Mini Donut Maker for Valentines Day Breakfast

Updated on January 8, 2013

Make a fun Valentine's Day Breakfast with a Mini Donut Maker

If you are looking for something fun and unique to do for creating a great Valentine's Day breakfast for the family, then I highly recommend the use of a mini donut maker! I'll provide you a little later on with some of the basics that you'll need in order to make the morning go smoothly, but I can assure you that this will be a hit with donut loving households. What's more, this little gadget is really easy to use and cleans up nicely! That's important if you are feeding a crowd. Our family of 10 was satisfied with a double batch of Bella donut mix. In fact, this was almost too much hot donut goodness at the time!

Read on for the overview of the product!

Bella Cucina 13466 Donut Maker - Great Valentine's Mini Donut Fun!

My sister sent this little gadget as a family gift for our household this last Christmas. I've seen these before and thought they were neat, but it's easy to ignore those little ideas when you are busy managing a hectic household. We've gone through some donut making experiments in the past, but the deep fryer can be a space hog in my kitchen, and the last time we used it, the oil went rancid due to inefficient cleaning! Not good.

Cake donuts are yummy, and this mini donut maker makes it easy to create a batch in a short period. I put my 19 year old to work, and it took about a half hour to adequately feed everyone in the family!

Outstanding flavor and quality achievable quickly and easily

Our unit is actually a lovely light blue. If you are purchasing for Valentines Day, of course, this hot red cutie is perfect for adding to the fun of the day. Red works perfectly for 4th of July and Christmas as well. However, you aren't restricted to red by any means, though you may be looking at different brands with similar characteristics to get the color you want.


Various Mini Donut Makers for Valentines Breakfast

Our version is a Bella, and we really liked its performance. There are additional options on the market, providing you with style and price variations. Some are featured below.

Do you love hot fresh donuts?

When I was a kid, my parents usually made weekends special with Winchell's donuts. The most special times, though, were those when they brought home piping hot glazed twists! Yum! Of course, it was also pretty fun on the weekends that we went to Winchell's with them and picked out our own donuts. There are lots of franchises today, and my faves are the ones that give me the opportunity to enjoy a hot donut freshly made!

Cautions for Kids

While little ones will definitely love the mini donuts, be careful to supervise if the help. The inside of the donut maker will be especially hot for little fingers, and the exterior may feel hot to their tender hands as well. Give them the opportunity to dunk donuts into glazes or add sprinkles.

Bella Donut Mix

We used two boxes of Bella donut mix to make a full breakfast for the 10 of us. Everyone was satisfied, though sugar levels definitely spiked. Plan accordingly!

Glazes are great, but let the donuts cool a little bit first. Otherwise, you may have your glazes melt directly into the donuts. Take time to review the glaze recipe that comes with a Bella mix, too. We didn't have the exact ingredients on hand (cream), and improvised.
