Apple Cinnamon Rolls with Caramel Cream Cheese Icing

It’s fall, and I’ve got apples on my mind: apple pie, apple cider, cider doughnuts, basically anything apple. I was really in the mood to make apple something, but I was also in the mood to make bread or something yeasty. I thought about chop chop bread, but quickly thought of good old fashioned cinnamon…

Old Fashioned Mini Glazed Yeast Doughnuts

What do you do when you’re watching a tense election and have nervous energy to burn?  Make old fashioned mini glazed yeast doughnuts!  I can’t think of a time when I’m not in the mood for doughnuts.  They’re quietly becoming their own food group for me.  Since I making doughnuts occurred spontaneously while watching the…

Pumpkin Doughnuts

It’s officially pumpkin season in my house!  While I’ve never been a huge pumpkin fan in the past, I’ve come to embrace it and couldn’t wait to make these pumpkin doughnuts for Miles. I’ve never met a kid so into pumpkin.  For me, I think my pumpkin love stops at sweets.  Mainly breakfast sweets.  I’m…

Bing Cherry Doughnuts

My recipe for bing cherry doughnuts was completely inspired by the 7-11 slurpee doughnut that debuted about a month ago.  It looked so pretty and pink and reminded me of the strawberry doughnuts I ate as a child.  I’ve decided to create my own version.  I course debated for a while over where or not…

Pistachio Mini Doughnuts with Vanilla Glaze

I was recently contacted to develop a recipe for a pistachio company.  How exciting!  It’s a new up and coming company called Hellas Farms.  They’ve produced a naturally sundried Greek pistachio that is slow roasted with a touch of sea salt.  I’m always up for a challenge and I like working with people and companies…

Quick Small Batch Cinnamon Rolls

The other day I was in the mood for something sweet. Actually I was in the mood for cinnamon rolls, but didn’t want to go through the hassle of making them. Until I looked in the fridge and saw half a loaf of frozen bread dough. I wanted to make something that I could serve…

Donut Waffles

I’m still trying to get donuts out of my system.  Over the past few weeks, I’ve baked and fried them, but I needed to try to make them another way.  I decided to waffle them.  Yup, I made donut waffles.  I wasn’t sure whether or not to use a cake based recipe or a yeast…

Sour Cream Doughnuts

  After spending the past couple of weeks baking donuts, I found myself craving a good old-fashioned sour cream fried donut.  I found a fantastic recipe that makes perfect crispy on the outside, dense and moist on the inside sour cream donut.  My favorite sour cream donut was the one my parents and I would…

Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

I think the third time was the charm for my baked donut experiment.  I’m in love with these cinnamon sugar donuts!  I’ve finally gotten used to the fact that the donuts are not going to be golden brown on both sides, so that was another major mental accomplishment! These donuts are by far the closest…

Apple Cider Donuts with Caramel Apple Glaze

These apple cider donuts with caramel apple glaze is my second attempt at using my new donut pan.  I’ve found that filling these pans is like filling a cupcake pan.  Too much batter and it overflows and too little leaves you with something that looks like a teething biscuit. I really enjoyed this donut.  It…

Funfetti Donuts

I finally bought my first donut pan. I’ve seen so many great recipes for baked donuts that I needed to try it for myself, so get ready for a lot of donut posts!!! I decided to start with the funfetti donut.  I was pretty excited to try out the new pan, so what better way…

Apple Fritters

I’ve been so into donuts lately.  Every time I go out of town, I have to go to the new donut shop and try something.  I tend to buy at least 3 or 4, take a bite and share them with my friends.  I go through phases of making them at home too although I…
