Chai Mini Doughnuts
I think I have a thing for donuts as seen here, here and here. After making my pumpkin doughnut holes. I really wanted the fancy doughnut hole pan. I got two of them for Christmas and I've been dying to whip some up. The recipe is from this "Doughnut" cookbook and is basically a basic cake dough flavoured with black tea and yummy spices - ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg...

The nice part is they taste best fresh from the oven (the texture is just a bit off the next day), so you really can't feel guilty for eating the whole batch. I highly recommend checking out this cookbook for endless goodies (it's a good thing they're mini).

Frequently Asked Questions
What are mini doughnuts called?
Mini doughnuts are also known as cinnamon rolls in the UK, and they are a popular street food. They typically take the form of a shortbread cookie that is deep-fried and shaped into a doughnut shape. The cookies are then glazed with either sugar or milk, and sometimes decorated with cinnamon or other spices.
Mini Doughnuts can be found at most convenience stores all over the world, making them an easy snack to grab on the go. In addition to being delicious, they're also healthy due to their high fiber content (which helps keep you feeling full) and low calorie count (maxing out at around 110 calories per donut).
What temperature do you deep fry donuts?
The oil is now heated to 375 F. It's crucial to fry the doughnuts in small batches after the ideal temperature is reached. The oil temperature decreases and the doughnuts soak up too much oil when you fried too many at once. Make sure the oil is always between 365 and 380 degrees Fahrenheit.
