I hope you guys are well.
Here in New York City, we are battling a heat wave. The temperature is above 90 degrees, but the humidity makes it feel like 100 and above. It’s horrible and disgusting. We’re doing our best to entertain ourselves at home with the AC at full blast.
Enter our newest purchase, the Wilton mini doughnut pan, which we got at AC Moore craft store with a 50 percent coupon. My husband fell in love with this pan along with the savings (the current plan is to get a second pan to make it less time consuming). He tried it out first with Jiffy’s chocolate muffin mix, but he forgot to take pictures. When it was my turn, I tried the raspberry muffin mix and it was definitely a learning experience.
I was able to make two batches (24 total). The first batch I put too much batter in the pan so the muffin/doughnuts came out like little bowls (open on one side, which is cool because you can put something inside for example whipped cream and eat/present it like that or just eat it as is). The second batch I put less batter but I still got some that came out like bowls. It’s a trial and error kind of thing. I’m figuring that with more batches I’ll get the right consistency one day. I’m looking forward to making cake doughnuts, that’s next, and of course finding a good doughnut recipe to try. Duh! In the meantime, these muffin doughnuts were delicious and a big hit with my daughters. I also like that they’re small so consumption can be kept under control.
Take good care all.
Until next time…
