I got a mini doughnut maker for Christmas last year, and last night I decided that what I wanted more than anything else was a plate full of red velvet doughnuts. After making my kitchen look like a crime scene and deciding never to use the doughnut maker again, I made some red velvet cupcakes.
Enjoy the pictures, and then fill up this here open thread will all your wise weekend thoughts.
These are some sad ass doughnuts.
It’s like I put a Muppet through a waffle iron. Clean up took four times as long as baking. My counter is still a little pink.
After realizing I could only use about 1tsp of batter per doughnut, I said screw it, and made cupcakes.
Icing and sparkle sugar are the Spanx of baking.
This one is just for you, reader.

ooooh that settles it, I don’t care HOW hot it is I am baking this evening.
of course it will be gluten and sugar free…. BUT I am now in the mood for baked goodness and nothing else will do.
Someone at work brought in zucchini the size of baseball bats, so as soon as it cools down for the night, I’m making zucchini chocolate chip bread.
Gluten free, sugar free? Tell me more.

I almost wasn’t going to click on this. And then you said naked.
Red velvet doughnuts? Yes, please.
I had the longest, most exhausting week ever. I conducted about 20-ish interviews in four days. My entire plan for today: lounge around in bed and only move when the hunger is too much to bear.
Naturally, that means I got called into work. Heaven help the first difficult client who gets in front of me today. I am in no mood for nonsense.
Oh my GOODNESS. Those look delicious! Future Mr. has been making wistful faces whenever he sees a doughnut maker and this will not help my argument that we don’t really need one.
It’s not worth the work involved. Get him a cupcake tin.
Plus, it didn’t come with instructions, so I wasted a lot of batter figuring out how much to put in each hole, and I wasn’t entirely sure cake batter was what I should have been using to begin with. Cupcakes are 1. bigger, 2. easier and C. less messy.
I might solely be replying because of ‘Red Velvet Doughnuts’.
O, and to say that I’m on to (hopefully) greener pastures, a mini-holiday in Cornwall. Just after arriving back in NL from South Africa yesterday. This travelling thing really feels nice!
