Mini Donuts

Mini donuts are the best! Kaili says as I type this. She is on my lap dictating my words, so it’s all her fault, especially when you are thinking about donuts in bed. Kaili came home from school one day and said “mom, we made mini donuts!” And I said, “that’s awesome!” ” But wait, when did you make donuts?” She walked me through what I needed and it turned out, donut pans were a biggy.

The next morning I looked up a donut recipe, the only thing we were missing was a donut pan, just as Kaili said. Shit, I hate when the 8 year old is right!

Thanks to the amazing delivery services, we had our new silicone donut pans within days. I bought these and for the price, they are great. Just make sure to put the donut pans on a cookie sheet or they will fold on you and you will lose your donuts to the floor.

I won’t lie, I haven’t made donuts before. So here we are with new donut pans and a recipe I found… Kaili assured me it looked A-Ok.

So, as the girls ate dinner, I baked the donuts allowing time for them to cool before the frosting commenced.
