Strawberry Glazed Mini Doughnuts
The summer sale was on and I found these cute mini doughnut baking tray there, since then I had been wanting to try making mini doughnuts, not that I have ever made the regular ones before.
Each time I watched someone grab a cup of coffee & a brown bag of doughnuts for breakfast at the start of the day,I often wondered. How could any one have that kind of sugar at breakfast time ? Perhaps, it was their sugar fix for the day. Some evenings my kid & me would walk into the donut store closer to home .He would take his time gazing through the glass display and almost each time, he would choose the chocolate donut with sprinkles on top.There is something about the sprinkles that gives it a magical feel, like glitter & fairy dust.Every once in a while, he’d say ,”Amma you should just try one of these, then you will understand what I am talking about !”. I would smile , happy in the knowledge that he is enjoying his donuts. Haven’t had a chance to try one owing to my allergic reaction sto egg and donuts sure have it in them.
Finding the egg substitute in flax seed powder, has been a boon to me in many ways.My baking has taken a new and renewed zeal and interest. I have tried making delicious , cakes, cup cakes , brownies and the works. Now venturing into making egg free doughnuts.YES there is ALWAYS a way, if you are willing to try hard enough !
Did you know they even had a day to celebrate the donuts ? A National Donut day (here in the U.S)!. I had no idea until yesterday, when I chanced upon this information, while searching for this recipe on the net.It is celebrated on the first Friday of the month of June each year. The Donut Day event was created by the Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the men and women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I. In Chicago, the National Doughnut Day is still celebrated as a fundraiser for the Salvation Army.so my timing was perfect!
This is an easy recipe, that took me 20 minutes from start to finish. A yummy treat and a satisfying snack for the kids during summer time when they come back home after all their games & biking.
