Mmmm....Doughnuts

It is time for another edition of Dessert Club! (read all about it here) We meet every month, but some months I forget to take pictures because we are in deep conversation or busy eating preparing dessert. I love the ladies in our Dessert Club, we are all moms of kids ranging in age from 10 months to 16 years old. We have great chats and lots of laughs. Did I mention wine, we have lots of wine too!

This month we made Ina Garten's Cinnamon Baked Doughnuts. I think making doughnuts has been on our wish list for a year!




We used two sizes of doughnut pans found here and here.  We wanted the standard size and of course cute mini doughnuts. They were easy to make, we just stuck to the recipe. We made a chocolate glaze and a traditional glaze. We also had nuts, coconut, and sprinkles for toppings. For the mini doughnuts, some were covered in powered sugar and some we dipped in butter (yes!) and rolled them in a cinnamon sugar mixture.



You can see our finished product! They were fun to make and to decorate. In my opinion they were good, but not the best. They seemed pretty dense. If we ever attempt doughnuts again I think we will roll out dough and cut them out so we can have doughnut holes, and then fry them up! Have you ever made homemade doughnuts? Maybe you prefer stopping by Dunkin Donuts for your fix. We recently got a Voodoo Doughnut in Denver. It is so popular the line is ALWAYS out the door and down the block. I am waiting patiently for the line to shorten! I cant wait to try them.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.
