Mini Muffins and Donuts Recipes

It’s my husband’s birthday week so we gettin’ crazy up in herre! I’m making two of his favorites from my recent baking extravaganza, this time with a twist.

First I’m miniaturizing the Pumpkin Banana Nut Muffins recipe, using these great silicon mini muffin molds I found on Amazon (similar here). I made the recipe, same as my original blog post, but since they’re smaller I kept a close eye on them while baking! The dough was a bigger batch than the mold, so I ended up making a few “overflow” muffins as well. I ended up only cooking them 20-minutes and they came out looking BEAUTIFUL!

The second recipe I made sadly didn’t turn out as beautiful. I really loved the Paleo Chocolate Avocado Cake I made last month, and I had some ripe avocados that I needed to use so it was perfect timing. The silicon molds I bought also included a donut mold (similar here), so I was excited to make my first donuts and thought this recipe would make perfect chocolate cake donuts.

MAYBE they would, if the recipe was more cakey vs. fudgy… or if I would have greased the molds before pouring the batter (oops). Anyways, turned out it was my first full-blown baking FAIL! They completely stuck to the mold and virtually disintegrated (into an incredible crumble mind you), when I removed them. Not to worry – I for sure will still be eating every last crumb! At least they looked pretty in the pink mold.

Anyways, check out my video on YouTube to see how much fun I had making them! Looking for the recipes? Here are the links to blog posts:
