Easy Christmas Donuts {With BabyCakes}

I made some super yummy, super cute, and super easy donuts for Christmas. These mini donuts would be just perfect for a fun Christmas morning treat! I will share how I made my Easy Christmas Donuts with my BabyCakes mini donut maker!
First of all, let me introduce you to my totally awesome BabyCakes donut maker. It’s easy to use and makes the cutest little donuts.

Here is the recipe that I used:

1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 tbsp cooking oil

Directions:Stir dry ingredients together.  Add egg, vanilla and milk and beat 1 minute with an electric mixer or by hand.  Add oil and continue to beat 1 minute.

Before I put the donut batter into the BabyCakes maker, I oiled it up with some cooking oil and then added some cooking spray. I added more cooking spray after each batch; I didn’t want to have any sticking issues at all!

Once the donut maker was properly oiled and heated up it was time to make the donuts!!! I simply spooned a heaping tablespoon full of batter into each donut mold. I closed the lid and waited about 5-6 minutes until the were slightly golden brown. Then I popped them out with a fork.

When I took them out of the donut maker I placed them on a cooling rack. Then I mixed up a glaze for the donuts, partly to add a sweet topping to the donuts and partly to lock in the freshness.
Here is the recipe for the glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp water
Mix all of the ingredients together. The mixture will be runny. Coat the donuts entirely and then return them to the cooling rack. You may want to place something under the cooling rack to catch the drippings.
If you want, that can be the end. Or you can add some more frosting, sprinkles, or whatever your hearts desire! I decided to add some Christmas sprinkles for the kiddos.
I can not tell you how fluffy and delicious these little donuts are!!! The kids love them. The adults love them.
Are you drooling yet???
I think these would be perfect for Christmas morning!!! If you don’t have a BabyCakes Donut Maker, I highly recommend one. Super easy to use and super fun too! I can’t wait to try out some more flavors and icing combinations!!!
Linking up to these great link parties!!!
