- Mini donut pans are fun to use, but since they’re a little more unusual than a muffin pan, it can be difficult to come up with ideas for recipes to make in them. The next time you’re in the mood for some mini donuts, try a batch of Banana Bread Mini Donuts, like Shove it In Your Face recently baked. These bite sized donuts are made with mashed banana, brown sugar, cinnamon and plenty of butter, so eating one is almost like having an entire loaf of banana bread all to yourself. You can bake these plain, or liven up the batter with a generous amount of dark chocolate chips before baking.
- The Pumpkin Snickerdoodles that Life Tastes Like Food made are a great fall twist on a classic American cookie. A regular snickerdoodle is a buttery sugar cookie that is rolled in cinnamon sugar. This variation features a pumpkin and spice infused cookie dough as its base. The dough is still rolled in a cinnamon sugar mixture, so you get the flavor of snickerdoodle in your first bite and the warm, fall flavor of pumpkin in all of the rest.
- If you are a coconut lover, then Treats‘ Quadruple Coconut Cake needs to be put at the top of your must-make list. Every single component in this towering dessert is infused with coconut. The coconut cake is drenched in coconut simple syrup to keep it moist and the layers are stacked together with coconut pastry cream. As if that weren’t enough, the cake is frosted with coconut buttercream and has toasted coconut pressed into the sides as garnish. You might never be able to go back to a regular coconut cake again.
- These Sourdough Blueberry Bagles from Wild Yeast Blog are a great recipe to try if you have a sourdough starter in your fridge and are looking for something new to do with it. The bagel recipe is fairly standard, but dried blueberries are incorporated into the dough. The blueberries give the bagels some sweetness and make the prospect of a toasted bagel topped with butter or cream cheese a lot more exciting. Shaping the bagels takes a little bit of practice, so don’t worry if yours don’t turn out perfectly smooth the first few times you try them. And if you don’t have a sourdough starter, you can try something similar by adding dried blueberries to my basic Bagel Recipe.
