These are really good. Yes they are a muffin but you can bake them in a doughnut pan. I just dipped the tops in cinnamon and butter. Easier cleanup. I made 6 large dougnut muffins and 3 small but overfilled my pans a bit so I could probably get a few more next time. I will definitely make again. My kids loved them and even I (muffin hater) liked them.
Update: These were great when I made them, but the next day they were dry and the glaze soaked in them. I had to throw them away. So if you make them, eat them the same day. I'm going to look for another recipe.
This is the exact same recipe I received with my mini electric doughnut maker. A few tips I learned: using my mini doughnut maker they baked in 2 minutes. Any more time than that and they are tough. The recipe made about 43 minis. The icing I made was: 1 cup powdered sugar (sifted for lumps), 2 tablespoons of hot water and 1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract. If using pure vanilla and/or pure almond extracts, I start out with less and add more if I need to. I tinted half with one drop of red food coloring to make pink and the other half I left plain. This was a perfect amount of glaze/icing for this recipe. Only dip about 4 doughnuts and then add the sprinkles. Otherwise the icing hardens and the sprinkles fall off. I found out the hard way. :) I did add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. They turned out very pretty. Oh, if you are using an electric mini doughnut maker, use about 1 teaspoon of batter. When you close the lid, they will turn into doughnuts. I just used a chop stick to remake the hole in the center. Easier than trying to miss the middle. LOL
these turned out very well, not sure what I was thinking of at the time I made this but by mistake I used 1/2 cup butter instead of 6 tablespoons and they still turned out well, I also added in 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to the batter, they are delicious, thanks for posting DG, this was made for KK's forum tag
