I only eat donuts with sprinkles.

No really. What’s the point of eating a donut if it isn’t covered in pretty sprinkles? 

Throughout my life I’ve always wondered HOW the sprinkled donut could be left in the box past the first person. 

Anyways. I went through a stage when I LOVED donuts. The phase has passed and I’ve traded donuts for Whole Grain Cheerios, but they still have a soft spot in my heart. During this donut stage I received a mini donut maker one Christmas. I am in the process of moving, so going through all of my belongings and deciding what to keep. I found the donut maker. The box’s copyright is from 1995. 1995! I only ever remember using it once. And of course, the instructions are missing 🙂

My dad did some Googling and found some recipes, so I made breakfast for the Ray House. I would post the recipes, but they’re kinda pointless without the donut maker, unless you have your own, and in that case, go Google your own recipes. I made “traditional” donuts, but used half white and half wheat flour and Splenda. To make up for it, I covered my donuts in frosting, melted chocolate chips, low fat maple syrup and honey. Oh, and for the last 10 or so, I added some cocoa powder to make the dough chocolatey. 

 

Theyre cooking!

So photogenic. As Tyra would say, these donuts are smiling with their eyes
