  1. I haven’t tried this recipe that was my grandmas yet I just today received my donut maker.

    Grandma Curtis’s Best Donuts
    2 eggs, 2 cups sugar, 2 1/2 cups sour milk, 3Tbsp melted shortening, 2tsp baking soda, 1tsp nutmeg, 1/2tsp salt, 2 cups flour.
    Slightly beat eggs in a mixing bowl. Add sugar and mix thoroughly. Melt shortening, measure out 3 Tbsp and add to mixture and beat. Add sour milk, mix well. Add all dry ingredients together with 2 cups flour in separate mixing bowl then add in liquid mixture and mix well. If needed add a small amount of sour milk to make mixture thin enough to spoon into donut maker….

  2. Donut Hole Recipe

    1 1/3 C all purpose flour
    1/3 C sugar
    1 tbsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 C Milk
    1/4 C Sour Cream
    1 tsp vanilla

  3. Dry ingredients consisting of ½ cup plain flour, ¼ cup sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder and ¼ teaspoon salt should be combined first in a mixing bowl. After mixing thoroughly, add ¼ cup milk, 1 large egg and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil.

    Then blend until the dry ingredients are dampened and the mixture is smooth and creamy. While following such mini donut maker recipes, don’t forget to pre-heat the maker. This should be around 4 to 5 minutes. Do not make the batter too watery, otherwise the donuts will not rise.

    Each mold should be brushed with melted butter. After brushing them all, fill 1 tablespoon of the mixture evenly into each mold. For easy pouring, use a plastic squeeze bottle. Do not over fill.

    Close the lid. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until the donuts are golden brown and soft to touch.

    Lastly, remove the donuts with wooden or heatproof spatula and let it cool. Plain donuts are ready to be served.

  4. Yay plain doughnut recipes! Though … the one calls for sour cream in it. Do doughnuts need sour cream for plain?

    And in general we can pretty much use any doughnut recipe for the doughnut maker I imagine

  5. I used the chocolate donut recipe and replaced the Cocoa Powder with plain sugar, it worked out great. I also used the vanilla frosting or glaze recipe, and added sprinkles. SOOO yummy! let me know how it works for you.

  6. I have an old Popeil’s donut maker from the 50′s-60′s. the recipe for Vanilla Donuts(as it appears on the box) follows.

    Vanilla Donuts

    2 1/4 cups flour
    2 tsp. baking powder
    1 c. sugar
    1 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. nutmeg
    1 TBLS softened shortening
    2 egg
    1 tsp vanilla
    3/4 c. milk

    Sift dry ingredients together in a large bowl, add shortening. Add eggs, vanilla and milk. Mix about 1/2 minute. Put batter in your donut maker and fry in 2 inches of shortening at 365 degrees.

  7. i tryed the donut recipe vanilla , using my popeils maker from a second hand store , my mom had one as kids and we just loved it , this is the best and thank you so much , have been trying for ever to get a recipe with out buying another one.

  8. I’m now a believer in the babycakes donut maker. I always wanted to find an alternative to having homemade foods instead of buying processed store bought. Now I just use the chocolate donut recipe for my first try and use it again except take out the cocoa powder. I then make the maple glaze to make my own maple donuts. First batch did not work so well cause it look a little burnt, but hopefully the second one will turn out better.

  9. Thank you Kyle!! My brother got a babycakes donut maker and we used your recipe and loved it!! We put some cinnamon and sugar in a bag and put the donuts in and shook it up. It was sooo good!! Everyone loved it! Thank you again!!!!!

  10. I used Michelle’s Donut hole recipe and added 1 egg and one tbsp of canola oil. I also replaced sour cream with Greek yogurt and added two extra tbsp. The result: it was absolutely delicious, my whole family loved them!! They were moist and chewy like real deep fryed donut hole and had a light crisp on the surface. I rolled them in cinnamon and sugar and some just in powdered sugar. Next time I am going to fill them with raspberry filling. Thanks!
