52 Donuts - #5 Cornbread

I know, I know... I might be pushing it a little with this one, but I had the batter so I decided to pour a little into the donut maker to see how they'd turn out.


Doug scoffed a bit, saying these weren't really donuts, but I beg to differ.
Cornbread made in a muffin tin becomes cornbread muffins, right?


Ok, then.
Cornbread donuts.


The verdict:  These were really good, but a little crumbly and didn't hold their shape very well once you picked them up. I hadn't made the cornbread batter from scratch this time - used a Marie Calendars mix which tends to be a bit more cake-like. I thought they were a cute little addition to a bowl of chili.

And besides, it puts me one step closer to my goal.

They look appetizing and make a beautiful presentation. About the crumbling... I like mine mixed with chili, anyway.

I have no idea what cornbread is - but I like the idea of presenting mini-donuts at the side of savoury dishes (or sweet ones). I have two 12 mini-donut baking pans an have regularly made 3,000,000 mini-donuts (or so it seemed) for school & scout bake-sales ... just wondering if a bread or dumpling mix would work now ...

They certainly LOOK good with the chili...10/10 for presentation!

Who knew! Since I have a very deep love for both cornbread and chili, I'd say it was a win-win! Very cute idea! xoxo

Good way to vary your theme and not have to do frosting again. Good move :0)

My mind is racing ahead to week 52 .... what will you be putting in that machine by then?! This is a pretty practical idea though and I can imagine it was delicious!

Well they look cute nestled along side the chilli. Very inventive!

I think you are very clever, and the chili looks good too.

I ADORE these! Glad you got out of the donut maker recipe book and even happier that you had good results.

They look yummy and sure if they're made in a donut maker - they're donuts. :)

Sounds good to me. Chili and cornbread is definitely a favorite here.
