Doughnut Maker

As some of you know, in addition to this blog, I also write for Chickens in the Road, a country living blog by Suzanne McMinn.   You might have already seen it listed in my sidebar.   If you haven't already, please check it out:   Chickens in the Road

Once a month, Suzanne does a giveaway to one of her blog contributers and last month I was excited to be the winner of this doughnut maker.


Pretty, huh!  I especially like the sprinkles on top.

The girls, especially K2, were excited to try it out right away, so I turned them loose and they decided to make brownies in the doughnut maker. 




Brilliant!

They started with their favorite brownie recipe.

It didn't take long to figure out that it was much easier to pipe the batter in than it was to spoon it in.   K2 pulled out her Dessert Decorator Plus, by Wilton and filled it up. 



Then she piped the batter into the doughnut maker.

It generally takes 6 minutes to bake doughnuts, but the brownies took a bit longer.

Make sure you pipe them full - up to the edge.  They'll rise into the top spaces just fine.

Let them bake for 8 minutes and Ta-DA!


Brownies!
With crispy edges all over!

Notice that one in the back with the slump?   That's one that wasn't filled all the way.

Delish!     Thank you SO MUCH, Suzanne for this wonderful new tool!

Tomorrow - carrot cake doughnuts with cream cheese glaze!   Stay tuned for the recipe.
