Cheater’s Mini-Donuts


  • 1 box Krusteaz Apple Cinnamon Muffin Mix
  • 1 C Water
  • 3/4 C Powdered Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 -3 tsp Milk
  • 3/4 C Powered Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Cocoa Powder
  • 1/8 tsp Cinnamon
  • 3-4 tsp Milk


  1. Combine Muffin Mix and 1 cup of water. Mix thoroughly and add half to a gallon size baggie. Snip a 1/4 inch off the tip of the baggie and squeeze batter into a greased mini donut pan.
  2. Bake at 425 for 10-15 minutes and allow to cool for 2 minutes before removing from pan.
  3. Allow donuts to cool for 15 minutes before adding the glaze.
  4. Stir ingredients for the vanilla glaze and chocolate glaze in separate shallow bowls. Make glaze as thin or as thick as you prefer. I made mine a thin and dipped them twice.
  5. Dip donuts into glaze and set on wire rack to dip and harden. Give them a second dip if you made your glaze on the thin side, like I did. Drizzle opposite color glaze over top for some color contrast.
  6. Serve to hungry little mouths and enjoy their excitement!
