I was sent the Mini Donut Bakery for review and I was very anxious to try it. I love to bake and have always wanted a fun baking appliance.
The thing I LOVE most about the Mini Donut Bakery is that I can have mini donuts in a matter of MINUTES! Before using my donut maker I read the directions and it said that donuts would cook in about 5 minutes. When I put in my first bath of donuts I cooked them for 5 minutes and ended up burning them. I tested a few more batches and with each batch I learned something new.
Here are my tips for the Mini Donut Bakery:
- Do a test batch with your maker to see how long it takes to cook donuts. I was able to cook a batch in 2-3 minutes.
- Put your batter into a pipping bag or ziploc bag for easy pouring.
- Fill the whole bottom tray with batter up to the line. I was under filling my batter and the tops of the donuts weren’t cooking. DON’T go over the line though since it will over flow.
- The maker gets VERY hot so be very careful. Remove donuts with a wooden spoon so you don’t burn yourself or scratch the maker.
- You can spray you maker with cooking spray, but I didn’t find it necessary.
Play around with your maker. You could make pretzels, donuts, cupcakes, or whatever your heart desires with this maker! I really do love this little appliance. It heats up quickly and has a light to let you know it’s hot, cooks quickly, and cleanup is a breeze.
The Mini Donut Bakery even comes with recipes!
Place batter in a ziploc bag and cut off the end. It makes pouring the batter so much easier and cleanup is a breeze.
Fill batter to the brim. It will help to cook your batter more evenly. Make sure you don’t overfill though.
Got Mini Donuts?
For a fast and easy frosting take a can of store bought frosting and heat in the microwave for of 10 seconds at a time until frosting is slightly melted. I melted half a can in about 15-20 seconds. You don’t want it fully melted, just warmed up so it turns into a glaze that makes dipping easy. Dip your donuts into the glaze and place on a cooling rack and add sprinkles before the glaze hardens.
I would recommend the Nostalgia Mini Donut Baker to anyone looking for a fun baking appliance or a donut maker. It makes baking quick and easy. You don’t need an oven or drying pan and clean up is minimal.

Sorry I need your help, my family gave me that donut maker and it's awesome, but the problem is that I wanna make bagels, because appears that you can make bagels too, but it doesn't appear the recipe of them so I don't know what to do. Do I search how to make bagels and I use the same recipe but with the donut maker? I have no idea please help!
