Don’t you agree that everything is cuter in it’s mini version; puppies, kittens, babies, mini-dresses, and Mini-Coopers. Being a somewhat mini-person myself (5 feet tall), I’ve always been partial to all things diminutive.

It’s funny where one can find inspiration. I attended a Prince concert the other night at the Forum in Inglewood, California. Great show by the way.  On our way home, we passed an iconic LA landmark called Randy’s Donuts which was built in 1953. This roadside donut stand is open 24 hours a day. It was past midnight, and there was a line at least 10 customers deep at the window.  It just got me to thinking how long it had been since I ate a donut. So, the very next day I went out to my local baking supply store and purchased a mini-donut pan. I rationalized that by baking the donut I would cut out a lot of the fat and calories that would otherwise be found in a fried donut. And naturally, the miniature size would also be a reduction in calories. I just couldn’t wait to start baking.  The finished product was quite tasty and of course, very cute! The cinnamon and nutmeg gave the donut a subtle, spicy flavor; and the pastry flour yielded a tender donut.
