Anyway a couple days after Christmas we decided to give his Babycakes doughnut maker a whirl. Since this was the first time making it I went for ease and busted into the Babycakes mix Donx had also received. Honestly it couldn't have been easier!
|While the doughnuts were still warm, not hot but warm, we dunked one side in a bowl of 1/3c of melted butter and then into a bowl of the cinnamon sugar topping then placed it on a cooling rack|
|The mix made about 2 dozen doughnuts and each doughnut was topped with the yummy cinnamon sugar topping. It didn't take to long to cool and when we had all 2 dozen lined up on the counter it was hard to wait.|
|Of course, Donx got the first bite. He was excited and could not believe how quick and easy it was to make his own doughnuts. He enjoyed that he got the first pick and was surprised at how delicious it turned out. He scarfed a couple of doughnuts that night and eagerly flipped through his cookbook for even more ideas. Personally, I'd like to make a maple bacon doughnut and I believe his choice is a chocolate glazed doughnut. I'm not going to complain I'd be just as happy with his choice and i'm sure he would feel the same about mine.|
All in all, if you have kids that like to help out in the kitchen this is a great tool. It's super easy allowing your child to do a majority of the mixing (and piping in of the dough if they are older and have control of their motions) but the sense of accomplishment they feel when that first batch is completed is so fun to witness. My son loves this little doughnut maker and can't wait to make more!
