donut holes

I got out all the ingredients and Brielle put these together entirely by herself
Brielle and I had the afternoon together alone and she asked if we could make donuts... sure I said. I found a recipe from the peta website and it seemed easy enough. I didn't have a donut pan, so we improvised and used a non stick mini muffin pan. It worked great; the donut holes aren't maybe as pretty as they would have been with the proper tool, but you won't mind, once you bite into one.

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 scant tsp nutmeg
1 dash of cinnamon

1/2 cup soy or almond milk
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
egg replacer for 1 egg
1/4 cup earth balance

Combine the dry ingredients, whisk thoroughly. Combine the wet ingredients in a sauce pan over medium low heat. Mix until the margarine is must melted. Mixture will be warm to the touch.
Add the wet mixture to the dry and stir until everything is just combined. It will be a very soft dough. Using a tablespoon, scoop dough into an ungreased doughnut pan or muffin pan and bake for 10 minutes at 350. The recipe called for 12 minutes but mine were done in 10. They shouldn't brown, but a toothpick will come out clean.
Mix a little confectioners sugar with water and drizzle over. Sprinkles!
Makes about 20 donut holes. Also want to note, we made two batches and the first worked better, and didn't spread out as much. No difference in taste but next time I would use two muffin trays and bake them all at once.

for the icing:
1 cup of confectioners sugar
couple tablespoons of water
1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix everything together, add enough water to get the consistency of a proper icing, spoon over the top, or dip them in, which is what Brielle did.
