What is the most popular pregnancy craving in Hollywood? The Hollywood Hot Moms all crave donuts! Tina Fey admits to eating a box of donuts a day during part of her pregnancy! Ashlee Simpson, Nicole Richie, Liv Tyler, Samantha Harris, Christina Aguilera, Claudia Schiffer and Milla Jovovich are just some of the Hollywood Hot Moms who reportedly craved donuts during their pregnancies. You do not have to be a pregnant celebrity to crave these tasty treats. Did you know you can make donuts quickly and easily at home? Baked donuts make a sweet breakfast or yummy snack, and with less calories than a fried donut, you can indulge your donut craving often. These delicious mini donuts are made using the Bella Cucina Mini Donut Maker. This handy little machine helps make donuts fresh and fast and will make you very popular with the kids (or pregnant celebrities) on Saturday mornings. Basic Donut Recipe from Bella Cucina Artful Food 1 cup flour 1/2 cup sugar 1 tbsp baking powder 1 egg 1/2 cup milk 1/2 tsp vanilla 4 tbsp cooking oil Stir dry ingredients together. Add egg, vanilla and milk and beat 1 minute with an electric mixer or vigorously by hand. Add oil and continue to beat 1 minute. The instruction manual suggests oiling the donut maker before using and also spraying with cooking spray. In other words, more is better when it comes to oil to prevent sticking. Drop a spoonful of donut batter in to each donut compartment. Work quickly in order to ensure even cooking for each donut. After filling each compartment with batter, close the donut maker and in just 1-2 minutes the lights on the donut maker will change color indicating that your donuts are ready. You can pop each donut out with a fork or your fingers, but do be careful as they will be hot. While these donuts are DELICIOUS plain, you have many options for topping the donuts. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, make up a plain or chocolate glaze, or go all out and top with some Wiltons Melts chocolate and your favorite sprinkles. Follow the directions on your chocolate melts, and once melted dip each donut in your chocolate then add your sprinkles. Allow your chocolate to set until firm and then enjoy! The Wiltons Melts are a great option if you are going to be transporting your donuts (what a fun addition to a brunch or party!). Now sit back with a glass of milk and enjoy the same treat that Hollywood’s Hot Moms simply must have during pregnancy!
