Baked in a press rather than fried, these fluffy and rich bite-sized homemade donuts are a healthier way to satisfy your donut cravings!
Classic Bite-Sized Donuts
Being home all the time now we’re finding ourselves constantly looking for ways to satisfy the kids’ sweet teeth without turning to too much candy. We’re also going to the grocery store less often – the baked goods run out pretty quickly!
In addition to the best chocolate chip cookies around, we are baking these delicious bite-sized donuts almost every other day. They use the same kid-approved recipe as our yummy waffle cookies.
One batch makes about two dozen bite-sized donuts. We’ve been using a 6-compartment donut press – this 12-donut press would make the job much quicker!
Ingredients Needed for Making Bite-Sized Homemade Donuts:
- 4 eggs
- 1 ¼ cup sugar
- 1 cup oil
- ½ cup milk
- 1 packet vanilla sugar
- 1 ½ tsp baking powder
- 3 cups flour
How to Make Homemade Donuts:
Combine baking powder with flour.
In a stand mixer (we can’t bake without our KitchenAid mixer!) beat eggs, sugar and vanilla sugar until light and fluffy (about 4-5 minutes).
Slowly add in oil and mix on low.
Slowly add in flour mixture, alternating with milk.
Enjoy them just like that, or roll them into sugar while they’re still hot.
These homemade donuts do-nut last around here very long! The kids (OK maybe the mamas too) gobble them up pretty quickly.
