I never thought I'd say a donut was "just okay." But that's how I felt about these Cinnamon Donut Holes from Sarah Kramer's 2011 Go Vegan Wall Calendar:
I've LOVED every recipe I've ever made from Sarah, so I'm blaming my oven for this. My oven has failed me a few times before, and I didn't consult an oven thermometer first because I'm lazy like that.
But I had high hopes for these little cinnamon-coated boogers! They sound so yummy, and actually they taste yummy too. It's the texture that's just a little too dry for me. Fresh out of the oven last night, they were perfect. But as they cooled, the cakey donuts dried out on the insides. I intended to take these to work today, but since most of my co-workers are omnis, I only like to feed them recipes that turn out just right.
However, I didn't want to waste, so I dunked a few of these holes in a little soymilk to soften. And they were perfect. I've always had a thing for baked good dipped in liquid (true story: when I was in kindergarten, I liked to dip my Oreos in my cherry Kool-Aid during refreshment time at school).
Anyway, I'll probably eat all of these dipped in soymilk, and they're also better when heated in the microwave for a few seconds.
What do you do when baked goods don't come out as planned?
