EBOOK TOOLS

Since I get SO many questions about what I use exactly, what brands, what I recommend and so on...here's a full detailed list I put together of what I personally use when I bake my donut babies :) As promised in my donut recipe e-book XOXO

Non-Ingredient Things/Tools:

Baking Bowls - you can of course buy these at any home or kitchen store, but I like this set https://amzn.to/2CoDlIu & this one, https://amzn.to/2CPN77p

Kitchen Aid Pro Mixer - you don't need one of these for donut making, but they're handy to have as an investment over time to save your wrists! - https://amzn.to/2NL68ZV or this one, https://amzn.to/2NNbdAM

Oster 6 Speed Hand Mixer (cheaper dupe for the Kitchen Aid that works really well, too!) -https://amzn.to/2J2u4Hj

Mixing Utensils & Whisks - you can of course get these anywhere, too! I prefer stainless steel though & also these silicone ones come in handy every single time, not just for donuts, but for, like...everything! - https://amzn.to/2RYuUsF

Measuring Cups + Spoons - you can buy these at any home or kitchen store but I love these stainless steel ones despite them being more expensive, I swear by them because they last a lot longer due to not snapping all the time LOL - https://amzn.to/2EtPJK2 & these ones are great too if you're not into stainless steel - https://amzn.to/2EtkG11 

A Mortar and Pestle is very important to have in my kitchen for crushing things! I crush fresh cardamom and culinary lavender almost on the daily for homemade nut milks. I would totally recommend one for toppings & glazes for the donuts. For things like cardamom, lavender, pistachio, pecans etc etc - you can buy this at any home and kitchen store, but I personally love these two - https://amzn.to/2RWPBoU or https://amzn.to/2CTuzDi 

Donut Pans (6 and/or 20) I swear by these specific ones by Wilton! Note that all recipes in the recipe e-book are using the regular sized donut pans of either the 2 pack of the 6 cavity ones or the 20 cavity donut pans. I'm sure you could use the same batter for the 12 cavity mini donut pan, too (I just haven't tried it yet so can't say for sure)!:
6 regular sized donut pan - https://amzn.to/2RY6iAz 
20 regular sized donut pan - https://amzn.to/2COWAvP
12 mini sized donut pan - https://amzn.to/2CQYXOY

^ A quick note on these pans above, lightly grease them with coconut oil prior to placing the donut batter inside, it helps a lot when you're taking them out!

My all time FAV blender for blending up my homemade nut milk for these recipes & for a whole lot more, it's been my ride or die for 6+ years - https://amzn.to/2CQHoi2 
This one is the one I started out with yeaaarssss ago that's great, too - https://amzn.to/2q06sKU 

I personally have and use the wildside+ jar, the fourside jar, the blendtec spatula & twisterjar. The model of the blendtec I use is the 575 classic in Caribbean blue! I LOVE the blendtec! Love love love!

My FAV nut milk bag I use for making homemade nut milks (I use this like 3-5x per week minimum) - https://amzn.to/2RIEyQ7 (for Canada) & this one is awesome, too - https://amzn.to/2NJViU5 (Worldwide)

Notes:


*I use the Bob’s Red Mill baking powder and baking soda, but you can use ordinary baking soda & baking powder, too! Works just as good, just a personal preference.

*As for the coconut sugar...I’m sure you can use other sugars as well, there’s tons of sweeteners! Play around with what you like best here but I recommend using an actual sweetener as opposed to 0 calorie and artificial sweeteners. Always do your research as a consumer. I personally like to stick with organic coconut sugar when baking my donut babies and haven't strayed away from using it so if you're using a different sweetener, results may differ a tad. In my other baking, I love to use things like bananas, applesauce etc for sweetness, too! For the donuts, I stick to organic coconut sugar.

*For the almond milk, I use either my own unsweetened homemade almond milk, which I’ve included 3 of my go-to ways to make almond/nut milk for you on pages 44 and 45 in my Damned if I Do, Damned if I Donut recipe e-book. Or, sometimes, I use the above listed almond milks. You can also substitute any non-dairy milk of your choice (coconut, rice, hemp, cashew, oat, etc). Should work just fine!

*I use pink Himalayan sea salt, but you can use regular salt or sea salt too!

Full disclosure: I do earn a small commission from the links above, no pressure onto using those links, I just put them there for convenience and because I get asked so many times as to what exact things and ingredients I personally use and recommend. If you do use these links above, thank you for supporting me and my lil' donut venture! XOXO
