I've had so much fun with the mini-donut pan serendipitously acquired during the winter holidays. This South of the Border recipe inspired by the rich, spicy flavors of the ancient Mayan culture is sure to please breakfast pastry fans who love a little punch of heat. Plus, since they're baked, you can almost feel healthy about eating a few!
