Birthday Cake Donuts | My Bizzy Kitchen



These birthday cake donuts turned out so good!

Baking is not my forte, so I looked at a bunch of recipes online to find baked donut recipes.

Many of them had yeast and required a slow rise overnight in the fridge, and I wasn’t about that life.

Ina Garten had a recipe that was more of a “batter” but when I saw that her 12 donuts had 1 3/4 cup sugar, and a stick of butter, I dramatically altered her recipe.

So thanks for the inspo Ina!

I bought my silicone donut pan online.  It’s really easy to get the donuts out after they cool.  Fill about 3/4 full.  I tapped the pan down a couple times too before baking to get out any air bubbles.

Cool completely in the donut pan.  Then gently remove.

For those of you who are new around here, I’ve been working with Safe + Fair for four years.  It was the first long term brand partnership I had and started this whole new career for me at the age of 51.  Working with them made me realize that I could ditch the day job that wasn’t my passion (and hadn’t been for many many years!) and put all my efforts into doing My Bizzy Kitchen full time.  And now fast forward and I have my daughter Hannah working with me full time.

I am truly blessed.  When we start off our day at the pool swimming and laughing I am reminded how grateful I am that I get to cook, film and share recipes as my job and not as my hobby.

Thank YOU for always stopping by to support me and Hannah.  It means more to us than you’ll ever know.
