Loving Babycakes Mini Donuts!

Otis making donuts at How we Montessori

Today was almost magical. It was so warm (around 30 degrees celcius) and a public holiday, yes on a Wednesday! And we made one of our favourite foods - donuts! We actually made mini donuts, these are much smaller than they look. But they are a lot of fun to make and to decorate! We are using and loving the Babycakes Mini Donut Maker.

You can see Otis using the donut maker above! We used the recipe below but there are also recipes in the instruction booklet. 

Mini Donuts


1 ½ cups self-raising flour

½ cup caster sugar (Otis may add a touch more!)

125g softened butter (room temp)

1 egg

¾ cup milk

1-2 drops vanilla


In a large bowl mix flour and caster sugar. Add butter, egg, milk, and vanilla. Use an electric beater to beat until the mixture is thick and smooth. Preheat Babycakes Mini Donut maker. Put mixture into a pastry bag (or plastic food-grade bag with the corner cut off) and pour evenly into each donut mould. Bake in donut maker for 1-2 minutes. Remove donuts from donut maker and place on a cooling rack to cool and then decorate! Makes around 24 mini donuts. 

We burned our first sets of donuts, so be careful, it only takes 1-2 minutes to cook, don't leave them unsupervised.

It was intentionally a bit of a free for all in the decorating department. It's where the fun is!

These would be so good for playdates or for birthday parties. Perfection! 

For Australian readers I purchased our Babycakes Mini Donut Maker in the US, I couldn't find anything similar in Australia and it was so affordable with fantastic shipping, we already had an international power plug/converter so we were happy with the US version.
