Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I must confess that I was not particularly enthused about Jessica Segarra's Mini Donuts: 100 Bite-Sized Donut Recipes to Sweeten Your "Hole" Day when I ordered it. While I love donuts, the idea of baked donuts instead of the traditional fried version hasn't been something that particularly attracted me. And then it arrived on my doorstep just about 3 hours before I was to leave for a couple of weeks visiting my daughter and granddaughter in the UK. Having nothing much better to do, I spent a good hour reading through all of the recipes instead of twiddling my thumbs while waiting to leave and I must say, I changed my mind in a hurry. In fact, I came this close to hauling the book and my Norpro 3980 12-Count Nonstick Mini Donut Pan along with me, thinking making these tiny treats might be a fun thing to do with my granddaughter. Weight won out and Mini Donuts: 100 Bite-Sized Donut Recipes to Sweeten Your "Hole" Day stayed behind, patiently waiting.

So, I crawled in the door just about 48 hours ago after 22 hours in a car, a bus, a plane and then a car again (NOT as young as I used to be!) and I've finally gotten up enough gumption to want something to eat other than whatever the pizza delivery guy can bring to my door, so out came the book and the pan.

The book starts out by explaining that she wanted to focus on ingredients that the average busy cook would actually have in their cupboard. Sure enough, these are actually cookable by mere mortals like me.

Each recipe even includes directions for both mini-donut pans and electric donut makers. Donut pans produce light, airy, cupcake-like donuts, and the machines create thicker, denser cakelike donuts - both are good, so you can start out on the cheap with the pan, and then move up to the electric maker if you're addicted.

The photos are lush and appetizing. The recipes you expect are there - blueberry cake, sour cream cake, etc - but there's ideas I never would have imagined. Fast canned-biscuit fried mini donuts that are ready in minutes?!? Salted caramel mini donuts? Sweet potato marshmellow mini donuts? Brown butter bourbon mini donuts? Wow - I'm impressed.

Santa brought this for my 10-year-old daughter, along with a mini-donut maker. We have tried 4 of the recipes so far. Sure, they're not the crispy donuts you might get at a donut shop, but these recipes produce some tasty bites -- and quick with the mini-donut maker! Big hit!

Pros:
-Easy to follow recipes -- my daughter can essentially do this activity alone
-Recipes are forgiving -- using 2% instead of whole milk or light sour cream instead of whole milk, for example, hasn't been a problem
-Non-yeast recipes, as well as those for yeast and fried donuts
-Pretty tasty -- and cute, too!
-Good instructions for different cooking methods (e.g., baking in donut pans, electric donut makers, frying) and clearly marked recipes so you can figure out which method a recipe requires
-Nice photos and design
-Common ingredients used for the majority of recipes
-The book itself is small -- kind of mini, but not so mini that it's difficult to use -- and put together nicely, with high-quality paper and a hardcover

Cons:
-This is titled as 100 recipes, but that is not accurate. There are 100 items, but many of the donut varieties are actually the same basic donut with various glazes and toppings. I suppose it's nice to have the batter recipe handy to the photo and glaze recipe so you don't have to keep flipping around, but I'm not sure it justifies calling this 100 recipes. I have not done a real survey, so perhaps as we use the book more, I will find that there is more variation on the batter recipes than I am seeing so far.

Overall, I recommend the book, especially if you're getting an electric donut maker, because it gives a good visual tour of variety of cakey bites you can make and the recipes are forgiving and simple to follow--but I give it 4 stars for fudging on the title count.

This is a beautiful cookbook. It is well laid out and each donut recipe is beautifully illustrated with scrumptious looking photos of the donuts. The recipes are very easy to make and most of them do not require a bunch of fancy ingredients. However, the "fancier" donuts - like the "Chocolate Toasted Coconut Mini Donut" - do require ingredients you might not have on hand (such as coconut milk and toasted coconut).

When I ordered this book I thought that it was just going to be baked donut recipes, but apparently I didn't read the description thoroughly. The recipes are for baked AND fried donuts. Neither baked nor fried donuts are particularly healthy items to eat, but I feel less guilty eating one that is baked.

I discovered that quite a few of the recipes had the same basic recipe. The only thing that varied were the toppings. Quite honestly, I think that the basic recipe isn't very tasty (they are rather bland - even with cinnamon and sugar). However, if you slather them with the various toppings such as candy bars, marshmallow fluff, coconut, etc. it definitely improves the taste. That will quickly add to the caloric and fat content of the donut though.

BOTTOM LINE: This is a beautiful cookbook. I would definitely give it as a gift to someone who loves donuts and has a donut maker. Keep in mind, however, that the content includes a mixture of baked AND fried donut recipes.
