This week is always tough: my desire to eat all the treats is at war with the knowledge I should be a little more balanced in my diet as well as careful with my budget
We’re off to see friends and I volunteered to bring dessert. I’m also feeling a bit lazy so the idea of whipping up something homemade isn’t overly appealing. However, I want to take something interesting and must use the toaster oven.
My compromise turned out to be cake mix donuts. I got to make minimal dishes, use ingredients already in the house and the donut pan that hasn’t seen the light of day in years.
- 1 cake mix (I used carrot)
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup oil
- 1 cup water
- Whisk all ingredients
- Pipe into oiled donut pan
- Bake for 10 minutes at 450 F
- Remove from oven, let rest for 10 minutes, remove from pan
I’m really pleased with how they turned out. I think a bit of icing would have been nice but 48 mini donuts were all the domestic goddess-ness I had in me.
