Jacqueline's Aunty Laurie gave her a mini-donut maker for Christmas.  Today we tried it for the first time.  Jacqueline loved using the mini spatula to spoon the batter into the donut maker.  She was so proud of herself when the donuts came out a nice golden brown.  Here is the recipe we used.


1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
2/3 cup butter, softened


1.  Stir dry ingredients in large bowl.
2.  Add wet ingredients and beat until thick, smooth and creamy.
3.  Preheat donut maker for 4 to 5 minutes.  Spoon 2 teaspoons of batter into each donut mould.
4.  Cook for 2 minutes or until golden brown.
5.  Remove and place on cooling rack.
6.  Makes 24 donuts.


Brush donuts with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture. Or make a glaze using:

1 cup butter
1 teaspoon butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon hot water
2 teaspoons cocoa
