Cinnamon Bun Mini Donuts

These donuts were my first attempt at using my new Bella Mini Donut maker.  I picked a recipe from Averie Cooks for ‘Baked Cinnamon Bun Dunuts w/ Vanilla Cream Cheese Glaze’.  Please check out her post for the recipe and baking instructions for these and so many more yummy treats!

I made just a tiny adjustment in using unsweetened Almond milk with just a drop of apple cider vinegar in place of the buttermilk. And I doubled the cinnamon to 1 tsp. The rest of the recipe is the same for the donuts.
The were beyond delicious.  Spicy, cakey, mildly sweet.
I also changed the glaze to be more dairy free.
The glaze I used here was 3 Tbs. of Cookie Dough Butter (from Trader Joe’s) softened, mixed with 1 dropper full of Vanilla Stevia and 1 Tbs. of melted Coconut Oil for the glaze.  I also sprinkled them with Cinnamon Sugar after they had been dipped in the glaze.

The Mini Donut maker I used from Bella I purchased at Target for $19.99.  It worked okay but it will take some getting used to how fast the donuts cook.

This recipe made 18 mini donuts, just right to be eaten up in a few days.  I had to stay right with it though and cut the cooking time based on lifting the lid and checking how they were doing.  The 3 batches I did for these each took less than 2 minutes to cook.  Averie has suggested in her recipe not to overbake so I did cut off the cooker as soon as they looked cooked on the edges.  They turned out just perfect thanks to a wonderful recipe just tweaked ever so slightly to be non dairy.

definitely a keeper!

Thanks Averie, Thanks Bella!

      Hey Averie, it’s actaully a post from months ago but I’m in the process of transfering my Blogger site over to WordPress.
      Is it notifying you because of the links to Averie Cooks? So sorry! I can delete the links before posting on wordpress so it won’t bother you each time.
      I know I have a lot of links to your site….SORRY 🙁
