Mini Vanilla Bean Doughnuts

April 21, 2015

The past two weeks have been filled with renovations. I’ve painted, painted and painted some more! I decided to take a little break this past Saturday afternoon and switch gears. I finally used a mini doughnut pan that I had picked up at Sur La Table. It was such a quick and easy dessert. The best part was that I was easily able to adapt a doughnut recipe to use freshly milled flour. They were a little healthier this way but still yummy!

 These are like cake doughnuts. They’re super fun and are really simple to make and decorate! I’m really pleased with the pan and how these little treats turned out. Charlie was over the moon with his little doughnuts!

Happy baking everyone!
