These homemade mini donuts are quite the treat, offering a modern take on a bruleed dessert made with brown butter, sweet sugar and cinnamon. Lifestyle and food blogger teaches bakers how to make these donuts at home in several easy steps.

Making donuts can be a labor-intensive process since the dough often requires rising time. These donuts are made from active dry yeast, water, sugar, flour, salt, butter and eggs. Once the dough has set, it is then rolled into into mini donut holes and deep fried. The donuts are then glazed in a layer of sugar that can then be bruleed and caramelized using a blow torch. This technique replicates the crispy sugar effect found on the popular French custard.
