Cornbread Mini Donuts

Like most of the country, we've been stuck in a rainy, cold and miserable weather pattern for a while.   I found myself craving chili yesterday, and wanted some kind of cornbread/muffin to go with it.   I found this recipe on Cooking with My Kid and couldn't wait to give it a try in my mini donut pans.   


I made no changes to the recipe, though I may have sprayed my pans with Pam if I hadn't run out.      I softened some butter in the microwave and added some local honey to it, then dipped the donuts into it like a glaze    :)   I got exactly 24 donuts, and Jake & I just loved them.     Next time I'm planning on added minced jalapeno to half the batch, and maybe swapping out the lemon juice for lime.






Cornbread Donut Recipe

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
     2/3           cup  yellow cornmeal
     1/3           cup  all purpose flour
     3/4      teaspoon  baking powder
     3/4      teaspoon  baking soda
  1              pinch  salt
  1                     egg (lightly beaten)
  1          container  non fat yogurt -- (6 oz)
  1         tablespoon  canola oil
  2          teaspoons  lemon juice
  3        tablespoons  granulated sugar -- added with the liquid ingredients
  2        tablespoons  butter (melted) -- (2 to 3)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl whisk together all the dry ingredients. In another bowl stir together oil, lemon juice, egg and yogurt. Make a hole in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients into the hole. Gently fold everything together until combined. Use a teaspoon to dribble a small pool of butter in each cavity of the donut pan. Place half the batter in a small zip baggie and seal it. Cut a small hole in the corner of the baggie and pipe batter into the donut cavities on top of the butter. Only fill each cavity 1/2 way and before baking be sure to clean off any stray dough around the circle so there’s a hole in the middle of the donut. If making mini donuts, bake for 4 or 5 minutes. If baking regular sized donuts cook fro 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool for a moment and then flip over onto a cooling rack while still warm.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Buttermilk Rhubarb Muffins #MuffinMonday

This is the first year I've been able to harvest the rhubarb from my garden. Today I got three nice sized, very red stalks so went searching for a recipe and came up with these Buttermilk Rhubarb Muffins from Taste of Home.  I upped the amount of nutmeg to 1/2 teaspoon and also added 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. I took about 1/4 cup of the flour called for in the recipe and tossed it with the rhubarb to keep it from sinking, a trick I learned from my Gram.  I  use a cookie scoop to distribute the batter evenly. I also topped the batter with raw sugar before baking, we love the sparkle and crunch it gives the muffins. Thank you so much to Stacy for hosting and to all of the other #MuffinMonday bakers for sharing their recipes, be sure to check them out using the links down below!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick
