After a long break - Mini Baked Donuts

Been itching since I was back last Thursday, thinking what I wanna bake and remembered that I need to bake donuts for my gal as she really likes them. She always asked me to get 1 from the bakery near her school everyday when I fetch her from school. Seriously, I didn't really liked that. First, it is deep-fried and you don't know hw many times they will reuse the oil. Secondly, it cost $1+ for a donut, but it is the normal standard size you see from outside. But still, as you bake at home and buy the ingredients, you know very well it is still cheaper and HEALTHIER to make your own.

So I was searching for a few version and today I decided to try this recipe from Angela as it is using pancake batter so it should be quite fail-proof. It is very simple to mix, and you don't even need a mixer. You practically weigh the dry ingredients, mix a little then add the wet ingredients 1 by 1 and you whisk it well. Rest it for 15-30mins and you can preheat the oven and bake them. And yes, I over the 30mins as I was playing games on iPad. I left it for almost 45mins. So my end donuts, it is very chubby!!

I managed to yield 12 mini chubby donuts, and the taste is like mini pancake donuts to me. Soft and not too dry. I gave 4 away and give the kids 1 each for snacks and supper. Hubby had 1 and I am keeping 2 for tml to test how the donut can stay soft and moist. =)
