Sunday, I was a woman on a mission.
I made a decision that I was using the baby shower I’m hosting for Ashlee this coming weekend as an excuse to obtain a baking tool I’ve long been coveting:
A donut pan.
Specifically, a mini donut pan.
In my mission, I went to Target, JoAnn’s, Bed Bath & Beyond & Kohls. No donut pan to be found.
So I settled on this little gal:
The Babycakes Donut Maker. For $19.99. At Kohl’s. It was love at first sight.
& of course, I immediately busted her open & started making some chocolate donuts I found in the recipe book. I just had to test her out, right? RIGHT?!
The concept of the mini donut maker is pretty much the same as a waffle iron. Fill ‘er up with batter:
Close the lid for 4-5 minutes to cook:
Place them on a cooling rack & coat in sugar:
& stare at the beauty of your own, homemade mini donuts:
Side note: I ran last night. Outside. In the 90* heat. 3 full miles without stopping. Yes, this summertime treadmill devotee braved the sweltering heat & sweated her ass off for a full 35 minutes.
& you know what? It wasn’t so bad.
