The Doughnut Project

My friend and I began our second day in NYC at The Doughnut Project in the West Village. My goal was to sample their breakout doughnut and then a plain glazed (I have a thing about trying the most basic item on the menu when it comes to doughnuts and cupcakes). It seems that The…

202 Donuts and Coffee

202 Donuts & Coffee was another donut shop I found on a top 10 list, giving me the opportunity to 1) finally see Bethesda and 2) try another donut shop.  I picked up my friend and we headed north.  I think we passed this shop about three times as it was on a small side…

Sugar Shack

I seem to be on the never ending quest for donuts these days.  They’ve replaced cupcakes, something I was obsessed with a few years ago.  Every time I see and article touting the best 10 donut shops in the city, I have to try all of them because I’m curious to see what makes one…

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…

Doughnut Vault

  I was hoping to make it to a few more doughnut shops while in Chicago, but demand was high and my time was short.  Every time I was able to get to a shop, most shops already ran out of doughnuts.  This almost happened to me with the Doughnut Vault.  I was lucky enough…

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…

Maple Bacon Glazed Donuts

My son had a friend sleepover and I took them to see Godzilla.  It was hilarious!  I don’t think it was the films’ intention to be hilarious, but my son, his friend, the audience and I laughed for at least half of the film.  The special effects were great by the way.  While we were…

Old-Fashioned Glazed Yeast Donuts

  This recipe is my ode to Homer Simpson. I recently bought the Lego Simpsons House (I’m a huge Lego and Simpsons fan) and the most adorably small Cuisinart deep fryer. My goal was to eat donuts while putting the house together. Since I’ve been having fun with my mom’s roll dough, I wanted to see…
