Mini Baked Funfetti Donuts


I'm constantly getting emails reminding me that such and such day is National [Insert Food] Day.  I usually ignore them, but apparently today is "National Donut Day" and that seems like one that should be recognized!  To be honest, I've never been a huge donut person.  I'd take a chocolate croissant over a donut any day, however I seem to crave the breakfast treat during my pregnancies (I dare you to find a sugary carb-loaded food I don't crave while with child).  So, when Kohl's let me pick out a few items from their Food Network line, I couldn't resist buying this Mini Donut Pan:  

As my 21 month-old daughter says, "cuuuuuuuuuuute."  It is cute, though, right?  I find anything mini adorable, it's a problem.  So even though I don't really love donuts, I now own a mini donut pan.  Jack and I decided to make his teachers treats for his last day of preschool (EVER), so I thought why not utilize my new, precious baking gadget.  I found this recipe for Baked Funfetti Donuts which I thought Jack would have fun with, and fun is what he had...  

One problem: we put too much dough into each donut, creating a puffed ball of sorts, sans holes:  

BUT, after flipping them over and a small amount of carving with a little piping tip, voila, they were back to resembling donuts!  And for those of you wondering if baked donuts taste like the fried assortment, they do.  The touch of nutmeg in this recipe really makes these tiny treats taste just like  cakey, old-fashioned donuts.  Doughnuts?  Donuts?  Whatever.

I'm not normally a doughnut fan either, but funfetti is my favorite kind of cake, so I think I'd eat these by the handful. I love that mini doughnut pan!!

What is it about mini things?? My friend brought me a tiny, tiny pack of matches from London and they were so tiny and cute I almost cried.
