National Donut Day

grainlady_ksJune 6, 2014

In honor of the day I made a recipe of Chocolate Donuts found at the link below. A nice gluten-free recipe I made in my mini-donut maker and dusted them with powdered Swerve (taste a little like a brownie). The recipe makes 6 donuts, but in the mini-donut maker I made 18.

I need a donut like I need a hole in my head. :-)

But I will go get a few in honor of National Donut Day.

Thank goodness the Krispy Kreme donut shop closed next to my gym! Every time I finished a workout and would go to the car...the Krispy Kreme Hot Light would be flashing (indicating they were just out of the oven) and I couldn't resist.

I gave blood this a.m. and they were saying that it was free donut day at dunkin' donuts, so I went, but found I had to buy a beverage. I didn't need the beverage and DH didn't need the donut so I passed. I haven't had a donut in about 4-5 years. It has so little nutritive value...all saturated fat and sugar.

Yes, indeed, all saturated fat and sugar, I love 'em. I don't have them often but VanBrocklin's Bakery in Big Rapids was voted one of the 10 best donuts in Michigan by MLive readers, so I got a bear claw.

Yes, I know, not really a donut, but they're really, really, good.

Annie - there's a place here called Fleming's Donut Shack that makes an incredible apple fritter. Yeasty, gooey, fried goodness. Sounds like your bear claw. Doesn't need a hole in the middle lol.

Some days we need saturated fat and sugar, and nothing else will do!

We don't need much, just one doughnut's worth.

Maybe just a sugar raised donut from Dunkin' Donuts once a year.

Seagrass, I'm almost ashamed to admit it, but I don't want a hole in the middle of those, they're so good I want every last bit!

Apple fritters are good too...
