One of Christian’s favorite things to do on a Saturday off is to go to our little neighborhood donut shop and pick out his weekend donuts.  So a little while back I surprised my sweets-loving significant other with a donut pan thinking we (more like I) could learn to make donuts together.  Fun idea, right!?

This pan sat in our cabinet for almost a year before I took the time to find a recipe and try out some baked donuts for myself. No excuses.  Sidenote:  I like how people use that saying “no excuses” for exercise and I use it for donut recipes.  That really says a lot about me.  #CarbsForever

This recipe was so darling and I knew I had to use it for my first whirl with my donut pan.  Sprinkles!! What’s not to love?

This recipe made nine donuts and I stored them in an airtight container.  They stayed fresh for three days and lasted no longer. Success!  Have you made homemade donuts before?  I’d love to hear what you thought.  Thanks so much for reading – XO

  1. I’ve always wanted to make donuts, but do not have a pan. Therefore, I was thrilled when I found a recipe for paczkis that didn’t need one (aka fried in oil in a cast iron skillet). I was so excited that I jumped right into the recipe and forgot to invite anyone over. Before I knew it I had 20 paczkis all to myself. Luckily it was Fat Tuesday, and calories don’t count on that day, right?! 🙂

    1. Confession: my friend shared that if you cut up biscuit dough and drop it in a fry daddy you can sprinkle them with powdered sugar and they taste like beignets.

      It’s amazing. I could eat a whole batch by myself!

      And yes, Fat Tuesday is a total food hall pass. 100%.

    1. The little baking pan seriously makes it so easy! If you give it a try let me know what you think!

  2. I love baking but I’m yet to try homemade donuts. This post definitely gave me some inspiration!


  3. I found a recipe in Real Simple this past fall for pumpkin donuts and they were delicious! I like to pretend that if you bake the donuts then they can’t be bad for you 😉

    1. Ok, now THAT sounds amazing! I’m totally making those this fall!
