My sister is the best and she always sends me the greatest gifts! She recently sent me a Mini Donut Pan like this one from Stonewall Kitchen and it’s adorable. I mean who doesn’t love all things tiny and cute? More importantly, who doesn’t love donuts?!
The kids were so excited about the idea of having freshly made donuts whenever they wanted them. Unfortunately for them, it was their bedtime when I opened up my gift, so they had to wait. With visions of cinnamon cake donuts dancing in their heads, they happily went off to bed. But not without making me promise I would make them homemade donuts the very next morning.
When I agreed to their request, I had no idea my daughter would be crawling into our bed at 5:30 AM the next morning just so I could make her some special donuts! So I groggily took her hand and we stumbled down the stairs together. I flipped on the coffee pot and we started our (very) early morning making some donuts.
I couldn’t believe how quick and easy they were to make – even at that hour of the morning. Before we knew it, my daughter and I had made a platter piled high with mini donuts before my husband and son even made it out of their beds!
