Listen mini donuts, you’re not fooling me. You may appear all little and cute but in reality you just pop into my mouth easier. Makes it pretty convenient to keep going back for more. Ok, just one more.
I bought this mini donut pan last month while I was on a weekend getaway with my daughter. Stuffed it into my hoarder baking pan cupboard and forgot about it until I was thinking about what to do with some pumpkin in the fridge.
Can it be January already? I feel like I’m a bit out of control with the pumpkin this year.
I guess this is what happens when you don’t use it all year. Fall rolls around and I’m all over it!
It’s hard not to make mini donuts when they’re this easy. Using a piping bag gets the job done in no time!
