Vanilla Mini Doughnuts

Screen Shot 2015-03-28 at 12.00.41 AM

I finally caved and bought a mini doughnut pan and along with the madeline pan that I bought a few weeks ago, it was probably one of the best decisions that I made this year.  I had only ever made fried doughnuts, so I used my Barefoot Contessa Foolproof cookbook for some help.  She had a delicious recipe for cinnamon baked doughnuts. I didn’t feel like putting cinnamon or nutmeg in the batter though and ended up tweaking it a bit.  Additionally, instead of dunking the doughnuts in cinnamon sugar, I made some pretty pastel doughnut glazes and covered some in sprinkles.  They were absolutely delicious and adorable, which also made them very dangerous because they’re small and you think nothing of popping 5 or 10 into your mouth…

This recipe will make about 50 doughnuts, so feel free to cut it in half or so to make less or double it to make more.

Let’s get started!

この前ミニドーナッツの肩を買いました。ドーナッツは揚げるととても美味しと思いますが、焼いても美味しいよ!このミニドーナッツはとても可愛くて、はまってしまいました。ミニドーナッツを使ったことが無かったので、私の大好きな料理人Ina Gartenって言うチェフのレシピを使ってみました。Ina Gartenは、アメリカのFood NetworkのチャンネルのBarefoot Contessaと言うテレビ番組のチェフです。彼女の料理本をお姉さんから貰ったので、彼女の焼きドーナッツのレシピを使いました。でも、砂糖の量があまりにも多っかたので、少し控え目にしました。ドーナッツは自分で作ったアイシングとキャンディチップでデコレーションしました。

-2 cups AP flour

-3/4 cup granulated sugar

-2 tsp baking powder

-1/2 tsp kosher salt

-1 egg

-1 1/4 cup milk

-2 tbsp melted unsalted butter

-2 tsp vanilla extract

Doughnut glaze

-3 tbsp milk

-1/2 cup powdered sugar

-Food coloring


-Chocolate ganache


-294 g  強力粉

-150g グラニュー糖

-2 g ベーキングパウダー

-1 g 塩

-1 卵

-300 ml 牛乳

-18 g 無塩バター

-6 g バニラエッセンス


-27 g 牛乳

-40 g 粉砂糖




  1. Mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
  2. Mix together the milk, melted butter and egg until combined.  Pour that over the dry ingredients, add the vanilla and mix until combined.
  3. Spray the mini doughnut pan with non-stick spray and spoon the batter into the pans until they’re about three quarters full.
  4. Bake at 350ºF for 6-8 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Transfer the doughnuts onto a wire rack to cool and repeat steps 3 and 4 until all the batter is gone (this batter made about 4 to 5 trays of the mini doughnuts).
  6. For the glaze, mix together the powdered sugar and milk until you reach your desired consistency. Add more milk to thin the icing and more powdered sugar to thicken. Icing glaze that’s too thin will simply soak into the doughnut or drip off.  I found that the best consistency is a slightly thick icing glaze that’s will hold a swirl for a few seconds when you draw a pattern into the icing with a fork or a chopstick. To add color, simply tip the tip of a toothpick into some food coloring and mix in the color a bit at a time to create the desired shade.
  7. Dip the doughnuts into the icing glaze and place on a wire rack to allow the icing to set.  You can also add sprinkles if you so desire.


  1. 溶かしたバター、牛乳、バニラと卵をよくかき混ぜます。
  2. ボウルに強力粉、砂糖、塩とベーキングパウダーをよく混ぜます。ボウルに牛乳を加え、またよく混ぜます。
  3. ミニドーナッツの肩にドーナッツがくっつかないよう肩にバターを塗り(または、スプレーする)。ドーナッツの生地を型にれます。ドーナッツの肩に入れすぎないように注意。
  4. オーブンを170ºC予熱で温め、ドーナッツを6分から7分焼きます。竹串で刺して生地が付いてこなければ完成。
  5. 牛乳と粉砂糖をよく混ぜアイシングを作ります。ゆるすぎたら粉砂糖を加え、固すぎたら牛乳を加えます。ドーナッツのアイシングは、ゆるすぎたらドーナッツにしみ込むので注意。色素をフードカラーリングを使いながら色をつけます。パステルな色を作る場合、爪楊枝に少しフードカラーリングをつけて、よくアイシングに混ぜます。
  6. 出来上がったドーナッツにアイシングをつけて、仕上げにキャンディチップをふりかけます。

I know I’ll definitely be making more doughnuts soon!

Hugs and puppies!
