Mini Chocolate Doughnuts with Coconut Glaze

I got a wonderful gift for my birthday a few months ago: a Babycakes Doughnut Maker. I've wanted to use it, but haven't had any real reason to make doughnuts. But, today I had my bestest friend over. We wanted to make brownies, but didn't have the ingredients, so we decided mini chocolate doughnuts would be good instead. And boy were they good! Just look at these!

1 egg
1/2 cup water
7 Tbsp + 2 Tbsp melted butter (separated)
2-3 tsp milk
1 package of doughnut baking mix (chocolate with coconut glaze)
       This includes a chocolate doughnut mix and coconut glaze mix

First, whisk together egg, water, and 7 Tbsp of melted butter.
Then, stir in the doughnut mix until it is well combined.The resulting batter will be very sticky. But that's ok.
Meanwhile, preheat the doughnut maker. Once it has been preheated, pipe or spoon about 1 1/2 Tbsp of batter into the greased cooking reservoirs.
Bake the doughnuts for about 4 minutes. Then, remove the cooked doughnuts from the doughnut maker and repeat with the remaining batter.
While the doughnuts cool for at least 5 minutes, combine the glaze mix with 2 Tbsp of melted butter.
Then, add in milk, one teaspoon at a time, until it reaches a thick smooth texture. This is where I made a slight mistake. The box wrote tsp with a capital T, which meant that I misread it and added 2 Tablespoons. Don't do this! But if you do, simply spoon out as much of the milk as you can, then add in powdered sugar until your glaze reaches the desired texture.
Finally,dip the tops of your cooled doughnuts into the glaze. I found it easiest to dip the tops in, and then spin them slightly to gain full and even coverage on the doughnuts. Allow the glaze to harden before serving.

These were so delicious. For the best results, you should avoid overmixing the batter and be careful not to overfill the cooking reservoirs. Also, much like with other makers, try not to check on the doughnuts in the first couple minutes of baking, because opening the lid too early may cause the halves to separate.
I highly recommend making this recipe. It's so tasty. I can't wait to make more doughnuts like these.
