    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease miniature muffin cups or line with paper liners.

    not delicious i rather them fried  -  25 Jan 2017


    I made these in normal sized muffin tins and it made 6. However, they did not hold their shape and ended up like a cupcakes. Tasted fine. We used a cutter for the middle:-)  -  09 Apr 2016


    I used a mini-doughnut pan, and the piping bag really is the way to go (if you have one). My doughnuts were cooked at 9 minutes, so start checking early. I know oven temps vary, but these are small, and it wouldn't take much for them to overbake and dry out. I wondered if the sugar mixture would stick, since many other recipes call for you to first dip them in melted butter...well, it did! I would think coating them while the muffins are still warm is key, since they still have a little moisture on the outside, still steaming a bit. Thanks, authenticnut, we enjoyed your mini doughnuts!  -  06 May 2015  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
