I stuck to the recipe instructions yet was all out of buttermilk and so I used normal semi skimmed dairy milk (mother isn't a vegan!) So here it is, the final product...
and not forgetting the 'close up' shot =]
All in all, after my mother trying one, I was surprised about the texture of these mini 'things'. It is true that they are somewhere in between a muffin and doughnut in terms of texture, but she liked it. "They're cute little bite size treats" =]
I wasn't brave enough to try one as they are not 'vegan' but perhaps I could do a tad of tweeking =]
