I don’t know about you, but we’re so over cupcakes. Thankfully, pastry chefs are turning their attention to other baked creations, like pies and donuts. It doesn’t get much better than freshly fried dough, sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar or stuffed with raspberry jelly. Of course, it’s probably not a good idea to make a daily habit of fried donuts, which is why we’re obsessed with Babycakes’ baked donuts. But unless you happen to live near the Babycakes shop in New York or Los Angeles, you’re stuck with the fried variety.
So we decided to make our own.
We found the Mini Donut Factory (pictured right), which bakes, not fries, your donuts for you. Literally. Making donuts at home usually requires special pans and donut cutters, but with the donut maker, all you have to do is make the batter. You can make up to six donuts at a time, or even one, in under four minutes. It also has a non-stick surface, so it’s very easy to clean.
That’s not the best part. The best part is that you can make whatever cakey creations you’re craving. You can heat up a little peanut butter and drizzle it over the top or dunk them in chocolate or even nutella. The possibilities are endless.
