Baking Donuts with Kids + King Arthur Flour Giveaway

King Arthur Flour Mini Donuts & Giveaway

One of things we’ve been a LOT of this winter is baking. Baking is one of those activities that is universally enjoyed by everyone in my house. My daughter and I could spend hours in the kitchen mixing up batters and doughs if given the opportunity. In February we had a lot of fun participating in King Arthur Flour’s Family Fun month by getting in the kitchen and making donuts. It will probably come as no surprise to learn that my daughter is a donut fanatic. Isn’t every kid?!

Since my daughter sometimes gets a little bored measuring ingredients we skipped that part and started with an awesome King Arthur Flour mix for buttermilk donuts. There were still a few directions for her to read (her favorite) but it was nice not to have to start from scratch. Once the batter was smooth and in the pan we waited, somewhat impatiently, for the donuts to rise. While they were rising we did our best to occupy ourselves thinking about the absolute most important thing about a donut: the topping!

King Arthur flour generously sent me a block of caramel (OMG, amazing!), as well as some glazing sugar, and an assortment of sprinkles. We wanted to use all of them. And we did! As you can see below, we made a whole assortment of donuts that were beyond delicious and were well worth the effort. I was also so pleased that this fun project distracted both of my kids from the sleet hitting the windows. They are so sick of being stuck indoors!

To get you in the kitchen with your little ones this winter King Arthur Flour is generously giving away a mini-donut kit for your family to enjoy. It will include 1 box buttermilk donut mix, 1 mini-donut pan, 1 block caramel, pretty sprinkles, 1 bottle boiled cider. Here is how you can enter to win!

1) Share the favorite thing you like to make together with your family in the kitchen. It can be anything!

2) Subscribe to Kelsey Banfield on Facebook.

3) Contest runs from February 27th at 7:00am through March 8th at 7:00am ET. Winner will be announced in the March 9th newsletter. Good luck!

    We like to make eggrolls together, makes the work go much faster and they are so much better and healthier than getting them out, (we use an actifry and can make up to 8 with 1Toil.)

    We make a big production out of making spaghetti (nursing the sauce for hours and them slowly heating the meatballs in the sauce); it’s a family thing.
