SPRINKLES! I FORGOT SPRINKLES! Part of this whole thing was that I was craving a white glazed doughnut with rainbow sprinkles. Well that and … does anyone remember the little mini doughnut factory kiosks in the mall? YEAH, I wanted some of those too. Well. I totally forgot to put sprinkles on the doughnuts! Oh well. I am sure I can find another occasion to make these. What? Today is a day of the week ending in “Y” PERFECT! I’ll make doughnuts!
These were delicious. The dough wasn’t overly sweet, and not at all cakey, very light, scrumptious with the toppings. That was exactly what I was going for. The glaze was delicious, bringing to mind Krispy Kreme doughnuts. We made 28 whole doughnuts in total. You will have more if you make doughnut holes too. But there were only four of us for the little gathering on Sunday nights. There were three doughnuts left. It was because I was using them for photography. WE ATE 25 DOUGHNUTS!!! My husband pulled the puppy eyes and got the last three for breakfast.
Okay. So I have taken into account the temperature and time that was wonky, now for the substitutions and such. As always, you can use white flour instead of whole wheat. You can add walnuts or pecans to the batter or top the muffins for a hit of protein and crunch. Feel free to soak the dates in boiling water with 1 tsp of baking soda, for an hour before draining them and adding them to the wet ingredients instead of the dry. This will break down the dates making them an integrated part of the batter, not a chunk like raisins. You can also add raisins, chocolate chips or some other little tasty tidbit as well.
Even though these came out burnt, I loved the way that the light was hitting them as I made my coffee. So I took photos anyway. It’s okay to get messy when cooking. You can make mistakes, that is how new recipes come about.
