I love to bake, everyone who knows me knows I love to get creative in the kitchen and bake all kinds of goodies, but sometimes my kids want to help and I find using pre-packaged box kits to be easy, and simple enough for the kids to help with.
I was beyond excited to check out the new Pillsbury® Funfetti Lil’ Donut Kits. They are the first kits where you don’t need any kind of pans to make donuts!
The first thing I noticed was how few ingredients you need to make the donuts! Besides the box kit all you need is milk, water and butter!
The Lil’ Donut Kit comes with your dough, the glaze and sprinkles. Baking these little donuts are beyond simple. After making the dough, you just roll them into teaspoon size balls and place them on a cookie sheet, then put them in the oven to bake.
After baking you let them cool down a few minutes before rolling them in the glaze. You can do the glaze anyway you like really. Either roll them in the glaze or drizzle on top. Be sure to add the sprinkles right away while the glaze is still “wet” on the donut.
We served the Pillsbury Funfetti Lil’ Donut Kit at our Spa party and they were a huge hit!
A few tips I have are:
- Have the kids help! These Kits are extremely easy to follow and are the perfect way for kids to start learning about measurements and following directions.
- Lil’ Donut Kits can be a great treat during parties. While these are Donuts they taste a little like cakes so kids think of them as little round cake treats.
- They make great Morning Treats! Yes, sometimes it’s ok to give the kids a treat with breakfast (as long as it’s a well balanced meal I see nothing wrong with a little Donut treat!)
