All the flavors of a gooey cinnamon bun with cream cheese icing baked into a doughnut! The perfect way to celebrate Doughnut Appreciation Day.
According to this handy little website, it is Doughnut Appreciation Day! I know there is a National Doughnut Day in June, but I fully support having two days a year when we can celebrate the mighty doughnut. If you follow my blog regularly, you probably think that I celebrate doughnuts on a weekly basis. I have been obsessed with making them ever since I bought this amazing doughnut pan!

I have been dreaming about pumpkin doughnuts ever since I made these. They were SO good. But I always like to try out new recipes (and then share them with you!), so I went on the hunt for a different pumpkin doughnut recipe. It didn’t take me long to find one. Pumpkin recipes have really exploded in the past month. Everywhere I look, there is pumpkin – Pinterest, food blogs, Instagram pix. But I am not complaining, I am also pumpkin obsessed! There is just something about the color and flavor that screams fall. Continue reading →
It’s official: I am doughnut obsessed. Ever since I bought my doughnut pan and made these beauties, I am hooked. I can’t stop looking up doughnut recipes. There are so many amazing ones out there! But I am pretty sure this one from Joy the Baker might be the most amazing. A brown butter doughnut with chocolate glaze. And sprinkles. OMG yes please! Continue reading →
I can’t even tell you how excited I am to post this recipe. I have seen so many delicious doughnut recipes on Pinterest lately, and I just had to get involved. So I bought two of these doughnut pans the other weekend and literally could not wait to put them to use! And what better recipe to start with than a pumpkin doughnut! I am happy to report they did not disappoint. Thebetterhalf, a doughnut connoisseur, was skeptical about the concept of a baked doughnut, and he LOVED these.
The texture is remarkably similar to a cake doughnut, but a bit lighter. The pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices give the most delicious flavor and the cinnamon sugar coating ties the whole thing together. I snuck a few bites plain and these doughnuts are fantastic even without the cinnamon sugar.
This recipe makes enough for 15 doughnuts, and the pans only make 6 each. Luckily in my doughnut pan buying binge, I also picked up this adorable pan. So I used my extra batter to make some pumpkin doughnut holes! You could just bake the doughnuts in a second batch though. I see many more baked doughnut recipes in my future … these are on the menu for Saturday. How incredible do they look?? These new doughnut pans are going to be trouble! Continue reading →
