Valentine’s Day Mini Cake Doughnuts



I *think* this will be my last “Valentine’s Day” recipe. I can’t make any promises though. These mini doughnuts can be made anytime but I chose to decorate mine with my Valentine’s sprinkles. Maybe it’s because I had about three containers of sprinkles devoted to the said holiday. Okay, it was six. I promise I emptied a few of them though so now I really do have three! 

These mini doughnuts are so delicious and didn’t take very long to make. Next time I will pipe the filling into the pan rather than spoon it into the pan. It’s easier to get an evenly round doughnut by doing so.
