I am excited to tell you that babycakes has just launched packaged mixes for use in their fabulous appliances! How convenient is that!?
The directions were very easy to follow and I just needed to add a few staple ingredients to the mix: an egg, oil and buttermilk. (I keep powdered buttermilk on hand.)
I mixed the ingredients and was surprised at how thick this mixture was. It made me a little nervous, but I put the batter in my ziploc bag, cut the tip off and filled each donut crevice with it. Exactly 3 minutes later my first batch of donuts was ready. And despite how thick the batter was, the donuts were moist, the perfect consistency and delicious looking.
After they cooled just a bit, I had to taste test one. Yum-o.
I was surprised at how rich the chocolate was. They are not milk chocolate donuts, they are a deep, dark, rich chocolate. Oh. My. Yum.
After the donuts cooled, I made the frosting that came with the donut mix. It was incredibly easy to mix, you just add melted butter and milk to the mix and whisk until smooth. I did find I needed a bit more milk then suggested on the box, but overall it was still so simple.
I thought that babycakes Chocolate Donut mix was very simple to use and resulted in delish donuts! I was surprised at how rich the flavor was and how good the texture was. These were definitely a success!
They also passed the husband test: he loved the donuts! I got compliments a couple of times from him about how good the donuts were! And I fully expect that when I wake up in the morning, there won’t be many left!
I just hope he leaves me a couple of donuts to take pretty pictures with in the morning 🙂
