There are a couple small appliances in our home that don’t get the attention that they deserve. One is our blender. The other our mini donut maker. I am not the world’s greatest donut baker/maker, just a Momma who likes making things (including food) for her family. I also like to share our favorite recipes as we go along.

After I mix all the ingredients together I place a large Ziploc bag, corner first, into a mug. I then pour my batter into a ziploc bag. This makes it like a piping bag.
This is a great way to simply pour/fill the mini donut maker molds. You can learn from my mistakes. Mistake number one: cutting the hole in my bag too big. This caused our mini donuts to have no holes and a few others to be under cooked.
But don’t cut it too small either because then you won’t be able to get the mix out, or will end up squeezing your bag too hard and popping a hold in it.
This recipe is for plain Jane vanilla donuts. But they are all basically made the same way. Mix, bag, squeeze, close to cook. The mix tends to be thick, which makes for filling the mold in the machine to be super easy and less messy aw well.
The great thing about this donuts is you can have an flavor icing you desire, we chose a maple flavored, homemade, wet/runny enough that I just dipped them in. My version of a Maple Dip from Tim Horton’s.
These are something that your kids can make themselves too without having to worry about them being near a hot oven. Get your kids in the kitchen making a delicious and fun snack for them and their friends.
Simple Mini Donuts
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup low-fat milk
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Mix together well.
- I always pour my batter into a ziploc bag. Place a bottom corner in a large mug.
- Cut off corner of bag. It is a thick batter so take that into consideration when you cut off the corner.
- Fill each donut hole and cook according to the directions of your donut maker.
