Baked Mini Coffee Doughnuts with Cocoa Glaze

Donut recipe or Doughnut recipe? I don’t know which one is correct, but today we are going with donut.

My Pinterest feed has been tempting me with donuts for months now. This pin was the last straw.

I had to bake some donuts myself. This post contains affiliate links, so we can make an obscene amount of mini donuts.

I ordered myself a mini donut pan because I figured mini donuts would be safer than the large version.

I had no idea how small this mini pan would be, but it’s adorable and I love it. It makes tiny bite-sized donuts that are perfect for everyone.

I modified the recipe from the pin above. I love the way they turned out, and I look forward to trying more flavor combinations.

I also tried to make a vanilla glaze using vanilla instant pudding. I used 1 Tbsp vanilla instant pudding powder and 1 Tbsp of coconut milk. It was more like a frosting than a glaze. It was not very pretty on the donuts, but they tasted good.
