Mini Sugar Donuts (baked, not fried)

Wanna hazard a guess on the size of these donuts?

I'll give you a hint... 8 of these little ones were made from the regular sandwich-maker that fits 2 slices of bread.

The answer: Each little donut is a mere 4 cm in diameter.
These should be called Donut Pops!

I think these are just too cute! Perfect for kids and the young-at-heart :)

Mini Sugar Donuts
Makes about 30 minis.

1½ cups plain flour
½ cup sugar
1½ tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
100g butter, melted
¾ cup milk
1 egg

For dusting:
Castor sugar or snow powder
Cinnamon powder (optional)

Turn on the donut machine to preheat.
Meanwhile, whisk all ingredients together till you get a batter that resembles pancake batter - thick but pourable.

When the donut machine is heated, scoop, pour or pipe batter into the moulds, close the lid and cook for about 2-3 min. (It's inevitable that the bottom half will be browner than the top.) When donuts are a nice golden brown on either side, remove from moulds and cool them on a wire rack.

When donuts have cooled, combine sugar and cinnamon powder in a plastic bag, dump in some donuts and shake till they are coated with enough sugary goodness to your liking.

Ready for some mini donuts and a cuppa coffee?
