"These were pretty good for a lighter doughnut! I actually made the batter and then cooked it by the tablespoonful in my mini-donut maker (it makes batches of 7 at a time). It came out to 32 mini doughnuts at 35 calories each, and they were so cute! They cooked up in just a couple of minutes per batch, and it was super easy. I just sprinkled the powdered sugar on top as they came out. Delicious! Nice little warm breakfast treat. If you didn't care about the calories, or you wanted to make them more of a dessert, they'd be fabulous with a drizzle of lemon glaze on top. Very nice!"
