Pinned It, Made It Mondays: Mini Donuts
Awhile ago, I pinned this from Sprinkle Bakes, the beautiful dessert/baking blog Heather Baird keeps. It's a fantastic blog although every time I visit it I find myself in my kitchen looking for something delicious to bake. (In other words: Stay away if you are dieting!) Not only are her desserts amazing, her photography is gorgeous, as well.
So, here is a picture of her Vanilla Bean Baby Doughnuts:

Darling, right? I mean, who doesn't love donuts, and who doesn't love all things mini??? I immediately placed a mini donut pan in my Amazon cart, but because a mini donut pan isn't exactly the needed item for a kitchen (Alton Brown would call it a uni-tasker), it stayed in the cart. Then, on Friday, my mom and I were browsing at Sur Le Table and I found one! I bought it and the next morning made these:
I think have a new favorite treat for brunches and showers everywhere! And here is my attempt to completely copy her idea:
I used the recipe from Williams-Sonoma, which I am sharing because I know you all will go and buy one of these pans this very moment! Even if you don't, this is a pretty great recipe for a light cake donut, which you could bake in anything small.
