Baked mini doughnuts

I am a big kitchen gadgets buyer – among the things that I buy quite often are trays. I guess this shows its face especially when I buy special trays – like the ones for macarons (which by the way, I used only once and decided that they are useless) or for madeleines (this one is quite good, unfortunately, I do not know its current location after the last time I moved).
The doughnut baking tray I bought a couple of months ago thinking that I will start making only baked doughnuts instead of the fried ones … as if I was making doughnuts every other day.

In terms of the result I can say that they are good – something in between a muffin and a fried doughnut. I will definitely repeat it, especially if I am not in the mood of making the classic doughnuts.

Enjoy it with a smile! 🙂
