Ever since I purchased a mini-donut baking pan, I cannot tell you how many times I’ve used this for an easy breakfast idea for my girl.It makes the best mini donut dunkers—perfect bite-sized pancakes ready to dunk into a little syrup, jam, or pop in your mouth as is!
My first trick is to make your pancake batter all in one bag. I usually use the pre-mixed pancake batter where you just add water.
1/2 cup dry mix plus water (I use 1/2 cup of water, but it varies depending on the specific mix proportions) usually fills one mini donut pan.
I preheat my oven to 375, and mix up the pancake mix in a sandwich bag all together. This steps is fun for the kids to help with – to shake the bag until the batter is ready.
Then, I cut a little corner from the bag and squeeze the pancake batter into my pre-greased pan. I used a non-stick spray on the pan.
After each donut cavity is filled about 2/3 of the way, it’s time to put in the oven for about 10-12 minutes.
When they come out of the oven – they are perfect little pancake donut dunkers.
Pop them out, and you can set them on a plate with a little cup of syrup for dunking, or take it up a notch with a little Nutella hazelnut chocolate spread, berries and whipped cream.
i couldn’t resist the happy face. = )
And I know one happy camper who knows how to clear her plate!
This is a fun weekend breakfast idea, and actually easy enough to make on school days too!
