Mini Churro Donuts with Homemade Dulce de Leche

So since I made some dulce de leche this weekend, I decided I needed to use it for something.  I already made Churro Cupcakes, I had to come up with another bright idea.  I hadn't made donuts in a while, so why not churro donuts.  I pulled out my Babycakes mini donut maker and set to work.

I flipped through the recipes that came with the machine and found one for Buttermilk Spice Donuts which I adapted to a cinnamon donut.  And since I never have buttermilk on hand, I just used regular milk and white vinegar.

I did learn one thing new from Love From the Oven website.  She glazes her donuts before adding any toppings, to keep the donuts moist.  That sounded like a reasonable idea.

I could have eaten it just like this.  Ok fine I did eat one just with the glaze, well ok..maybe two, but who's counting.  The recipe makes plenty to spare.

But in my defense, I did get some help from this guy, who woke up from his nap in the middle of my glazing.

He was my first taste tester.  He gave me a thumbs up in the recipe.  The rest of his hand was busy shoving the donut in his mouth.

    For the Homemade Dulce de Leche
    For the Donuts
    Mix milk and vinegar together and set aside for 5-10 minutes until it forms curds.
    Meanwhile using a hand mixer or stand mixer, beat together oil and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Stir in the milk/vinegar and mix well.
    Stir together the dry ingredients and slowly add to to the wet ingredients, making sure to have a nice smooth mixture.
    Use a piping bag or a Ziplock bag with tip cut off to fill each donut reservoir with about 2 tbsp of batter.
    Bake for about 4-5 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of donut comes out clean.
    Place hot donuts on cooling rack with a wax paper underneath and prepare the glaze.
    For the Glaze
    In a small bowl mix together powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk. You want the consistency to be runny, not thick.
    Dip each donut in the mixture and flip it around by hand or with a fork until the whole donut is covered. Then place back on the cooling rack until the glaze is dry.
    For the Dulce de Leche
    Once the glaze dries, spread the homemade dulce de leche over each donut. Eat and enjoy!
