I Heart Hearts

January 29, 2011

It is probably safe to say that I am a little infatuated with all things Valentine’s Day.

There is just something about cute little hearts and Valentine’s decorations that I simply cannot resist.

And I also cannot resist these little guys all decked out in Valentine’s sprinkles.

Basic Mini Doughnuts

(Adapted from here)

Dry Ingredients
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
½ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Wet Ingredients
½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
½ teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1 Egg
4 tablespoons Earth Balance

Basic Icing
1/2 cup confectioners powdered sugar (mix 1 tablespoon cocoa powder for chocolate icing)
1 tablespoon almond milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Make a well in the center.  Whisk in the wet ingredients until mixture forms a smooth batter.  Transfer to a pitcher or fabric piping bag.  Spray doughnut pan with cooking oil.  Fill pan with batter.  Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes (until doughnuts appear lightly browned).  Let cool on wire rack before decorating.

These are so fun and festive, aren’t they?

We’re off to the circus tonight…where I must confront my lifelong fear of clowns.

Have a Happy Saturday!

      The book is one of my favorite cookbooks. Lot of great recipes, especially if you live near a Trader Joe’s. A lot of the ingredients come from there.
