Donuts or Doughnuts?

Y’all, can I just tell you about how much
this girl LOVES donuts? Glazed, powdered, frosted or sprinkled, I love them

More times than not, I will gladly stop at
the Krispy Kreme down the street when the neon red “HOT” sign is illuminated. But
if you follow me on Instagram, you already knew that. I just can’t resist an 89
cent fresh, hot donut that has just passed through a waterfall of glaze.

So I decided to finally buy a donut pan. I
promise not to turn the blog into my adventures in donut making, unless of
course you all love donuts as much as I do. Anyway, here are a few donut
recipes that are likely to debut ASAP in my kitchen…

Lemon Poppy Seed Donuts from The Novice Chef


Baked Apple Doughnuts {with Caramel Drizzle} from Bakers Royale

Banana Chocolate Chip Baked Doughnuts from Janie’s Kitchen

Baked Maple Donuts {grain free} from Dashing Dish

Glazed Pumpkin Buttermilk Donuts from Barefoot and Baking

Do you own a donut pan? Any tips on using
it? Feel free to pass along your favorite donut recipe!

    I got my friend the "Babycakes Covers The Classics" cookbook and we're going to try out the vegan donuts. Hope they turn out, and I hope you have fun making yours!

    Those donut photos you showed in the blog look delicious….I could never make a dozen donuts for only myself and my husband….eating that many donuts for just the two of us, is way too much processed sugar and carbs. My panceas would be working overtime to counteract the sugar.To control the amount of sweets we eat…we will buy one donut at a time for each of us.Has your weight stayed the same since you got married and added another birthday to your age?? Either you are working out a lot or you are eating small portion sizes of all the delicious food you are showing on your blog.I noticed that when I turned 28, I really had to watch what I ate, or before I new it, I was buying larger size clothing. I call it weight creep, because it happens so gradually.

      Hi anonymous,Most of the time I share my baked goods with friends/coworkers/etc, otherwise we would eat them all. My weight has always fluctuated by 3 lbs, before and after marriage, and I definitely have to work out to keep it that way!Would love for you to publicly "follow" my blog using Google Friend Connect in my sidebar.xo, Christina

    I've seriously considered buying a donut pan! I'll have to see how it works out for you! My office is directly across the street (a small, non-busy street) from the new KK in Cotswold. Needless to say, I get tempted multiple times a day and coworkers are always bringing some in. Love / hate it!!

    Yum! I would attempt this but I am not so good with the super difficult cakes. Unless they are easy? They just seem difficult. We had a Krispy Kreme run on Saturday night and it was delightful.

    I've never had a hot Krispy Kreme before. I should probably change this soon as a donut lover. I totally nabbed 2 vanilla long johns at Kwik Trip for $1. I'm terrible going in there in the afternoon when all the goodies are reduced. I may have to put a donut pan on my registry with these fun recipes to try!

    I broke myself of donuts when I was in my early 20's. (even though I had a few while pregnant).I was a total sucker for them and FAT because of it. :(Good for you though. You are still able to eat them and stay tiny!!! I'm envious!!

    This looks like another specialized piece of kitchen equipment that will be used initially and then forgotten and sit in the cabinet gathering dust.A waste of money if you ask me….too trendy and it is not a NEED!!!

    Um yeah doughnuts are nutso delicious and now that Colleen lives near that Krispy Kreme (and you I think?!) things have gotten a little out of control for us when it comes to doughnuts. Can't wait to see how they turn out. I want a doughnut pan too.
