Donut Sunday

April 6, 2011

One of the best things about families are the traditions that can be made. My(Amy) family started 'Donut Sunday' a year ago due to my daughter's obsession with donuts and sprinkles. So just before bed every Saturday night she reminds my husband and I, "Tomorrow is donut Sunday!" and then goes on to tell us which kind of donut she will be picking. It is the little things in life that mean the most!

So recently while doing our daily Facebook feeds, I saw that Daily Grommet was featuring a new line of bakeware called Babycakes. If you have not heard of Daily Grommet it is an online marketplace where you can discover and buy inventive, new products, watch video reviews, and get to know the people behind these up-and-coming businesses. Babycakes countertop appliances come in a variety of your favorite treats such as, the Mini Cupcake maker, the Cake Pop maker, the Whoopie Pie maker and the one that sold me was the Donut maker!! So, I bought one and could not wait to try it out on our first 'Donut Sunday at home'!

I love the idea behind these machines! For the donut machine in particular, you can make 6 donuts in 4 minutes!! Perfect! So, we invited a few of our friends over to share donut Sunday with us! I thought of making this Sunday more of a decorating donut Sunday. So we set out some plates and bowls with different toppings for the kids to decorate their donuts. I love that you can be creative with everything about this machine, from the type of donut, to the flavors of frosting's, to the kinds of toppings! Of course the topping of choice were sprinkles, and lots of them!! Just a little side note, how great would this idea be for a kids birthday party??? My wheels are spinning on this one!

I used the recipe book that was included and made the maple glazed applesauce donuts. I poured the batter into a plastic bag, cut the tip and filled each tray with the batter. So easy! And in 4 minutes we had these fluffy little guys!!




Once the donuts were done the kids were ready to dip their mini's into the maple glaze!



We let them go crazy with the sprinkles!

Why not?




So pretty right? They almost look professional!



The kids had a great time decorating and spending the morning together. The only bad thing about this machine is that you cannot eat just one!!! My donut Sunday consisted of at least 4! I am loving this new tradition!

  1. Amy, I just love seeing how this Mini Donut maker has helped in creating new family traditions. Your Donut Sunday looks like so much fun! Thank you for sharing your pictures. My wheels are spinning now (you are right, so many options!) .... thinking a Donut Work Day is in order. Maybe we can take turns whipping these up at our Daily Grommet headquarters :).
