I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Holstein Housewares. I received product samples to facilitate this post well as promotional to thank me for my participation.
Whenever Jason leaves for work, he always tells the kids he’s “going to make the doughnuts”. Siella has since taken this literally and every time he returns home, she wants to know where the doughnuts are. To “bring home the donuts‘” upon return from super long travel, Jason takes the kids on a Saturday morning for a little munchkin at a local doughnut shop. It’s totally their thing together, and its super cute.
With Valentine’s Day just days away, I pondered an activity I could do with the kids. We’ve made cupcakes and other treats so many times that when I saw this mini doughnut maker by Holstein Housewares. I immediately had to have it. When it arrived and the baking began, the first thing Siella said was that she was going to make doughnuts for her daddy, this time.
The Doughnut Maker came with a recipe booklet complete with photos, so the kids were able to decide what flavors we were going to make. The kids chose pumpkin doughnuts, but I opted for whole wheat flour and omitted the chocolate chips, to make our treats healthier. With the Doughnut Maker, there is no deep frying, so you’re already a step ahead.
I’m sure it’s clear from the pics, but Siella absolutely loves to pretend play being a chef, so she insisted on helping me with the first batch, and those to follow.
With no preheating dirty pans or messy clean ups, I have to say using the Holstein Doughnut Maker was so easy to use. It’s basically fool proof plug it in, mix up the ingredients, pour into the batter into each of the doughnut slot, and set the timer for 7 minutes. That’s it! Its super fast, and each batch makes at least 40+ doughnuts.
Once the doughnuts cooled off, we dressed each with some icing, and topped them off with red sprinkles. The kids will be taking these into school on Friday for Valentine’s treats for everyone, and Siella made Daddy a special doughnut, that he will be eating for breakfast, when he gets back from LA tomorrow.
I wonder which flavor to make next! Happy Valentine’s Day! xx
