Mini Powdered Sugar Donuts
Jorge is out of town this week and — in classic Jessica form — I have been eating like a single girl again. After I feed the girls dinner, give them their baths and send them off to bed…I find myself getting sucked into reality tv and eating things like cereal for dinner. Or cheese and salami for dinner. Or better yet, donuts for dinner…as I stand over the kitchen sink so I don’t get powdered sugar everywhere.
Speaking of TV, did y’all watch American Crime Story – The People vs OJ Simpson? I am OBSESSED. No, seriously. I have always been into crime shows. I love the ones telling real stories, the made up crime dramas and the ones based on true stories.
I was a kid when the OJ Simpson trial happened, so besides general common knowledge of what happened, it’s a mostly new story to me. Plus, Ross is killing it as Robert Kardashian. Also, John Travolta looks terrifying. He could almost be Arnold Schwarzenegger brother with that wig.
I may or may not have watched it while eating the leftover donuts from earlier. In bed. Please don’t tell Jorge.
Y’all know I am in love with mini donuts. Heck, I even wrote a whole Mini Donuts Cookbook! This is a great quick recipe to make baked powdered sugar donuts at home. You can use a mini donut pan or a mini donut maker.
I have the mini donut maker and my one helpful tip is to use the little fork/prong tool they give you to flip the donuts about halfway through cooking. It will provide the most evenly cooked donut.
