Are these really worth buying the machine to make them? One more question, are these induction friendly?

Thank you,

I have a baby cakes maker. I'm not sure I want the fishy smell in it though. I cooked salmon in a George Forman and never could get the smell off. But could bake them in the oven.

I got a used cake pop maker and a mini doughnut maker. I made fish tots in the pop maker and it was awesome. I made mini doughnuts in the other and they were okay but needed more oil/cream cheese.
They are silly tools but I like the convenience of the shapes. I think it's fun that I bought a cake maker to make low carb treats and meals!

Can't you just burn the smell off and then wipe it down? We wipe off the stuff and then leave it on and burn off smells and stuff in order to clean up the ash by wiping it off again. Mostly it just smells like burnt!

I think they are worth buying but I love mine. And my mini donut make.

Walmarts in the west side of country has the pop caker, waffle stick, mini donut and mini muffin maker machines for $9.96. My sister said they don't in FL but my sisters in Vegas and Texas and AZ said they do.

You can also make these in mini muffin tins.

Honestly the smell just would not go away. Maybe regular fish would be ok but that salmon odor just clung.

Hmm, I used tilapia and that's pretty mild compared to salmon. I'm sorry for you. have you tried lemon and baking soda? Peroxide?

I bought some salmon which had that terrible fishy odor. It was past its prime and I returned it. Fish isn't supposed to smell bad.

I've eaten enough sushi to know what good salmons should smell like. It's awful when it gets that slippery coating on it's surface. EWW!

I find I prefer the leaner yellowfin tuna better than the fattier salmon and I think it's because I haven't had good quality salmon in a while.

But this has come a bit far away from doughnuts!

Low Carbin' Made Simple: Sweet Pea's WPP Doughnut Holes

Doughnut Holes

1 large egg
1/4 cup melted butter
Sweetener to taste, if needed
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (1/3 cup)
Coconut oil

Topping:
Sweetener & cinnamon

Taste and texture-wise, these fall somewhere in between true doughnuts and funnel cakes. They cook very fast, so make sure you have everything on hand!

Heat about 1 inch of oil in a heavy skillet until it's hot enough for frying. While the oil heats, beat the egg lightly with the melted butter, then add the protein powder, and vanilla. Taste and add sweetener if you want it sweeter. I find the Jay Robb Vanilla sweet enough.

Whisk together until all the lumps are pretty much broken up, then let it rest a minute or two and whisk a bit more (batter will still have a grainy look to it, but that's fine).

Using a large tablespoon or serving spoon, drop the batter by large tablespoonfuls into the hot oil in batches of 4.
Fry until bottoms are golden-brown, which will only take a few seconds, then flip.
Drain on paper towels, then sprinkle with sweetener and cinnamon to taste and serve hot.

Makes about 8-12 doughnut holes

I've got some carbquick I bet would make good doughnuts. Hmmm maybe today.
Ok, I received my babycakes maker. This is the recipe I would like to use. Is there anything I need to change to make these in the babycakes machine? How much do I put in each donut hole in the maker?

Thank you,
Mindy

Mindy these are the one you fry. I've never made these in my cake pop maker. Maybe somebody else has.

Are you on induction?

Yeah I'm not sure, I've only fried them. I would try it, spray your maker with coconut oil spray or something, then put the batter. I don't know how much because I don't know how big the maker is, but I would use about 1TBSP.

Ok, so if they come out dry in the maker then I should up the fat right? I just don't want to waste good ingredients. Maybe add more butter or add CO to the mix?

Do you spray your doughnut maker to prevent sticking?

Yes, I was thinking to up the fat. Even some heavy whipping cream. I didn't spray my doughnut hole maker. On this particular recipe my husband sliced them and ate them with butter. Guess it needed fat. Lol

The other recipe I tried today that JHoberer posted above is really good. I added Lorann banana flavoring -10 drops and used liquid sucralose -12 drops. I like things sweet. Rolled in melted butter and than Splenda. Tonight I plan on putting some low carb Nutella on them.

Thank you for this. It was really good. I added 10 drops of Lorann banana flavoring because of your remark about not having enough banana flavor. Also 12 liquid sucralose. I'm a sweet addict.

I oiled my holes so that they would pop out. Did the trick they came out very cleanly.

Thank you, I will up the fat and see what happens. I too love things sweet so I am hoping these turn out yummy.

if they taste dry, try adding cream cheese and a bit of coconut oil. That fixed it for me.

I made cornbread pops tonight in my doughnut hole maker out of chicken lady's cornbread recipe. Delicious. I halved the recipe. It made 12 and I put quite a bit of leftover batter in the frig overnight.

Wendy I'd start with 2 T. cocoa powder but don't forget to add sweetner for the chocolate.

Babycakes PP Doughnuts (with a huge nod to Ms. Woods!)

1 lg. egg
1/4 c. + 2 T. melted butter
**15 drops EZsweets
1 t. vanilla
1 scoop protein powder (I use ISOpure zero carb french vanilla)
3/4 oz. HWC

Preheat doughnut maker while you mix all ingredients together with a whisk. Then put 1 tablespoon of liquid in each doughnut hole in the maker. Cook for 5 minutes and remove to cooling tray. Add last of liquid to middle 5 holes and cook 5 minutes. Remove to tray to cool. Once cooled refrigerate until cold, as these are much better cold.

**We like our stuff pretty sweet, so depending on your taste and the sweetness of the protein powder you may need to adjust the sweetner.

Hope you like them,
Mindy

Hi Mindy - I'm going to drop your recipe in my food tracker and try it out today - this might make a really good snack/mini meal.

Ironic I found this recipe since I'm trying to keep my protein low, but this looks like it makes quite a bit and per donut it would be pretty reasonable.

Did that recipe turn out well in the maker as opposed to frying them? I've only fried them but depending on what PP I use, they fall apart. Ive only had success using Jay Robb, which I never buy anymore due to the cost. I use Syntrax Nectar now but haven't tried the recipe.

MsWoods - I just tried the above with Jay Robb and ended up with clumps. I started with the melted butter, added the egg and HWC then the Jay Robb and ended up with clumps in a pool of buttery liquid.

Any ideas?

It's been a long while since I've made them, but let me go find the original recipe because I don't remember using HWC at all.

Sweet Pea's WPP Donut holes.
Doughnut Holes

1 large egg
1/4 cup melted butter

1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (1/3 cup)
Coconut oil

Topping:
Sweetener & cinnamon

Taste and texture-wise, these fall somewhere in between true doughnuts and funnel cakes. They cook very fast, so make sure you have everything on hand!

Heat about 1 inch of oil in a heavy skillet until it's hot enough for frying. While the oil heats, beat the egg lightly with the melted butter, then add the protein powder, and vanilla. Taste and add sweetener if you want it sweeter. I find the Jay Robb Vanilla sweet enough.

Fry until bottoms are golden-brown, which will only take a few seconds, then flip.
Drain on paper towels, then sprinkle with sweetener and cinnamon to taste and serve hot.

Makes about 8-12 doughnut holes
