.
8. For the decorations, melt the candy melts according to the package directions. Use a sandwich bag with the corner cut off to pipe out Mickey’s yellow buttons, Minnie’s flower, Donald’s red bow and hat, and Daisy’s pink bow. Dip and decorate the donuts as I did or however you wish!
