Little Gem Cupcake Donuts
I was in my kitchen thinking about when I was younger with my Grandmother "Mimi" in the kitchen. I remember how she always loved cakes, chocolate and vanilla glaze. Indeed, Mimi was a great baker and a cook as well, but her love was chocolate, anything with chocolate! She stayed fit all her life eating chocolate and cakes and walking several miles daily, even in the rain. I remember spending summers and winters with her and after we would eat a slice of vanilla chocolate cake, we would put our coats on to walk for miles and chat away. She had the most delicious Belgium chocolates and she always had a fresh baked cake ready for me to glaze when I walked in the door. Such great memories that I will cherish. She was always so sweet and loving; thanks for the great memories "Mimi".
So, I decided to play in la cucina and I created these delicious and adorable cupcake donuts. Not fried, but baked cupcake donuts with a simple cake batter. I used different sprinkles; chocolate (of course), coconut and a red sugar sprinkle. These Little Gems are just one bite deliciousness!
