caught in a bad romance

Do you donut?

If you don’t donut, I am not sure we can be friends. Assuming that you are here, on this sugar imploding blog, I am assuming that you donut…or at the very least you like things covered in chocolate and rainbow sprinkles.

Donuts and I have a love affair that would make Nora Roberts jealous. And as much as I wish I could end our bad romance, it was a predetermined destiny. My mother passed down the donut loving gene to me. She had it much worse than I do…she had it so bad she used to buy boxes of donuts and hide them under her bed.

Despite all of my donut lovin’, I have always bought my donuts (except for that one time I made donut holes oh and that other time too). I would love to make them, but the time it takes to make the dough, shape them, fry them, glaze them and then finally eat them…is too much when you have a hangover. And I never want donuts more than when I have a hangover. The solution to this problem? stop drinking so much??

Buy yourself a Babycakes Donut Maker! Actually, you buy two! One for me and one for one of you!

I was skeptical of what this little donut maker claimed to do. Donuts baked in 4 minutes? Shut up.

So when I saw them go on sale (finally!!), I knew it was time to put it’s claim to the test. As soon as I walked in the door I was ripping the packaging off and plugging it in to get heated up. I pulled out the few ingredients I needed and whipped up a batch of batter. I poured the batter into a zip lock baggie and started piping it into the rounds. I closed the lid and counted down the incredible slow, agonizing, 4 minutes…lifted the lid and viola! DONUTS! Freaking donuts! In a total of 10 minutes from when I walked in the door. Could there be anything better?

As you can see, I have made lots of donuts. My favorite so far? I made a Pumpkin Spice Donut with Maple Frosting! I used the recipe for the Sour Cream Donut in the instruction manual, swapped the sour cream for Pumpkin, and added a few pinches of pumpkin pie seasoning. Then I used some leftover maple buttercream to frost them with. I am pretty positive this is what heaven must taste like.
