I am pretty sure that the smell of warm, yummy donuts is about the best aroma on earth. We live right near a Krispy Kreme donut bakery and the kids love getting them on a Saturday morning for a special treat. I decided to try my hand at making homemade donuts as a pre Valentine's Day breakfast.
The donut recipes I came across online all seemed very simple so I bought myself a donut pan on Amazon and got to work! If you would like to treat your kids on Valentine's Day (or any day!) I highly recommend you try out this donut recipe!
The batter for this donut recipe was incredibly easy but I did add WAY too much batter to the pans. As they baked, these homemade donuts looked more like muffins as they rose up out of the pan and lost the donut hole completely!
Well, I am definitely not the perfect cook but they tasted so heavenly I decided to share the recipe anyhow. Just make sure you fill the donut pan only half full unless you want cranberry almond muffins instead of donuts! Still tasty, just not quite a donut!
