What To Serve Them With

I think its fair to say that doughnuts were just made to be covered in lashings of sugar. Just like if you were at a public event or theme park.

But other ideas to serve doughnuts with are;

  • Maple Syrup
  • Icing Sugar and sprinkles – you can colour your icing to your liking with food colouring.
  • Buttercream and cookie pieces – for cookies and cream topping.
  • Melted chocolate

Do you have any other serving suggestions? Let me know in the comments!

    Hi. I love my mini doughnut machine but I have to say I haven’t yet found a recipe that doesn’t bite my tongue. I think it’s down to the baking powder and wondered if there is a recipe where this can be omitted?
