Donut pans are super cheap on Amazon Prime…like 9 dollars, or 12, or 14, I don’t remember but totally worth it

And chocolate too because, chocolate.  Same recipe, just use chocolate instead of vanilla.

  1. Love these donuts!!! I made them just like you said and they actually look just like yours. Your not kidding when you say no mess! Best part for me is the fact they taste AMAZING and I can have the amount I actually want without feeling miserable about myself.

    1. Aimee when John builds our house maybe I’ll open a bakery/winery on the farm. I don’t see any scenario in which sweets and wine combined would not be a good thing.
