Nesquik Donuts

Yesterday after chatting to a new friend who is also a follower of this page, mini donuts began calling my name.. So, I obliged, and Nesquik flavoured donuts were born. Having seen a few recipes with homemade buttermilk, I wanted to try something similar to see what type of texture donut it would produce. I thought of going the old fashioned cocoa route to make a chocolate donut, but then the Nesquik caught my eye and Nesquik it was.

Again, I stuck with coconut oil as I believe it helps produce a lighter donut and I’m also an avid non supporter of margarines and seed oils. This recipe produces a very soft but more cake like texture as opposed to the soft on the inside crisp on the outside recipe which I had previously posted from the Safeway mini donut makers instruction booklet.

My friend had mentioned how she bought a mini donut maker after my review on the Safeway brand which I had purchased and she wanted to thank me as she would not have bought such an item in a hurry. After chatting to her, I realized her buy was a perfect one- she had bought the Salton make, which not only makes mini doughnuts but waffles and cake pops as well. The plates are interchangeable making it easy to clean as well as making storage a breeze- 3 gadgets in one!
