For the Donuts:

- 1 cup all-purpose flour

- 1/4 cup granulated sugar

- 1 teaspoon baking powder

- 1/4 teaspoon salt

- 1/4 cup milk

- 1/4 cup plain yogurt

- 1 large egg

- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- Red food coloring

For the Glaze:

- 1 cup powdered sugar

- 2 tablespoons milk

- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

- Pink or red food coloring

- Sprinkles (optional)


1. Preparing the Donut Batter:

   - In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

   - In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, yogurt, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract.

   - Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.

   - Add a few drops of red food coloring and mix until the batter turns a lovely shade of pink.

   - Transfer the batter to a piping bag fitted with a small round tip or a ziplock bag with a small corner snipped off.

2. Shaping the Mini Heart Donuts:

   - Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a mini heart-shaped donut pan.

   - Pipe the batter into the heart-shaped cavities, filling them about 2/3 full.

   - Gently tap the pan on the counter to remove any air bubbles and smooth the tops.

   - Bake for approximately 8-10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the donuts comes out clean.

   - Allow the donuts to cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

3. Glazing and Decorating:

   - In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth.

   - Add a few drops of pink or red food coloring and mix until the glaze reaches your desired shade of pink.

   - Dip each cooled mini heart donut into the glaze, allowing any excess glaze to drip off.

   - Place the glazed donuts on a wire rack set over a baking sheet to catch any drips.

   - If desired, add sprinkles on top of the glaze for an extra touch of cuteness and texture.

4. Serving and Enjoying:

   - Allow the glaze to set for a few minutes before serving.

   - Arrange the mini heart donuts on a platter or in a cute box, ready to be devoured with love.
