Did that adequately convey my enthusiasm? I hope so. And if it didn’t, me in this video certainly will.

These mini heart shaped donuts are SO freaking cute! I WILL SAY THIS: These do not, I repeat DO NOT taste like donuts. Donuts are fried, these are baked. These taste like yummy little dense cupcakes. So you’ll want frosting or icing with them. And I think they are good, but like, they are no replacement for an actual donut. So just don’t expect that when you eat them and you’ll be just fine with the outcome.

Mini-Heart Shaped Donut Recipe
(from Wilton)

Donut batter:
2 cups cake flour
¾ cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
¾ cup buttermilk
2 eggs lightly beaten
2 Tbls butter melted

Spray pan with cooking spray. Combine ingredients and mix well. Pour into piping bag. Pipe the hearts half full. Bake at 425 for 4-6 minutes, or until donut pops back when lightly touched.

Ice or frost!

Buttercream Frosting Recipe:

1 cup room temp butter
4 or so cups of powdered sugar maybe more
1/8 cup cream
1/8 cup milk (or 1/4 cup milk if you don’t have heavy whipping cream)
1 tsp vanilla extract

Cream the butter with the paddle attachment on your mixer. At least 5 minutes or so. Add the sugar and milk and whip for a few more minutes! Add color if you’d like. Add more sugar or milk depending on your needs, or add more butter if it gets too sweet. You want the frosting stiff enough to pipe, so when you pull your spoon out the peak should not flop over at all. We call that a stiff peak!

Happy baking!

    Many thanks!
