Baked donut ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup skim milk
  • 2 tablespoons cannabutter
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg

Glaze ingredients

  • ½ cup icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of salt

Tools

  • Cooking spray
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Whisk
  • Small mixing bowl
  • Spoon
  • Two medium mixing bowls
  • Ziploc bag
  • Donut pan
  • Wire rack
  • Parchment paper
  • Scissors

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  2. Pour all of the dry donut ingredients into a large bowl and then blend them together with a whisk.

  3. In a small mixing bowl, combine the wet ingredients until smooth.

  4. Now slowly add the bowl of wet ingredients to the dry ones, using a spoon to gently fold them together. Keep going until there are no more chunks of flour left behind, but at the same time, too much mixing will leave the baked donuts flat, so be careful.

  5. Scoop the donut batter into a large Ziploc baggie and seal it up.

  6. Use scissors to cut one corner from the bag, then fill the donut molds approximately ¾ of the way full of the batter.

  7. Bake the donuts in the oven for 10 minutes.

  8. Cover a baking rack in parchment paper, and once they are done, place the donuts one by one on the stand to cool.

  9. While you wait, it’s the perfect time to prepare some delicious chocolate glaze. Do so by adding the vanilla, salt, cocoa powder, and powdered sugar to a bowl, and blend them together.

  10. Now slowly add one teaspoon of milk at a time until your chocolate glaze reached the ideal consistency to suit your taste.

  11. Dip the top portion of each (still warm) donut into the chocolate glaze, then return them to the parchment paper to set.

How many of these weed-filled baked donuts per person?

The truth is that without knowing how potent of a blend you used to infuse the dish, there is no way to predict how many might be too many, which is why it’s a good idea to start low and go slow. First, have just one with a thick layer of chocolate glaze, and then give it a couple of hours to kick in. By then, the majority of the effects will have taken hold, so it will be a relatively safe time to decide whether or not you might want more.

The effects of edibles

There is a tonne of hype surrounding edibles, and it’s not anywhere near as many as they make it seem, with most experienced cannabis consumers reporting enhance but relatively expected effects. However, first-time users are prone to episodes that are often referred to as a green out, where they might get the spins, feel sick, or experience intense bouts of fear, paranoia, and other emotions. The peak of the effects from edibles usually comes within two hours of ingestion, but unlike with smoking, they won’t just wear off in 30 minutes.

Edibles are absorbed through the stomach lining, which is what makes them take so much longer to work, but that also means that the effects can linger around for quite some time after the initial ingestion. The buzz from smoking a joint is generally going away within 30 minutes, but marijuana edibles can continue to impact for up to 12 hours. That’s a really long time, so don’t think that you will need more to keep the buzz going all night, as chances are if you feel them now, they will likely still be there once you are ready to close your eyes and get some sleep for the night.
