Baby Doughnuts

Team Shambles

There is about a week in between our pastry courses, and we really don’t get to bake together all that frequently, so we planned to tackle a couple other baking projects. Roopa recently got a mini-doughnut pan so this was the perfect opportunity to try it out! 

There are several doughnut recipes on Sprinkle Bakes, one of our favourite baking blogs. We picked one specifically for mini-doughnuts.

Roopa sometimes makes poor choices with respect to colour…
