  1. Hi Amy–I love your stuff on Studio 5!! We finally got the mini donut maker (but my brother in Alabama had to send it to Utah!) Have you had any luck with TINY batches of batter? There is only two of us and I don’t want to be tempted to eat two dozen donuts–even if they are mini! THANKS!

    • Hi Debbie!

      Thank you so much for your kind words, and happy holidays to you.
      I am so glad you were able to get a machine!! Aren’t they fun?
      I have halved the recipes and they have turned out fine.
      The tricky measurements are the egg, and the 1/3 cup measurements.
      The egg halved is: 1 1/2 tbsp
      1/3 cup halved is: 5 tbsp + 1 tsp
      I have recently decided though to always make a full batch, they keep pretty well in an airtight container, then give some to a neighbor or friend. They will love you!

      Happy New Year!

      Amy
