Valentine's mini cardamom donut recipe
If you have a pot at home with sugar decorations in the shape of little pink hearts, you may have to take advantage of Valentine's Day to get them out without being too embarrassed. Or prepare a sweet ñoño and romanticón when you feel like it, let's see if we have to limit the romantic pastry to one day a year.
In reality, the dough of these mini donuts is not the same as the sweet fried dough. This is a quick, light and fairly liquid consistency recipe perfect for use in donut molds. I have used a donut machine, but with suitable molds they can be baked without problems.They are very tender and aromatic, but the special touch is given by the decoration, which can be as sweet and recharged as we want.

Preheat the oven to 200ºC and prepare a tray with mini donut molds, or prepare the donut machine, if you have it. In a medium bowl, mix the flour with the chemical yeast, salt and cardamom. Grate the skin of the orange and rub with the sugar so that it acquires its aroma. Add the egg, milk, vanilla and butter, beating lightly with some sticks.
Incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry ones and mix gently until there is a homogeneous mass. Fill a pastry bag or freezer bag with the dough. Cut the tip and distribute the dough into the cavities of the mold, without filling them completely.
Bake at medium height for about 5 minutes, until golden. Let cool on a rack. Sift the icing sugar into a bowl, add the honey and milk necessary to achieve a creamy and dense texture. Glaze the mini donuts and garnish with decorations to taste.
