Baked Vanilla Mummy Doughnuts
Halloween is next month and I have been trying to plan costume ideas, and treats for a small kid’s party. This morning I noticed my kids were low on sweet snacks so I figured I would make them a quick batch of baked vanilla doughnuts. Since Halloween is right around the corner, I got a little creative and turned ordinary frosted vanilla donuts into mummy doughnuts.
This quick Halloween sweet treat could not get anymore easier-I promise! I have a doughnut maker that can easily make 9 doughnuts in 5 minutes. I made 18 donuts in like 15 minutes, and then after they cooled I simply drizzled on white “mummy” frosting with a “petal” style pastry bag tip, and then placed two candy eyes on each doughnut to make them a little more creepier.
I love making cute little Halloween baked treats like these vanilla mummy doughnuts because my kids get super excited! I always try to make them seasonal treats and prefer baking my own verses store bought. At least I know what is going into their snacks and desserts.
*Makes 18 mini baked doughnuts
- 1 1/2 cups of flour
- 3/4 tablespoon of baking powder
- 3/4 cup of sugar
- 1 stick of melted butter
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup of milk
- Vanilla frosting
- Candy eyes
Whisk your dry ingredients, and then fold in the wet ingredients-mix well but do not over mix. The batter will be a fairly thick but smooth.
Heat you doughnut maker and spoon in enough batter to fill the wells using a tablespoon.
Bake for 5 minutes, and then place on a cooling rack; repeat two more times until 18 doughnuts are made.
Once doughnuts are cooled, using a petal pastry tip, make mummy lines
Place two eyes on each, and then set them on a platter for display.
