Rolo Mini Donut

Rolo® Mini Donut

Hello dear readers!

How are you? Are you excited about fall? Are you already making stews, soups, recipes with pumpkin and squash? I think fall is the best season to cook and bake. It just feels so comforting to smell these dishes.

But these donuts can be made any time (well, you may want to do an exception for heatwaves since you need your oven!).

I think the next picture speak for itself and shows how donuts + chocolate + caramel + Rolos looks and taste good together. Enjoy!

Malted Chocolate Mini Donut

Malted Chocolate Mini Donut

Hello readers!

I hope you had a great week! Today we have donuts to kick off the long weekend (it’s Quebec’s National Holiday on Monday). I’m a big fan of malted chocolate (Whoppers/Maltesers, yes please!) and each recipe including malted milk powder I’ve made so far have been a huge success! These donuts are no exception. Baked donut are just as good as fried ones and much more healthy (or let’s say less unhealthy!). These donuts are very moist and light. And the icing is super chocolatey and delicious. I’m so biased here, sorry 😉

Hello everyone!

I hope you’re having a great week so far!

Here the weather has been so beautiful, sunny and hot, pretty much like an early summer! I found that it boosts up my energy and spirit! And I started baking in summer so it brings back memory and an amazing urge to bake! Good for me, and good for you too 😉

I made some donuts, yeah! They are mini, pink and brown so they are pretty cute! No frying involve (you’ll need a donut pan). The dough isn’t very sweet so you can add a very sugary glaze of your choice.

Enjoy!

Strawberry and Chocolate Donut

Strawberry and Chocolate Mini Donut (baked)
Donut recipe adapted from Buns in the oven
Yield : 24 mini-donut

Donuts:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 6 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  1. Grease two mini donut pans.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 °F.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder and baking soda.
  4. In a small bowl, beat together the vanilla, egg, sour cream, milk, and oil.
  5. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined.
  6. Spoon in each donut form (might be easier if you transfer the dough to a piping bag and pipe into each form). Fill each form half full (else they won’t look much like donuts)
  7. Bake for 8 minutes or until the tops spring back when you touch them.
  8. Let the donuts cool in the pan before glazing.

Strawberry Glaze
I suggest you use the recipe from Cooking classy. For my glaze I changed the recipe a little, adding some strawberry extract, but the result wasn’t really good.
