My friend Karlene was just here visiting from Vancouver. We had a great week of baby cuddles, shopping, chai tea lattes and some fun in the kitchen baking chai mini doughnuts. Yu-um. Tea, sweets and girl time just go hand in hand don't they?
I think I have a thing for donuts as seen here, here and here. After making my pumpkin doughnut holes I really wanted the fancy doughnut hole pan. I got two of them for Christmas and I've been dying to whip some up. The recipe is from this "Doughnuts" cookbook and is basically a basic cake dough flavoured with black tea and yummy spices - ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg...
(similar recipe here, minus the cocoa)
The nice part is they taste best fresh from the oven (the texture is just a bit off the next day), so you really can't feel guilty for eating the whole batch. I highly recommend checking out this cookbook for endless goodies (it's a good thing they're mini).
