I have been on a donut kick lately. Not really eating them, but making them. Paul had a beer brewing event he needed to go to for the whole day soon, so I thought I would make a treat for the 1 1/2 hour drive with a friend. These turned out a lot better than I had expected. The kids liked the taste I gave them and I needed to hide the rest so there we some left for the trip.
2 tsp white vinegar
1 1/3 cup half & half
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
5 tbsp olive oil
2 cup all purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup powdered sugar
Mix everything together (excluding the powdered sugar) and mix well. Put about a tablespoon of batter into a Babycake maker (or you could bake in the oven at about 375°F for 12 minutes or until golden brown). I gave them about 4 -5 minutes to cook in the Babycakes maker. Toss immediately in the powdered sugar. Now…hide them until you everyone is ready to eat them. Otherwise, you may not share.
The batch make 60 donut holes for 2 smartpoints each.
UPDATE – I just made these with almond milk and 3/4 cup sugar and they turned out well and 2 donuts for 3 point. I also skipped the powdered sugar coating and made a frosting on the side for the kids.
I also didn’t count the powdered sugar in the recipe. This recipe was originally from Chocolate Covered Katie.
