Mini Gingerbread Donuts with White Chocolate Cinnamon Glaze

Mini Gingerbread Donuts



So I’m well and truly on the mini donut train. I have a whole list of recipes I want to make. They’re just so cute and really easy too! Who could say no?




I went through a bit of a ginger stage making gingerbread pancakes, chewy ginger biscuits and gingerbread muffins. My boyfriend loves ginger and since he bought me the mini donut pan I thought this recipe would be perfect.




These little morsels of ginger goodness could be served plain, but I mixed up some white chocolate with cinnamon and it made a deliciously sweet topping. 

Dipping them all in without loosing bits of the donut was quite time consuming, so if you’re in a rush they would look and taste just as good being drizzled with the chocolate.




I topped off the donuts with some teeny tiny gold sprinkles. Everything is better with sprinkles. Am I right?

      It’s a syrup we have in the UK. You can get it in most countries also though. This could be substituted for corn syrup :)
