Download and print donut recipes

For these recipes you will need an electric mini-donut baker.
Preheat electric mini-doughnut maker for five minutes while mixing up batter.
Bake donuts approximately two and one half minutes.

Basic general directions for all donut recipes that follow: Mix all the dry ingredients well to incorporate. Make a slight indentation in the dry ingredients, add oil and egg, mix a bit, and then add the milk in small additions, until a fairly thick batter is achieved. Using an oiled/greased tablespoon, fill each donut hole with one tablespoon of the batter. Close the unit and lock into place. Bake for 2-3 minutes. (Time will depend on appliance and recipe.) Remove donuts from the baker and repeat with the remaining batter. Put hot donuts on a wire rack to cool.

Note: Tongs are great to use for removing donuts from the baker, this way you won't burn your fingers.


Note: Mini Donut Baker is available in some culinary shops.
