mini chocolate donuts

It's a beautiful summer morning here.  I love the light in the kitchen.

Sam has been wanting to make donuts.  Today is the day!

After searching Pinterest for the easiest way to make these, here's what I found:

Cake Mix Donuts
1 box cake mix
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/2 cup milk

Mix everything in a bowl (it's going to be a thick batter) and then put it all in a gallon ziplock bag.  Cut a VERY SMALL corner off.  Now go! Fill up your heated donut maker, and let the magic begin! You'll want to cook these until the are a little hard or crunchy - if they feel springy like cake, cook them longer.  The glaze works better when they are really done.

Oh yea. The glaze.

Glaze Frosting
1/4 cup milk
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla (optional)

Mix everything in a small bowl.  You can make this thicker by adding more powdered sugar, but I like the thin glaze.  Dunk your donuts in, and let them cool a bit.  Or eat them hot.  It's your party.

Today we used a chocolate cake mix, but it really does work with any flavor, so go crazy.  But be warned - this makes a LOT of little donuts.

You're welcome.
