Miniature Donuts Recipe


I finished making these donuts, took a final photo and walked out of the kitchen leaving the donuts on the counter. When I returned they were gone! It appears we have a mouse! A very well fed mouse. Imagine its delight at finding a mini sized kitchen with cute freshly prepared food. If only I was filming. As cute as it sounds a mouse running free in my kitchen is not hygienic so I have had to set up some traps to deal with that issue. Perhaps I should actually get a tiny pet and let it eat the finished food.

Donut Recipe

Makes 14
4 cups or 640g (22.58 ounces) flour, plain or all purpose
60g (2.12 ounces) or 1/4 cup sugar

Add all the wet ingredients in to the bowl followed by the dry ingredients. Knead the mixture until it becomes elastic. You can use a stand mixer with a dough hook for about 5 minutes or a bread machine set to dough. If kneading by hand you will need to keep kneading for about 8 minutes.

Place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap and stand in a warm place until it doubles in size. Punch it down, roll out and cut donut shapes. Place onto non-stick baking paper baking paper and allow to rise a second time.

Heat up the oil to 375F (190.56 degrees Celsius) and deep fry your donuts, flipping them over once the underside is golden brown. Watch the full-sized donut video to see what happens if you overheat your oil.

    Hi Anne, I’d not been able to follow ur channel for almost a month now because I was relocating. Just saw your giant m & m video last night and heard about James. U’ve certainly been through so much! And as a mother especially, I know how difficult it must be. I hope James is well now. We continue to pray for him. All the best my dear! God bless u all! 🙂

    • THanks Aliya, James is getting stronger. Thank you for you prayers.

    Hi I love baking and cooking and your channel inspires me to create dessert-themed sewing patterns and drawings to share with my friends and when I am older I wish to visit Australia from Wales to experience different countries for inspirational purposes. However I would not like to find any spiders there as I have major arachnophobia. Also could you make some mini apple crumble please.

    Hello Ann!

    I’m not sure if you’ll check this comment, but I’m in urgent need of help!
    Tomorrow, a guest will be arriving here who’ll be leaving soon for Canada to bring back is wife and a new-born child. So, before he leaves, I want to make something indulgent for him. Also, the dessert will be served AFTER dinner, so his stomach will be a little heavy already. A little help, please? It’d be great if you replied!

    Thank you
