Valentine’s dessert recipe
It is probably safe to say that I am a little infatuated with all things Valentine’s Day.
There is just something about cute little hearts and Valentine’s decorations that I simply cannot resist.
And I also cannot resist these little guys all decked out in Valentine’s sprinkles.
Basic Mini Doughnuts
(Adapted from here)
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
½ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
½ teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Earth Balance
1/2 cup confectioners powdered sugar (mix 1 tablespoon cocoa powder for chocolate icing)
1 tablespoon almond milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Make a well in the center. Whisk in the wet ingredients until mixture forms a smooth batter. Transfer to a pitcher or fabric piping bag. Spray doughnut pan with cooking oil. Fill pan with batter. Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes (until doughnuts appear lightly browned). Let cool on wire rack before decorating.
These are so fun and festive, aren’t they?
We’re off to the circus tonight…where I must confront my lifelong fear of clowns.
Have a Happy Saturday!
