We have definitely got our use out of this gift as we have made doughnuts several times. It makes 6 mini doughnuts at a time and they take about 5 minutes. This time we used a recipe I found on the Boomtown Sisters Blog. You can find the recipe here. We did not have any Cinnamon Chips on hand (actually I have never heard of them before) so we used mini chocolate chips and recess chips instead. They turned out really good and we had enough for breakfast and for snacks the next few days.
Making my own doughnuts is not something I ever really though of doing, but with this nifty gadget it is really no problem at all!
