Gretchen from Three Little Monkeys studio styled this adorable Donuts and Sprinkles Party for Everyday Party Magazine’s third issue. She shared her recipes for donuts and sprinkles, strawberry milk and glaze as well. This was such a sweet little party for her little ones, with junk food that you can almost feel good about giving your little ones!
Donuts and Sprinkles Recipes
from Fall 2013 issue
2 c flour
3/4 c sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 T shortening
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 c milk
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat over to 325 degrees.
Lightly grease a mini donut pan with cooking spray and set aside.
In a bowl, mix first four ingredients.
Then add shortening, eggs, milk and vanilla to the dry and mix and gently mix.
Fill each donut cavity 2/3 full. Tip: I used a pancake pen (Tovolo Pancake Pen) to fill the cavities. Easy and mess free!
Bake for 8-9 minutes until the tops spring back.
Allow to cool.
1 c. powdered sugar
2 T hot water
Mix sugar and water together in a small bowl, and whisk until smooth.
Consistency will be runny, but will make a nice glaze.
Homemade Strawberry Milk
2 c fresh strawberries, sliced
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c water
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 c of milk(cow, rice or almond)
Place the strawberries, sugar, water, lemon juice, and vanilla in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil.
Lower the heat to medium low and simmer, stirring often, until mixture thickens into a syrup (about 10 min).
Strain the strawberry syrup into a bowl, pressing the solids into the strainer with the back of a spatula or spoon to extract all of the strawberry goodness. Discard solids (or freeze for smoothies!).
Chill the strawberry syrup in the refrigerator.
Once chilled, add 2 tablespoons of the strawberry syrup into an 8oz glass of milk and stir.
