I said it last week – I’m not usually one for boxed mixes of any kind if possible. But this week, hubby came home with a must try, so today I schlepped it to Sur la Table for a doughnut pan to make cinnamon-sugar doughnuts from a mix by Stonewall Kitchen. We’ve used their mixes in the past, and although they haven’t been a hit as much as Ina’s, we’ve been pleased. Today was money.
The mix itself is very simple – one packet of doughnut mix, another of cinnamon sugar for the topping. Basically, all I did was add 1/3 cup melted butter, 1 egg, and 1/2 cup milk to the dough mix, and pipe each cavity of a doughnut pan half full. Bake for 9 minutes at 350, and one slightly cooled, dip in melted butter and then in the cinnamon sugar. Fantastic. To a Native Texan, it tasted just like a homemade Churro. Que bueno.
