Mini Doughnut Waffles

We all know that I generally get excited over recipes, it’s just a given. However, seriously you guys, I am THRILLED to bring you this new recipe and a give away from London Drugs to make your holiday season brighter! Eeeek!

I have teamed up with London Drugs to try out an appliance of my choice this winter and if any of you know me by now, you know I would go for the fancy, schmancy super duper waffle maker!

I chose to try out and keep the Breville waffle maker , a top of the line, super fabulous waffle maker. Oh, I have to admit it, I am an appliance girl. I love countertop appliances. I love testing them, buying them, using them and mostly coming up with recipes for them.

It’s never enough to just use the recipes that come with the manuals for me – though those recipes are usually fantastic- I have to go a little, um…

Crazy. Actually I prefer creative genius but most people would call it crazy. I just have to create something different. It’s sickness, I tell you.

I have mini doughnuts on my mind today, truth be told, because I was thinking of making mini doughnut muffins as I was driving home from dropping the kids off from school. This is what -30 weather does to me, I start thinking of glorious, homey, delicious things to bake.

So when I came home and found that the London Drugs Santa had dropped off a few packages for me, can you guess where my mind went?

Straight to mini doughnut waffles.

Actually to be perfectly honest, these are not waffles but actual doughnuts.I took a simple cake doughnut recipe and slightly altered it to make the dough work for cooking in a waffle maker.

These are quite seriously doughnuts, with a cinnamon sugar coating to top it all off.

You can vary the size as you wish, I found a medium size to be perfect. You don’t want to make them square, else they lose the fun look that they have and then simply resemble waffles.

Just take a moment to absorb this photo. You might now understand why I am so darn excited to share this recipe with you.

The Breville waffle maker is amazing. You simply put the dough in the middle like shown below and close the lid.

The settings for this exact waffle maker are classic and then three bars for the darkness. Oh, the settings on this are so amazing! There is a reason this is a top of the line appliance!

After the three minutes are up you lift the lid to see this golden brown beauty within.

It may look like a waffle but it is cakey like a doughnut inside, very thick and dense. Remember, these are cake doughnuts so we are not getting a yeast doughnut result either!

A little side note: 5-10 seconds in the microwave reheats these up perfectly and you’d never know they weren’t fresh!

Now the other best part!I have one Breville Waffle Pro  (sitting in the chair right beside me!) to give away to one of my readers thanks to the generosity of London Drugs!  This top of the line beauty retails for $249.99 and it can be yours!

Oh how I love giving things away this time of year to you guys! It’s a big thank you for making my site what it is and hanging in there all year round with my ramblings and more!

This giveaway is open to Canadian residents only, sorry my American readers but this thing weighs a ton and shipping would be a nightmare!

Good luck everyone! Oh and make sure you try those mini doughnuts this weekend and let me know what you think!

I have the WORST waffle maker ever made. Part of the waffle comes out burned, and another patch is still pale white. I stopped making waffles because of it! 

I'd love to make some salted caramel waffles for the family on Christmas morning!

All waffles are good! Especially with nutella

Best waffles are Belgian with lots of berries of any or mixed kinds and a generous dollop of whipped cream.

That's a beauty of a waffle maker.  I like how the setting/panel/light looks to be easy to read which is always a bonus for us with not so great vision. Love your mini waffle donuts too, what a clever idea & what a perfect size for little hands!

I love the gluten-free waffles that Creole Envie has on their menu. there aren't a lot of GF options out there in restaurants.
