Baked Mini Doughnuts

Baked mini doughnuts
I’ve professed my love of all things mini before… like here, here, and here. But love takes on an all new meaning with these delicious baked mini doughnuts. Little halo’s of cinnamony, sugary goodness. You just can’t go wrong.
Seriously…
Did you look at that picture?
I’m not gonna say that these are good for you, but the fact that they are baked to perfection certainly makes them better than your typical fried up carnival variety. So you can indulge a little more guilt free, which is good, because you’ll definitely be eating more than just a couple.
I picked up an electric doughnut maker a while back, and have finally gotten around to taking it out of the box (in other news, I also have an unopened mini doughnut pan, and apparently a kitchen gadget shopping problem…), and let me tell you, if I had of realized how easy to use this thing was, I’d have been eating homemade doughnuts for months.
Don’t worry, I fully intend on quickly making up for lost time!
The recipe is quick and easy, and the results are amazing! I suggest you go make these, stat!
