I've carried on the donut love with my son. Before he started Kindergarten, we'd have weekly donut dates before I dropped him off at preschool. And who am I kidding, we BOTH loved it!

Although we can't go sit down and have our donut dates right now, that doesn't stop me from making donuts at home!

Could you use this batter in like a mini muffin loaf pan set? Have you tried it in any other capacity besides a doughnut pan? Thanks!

Hi Alicia! I do think this would work in a mini muffin loaf as a cake bread, and I'd guess your bake time would be in the 20-25 minute range. I have successfully used this batter in a mini muffin pan with a bake time of around 9 minutes.
