13 Times You Should Make the Donuts


The following breakfast recipes are not healthy.

Heck, they may not even be breakfast recipes, really.

But whatever. Who cares? Not every meal or snack item has to fit squarely into your diet, does it?

It’s okay to simply settle on delicious sometimes, especially when you consider the following types of donuts.

As a certain spokesperson once said, stop what you’re doing and focus: it’s time to make the donuts!

  1. Mocha Chocolate Chip Donuts Recipe

    • I realized this week that I haven’t used my donut pan in a while, so I dug it out of the box in the basement. No wonder I do not use it very often… out of sight, out of mind. That’s how the veggies in our refrigerator must feel too. Yeah, I should probably be …
  2. Baked Samoa Donuts Recipe

    • I have fond memories of Girl Scouts. I was a member through elementary school, and cookie season was of course the highlight of the year, right above the summer camp those cookie dollars paid for. Back then, selling cookies meant having your parents take the order form to work or smiling your way through a …

    • Just because it’s the new year doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy donuts, right? I mean, I know this is the time of year we usually eat healthier and try to better ourselves, but I say that a life without donuts is not one I want to be living. After all, if you deny yourself treats, you’ll just …

    • I was never much of a red velvet fan. It’s not that I didn’t like it, I just never thought too much about it. Somehow that changed this year, and I’ve developed a full-blown obsession. I have been making red velvet eeevvvvveerrrything! Cupcakes? Check. Ice cream? Check? Chocolate bark?! Check. And these red velvet waffles are on the to-do …

    • It’s baaaack. Let’s face it, peanut butter never left. Also, I went on a donut frenzy in the last few weeks. I really went crazy with donuts. More to come on that.  What can I say? This was bound to happen and we both know it! There are two foods I would take with me …

    • I’ve been trying to eat better lately, indulging in fewer sweets and upping my vegetable game. Not going to lie, though — for someone who grew up eating pretty much every kind of junk food there is, this a long-term battle. I want to have my whole family eating better for the sake of our …
  7. Baked Pumpkin Spice Donuts Recipe
    • Baked Pumpkin Spice Donuts Photo
    • I have not made donuts for entirely too long. I bought a donut pan eons ago (or about a year) and have only used it once, to make these wonderful banana bread donuts that we really, really loved. And then I forgot all about the donut pan as it sat in the cupboard and never got used. …
  8. Red Velvet Peppermint Donuts Recipe
    • Red Velvet Peppermint Donuts Photo
    • Every year as I was growing up, one of my sisters and I had a pact. If we knew what the other one was getting for Christmas, we would spill the beans to each other. Of course, we knew where our mom hid the presents too, so we also would sneak around trying to see what …
  9. Gluten Free Funfetti Cake Donuts Recipe

    • This year for my daughter’s birthday, I decided to do things a bit differently. Typically, we always have an afternoon party; however, I thought why not have a breakfast party instead? She is happiest in the morning and we are already up by 6am because of the kids, so that was the best option for us. Now, …
  10. Cinnamon Roll Donuts Recipe

    • I have a MAJOR weakness for coffee-house style baked goods. Big, fat, fluffy, over-sized pillows of baked goodness. YES. These cinnamon roll donuts are exactly that. They are the kind of impressive treat you’d happily shell out $4.95 for at your neighborhood cafe. I based the recipe on my blackberry sticky buns which were based on a …
  11. Blueberry Key Lime Donuts Recipe

    • Any time I eat Key lime, I can’t help but go back 18 years to our honeymoon. It was the first time I enjoyed a true Key lime pie, so now my mind always relives that trip each time I enjoy anything with Key lime now. My husband and I had so much fun in …

    • Baked donuts have become a thing for us recently. Our family has always loved donuts — who doesn’t? — but I finally purchased a donut baking pan and now we are crazy for them. Making them at home is actually easy and much cheaper than buying them every weekend at the store. When my daughter had a …
  13. Lemon Cheesecake Donuts Recipe
    • Lemon Cheesecake Donuts Photo
    • I made us a treat. I married cheesecake and donuts. I thought about putting the cheesecake into the donut batter and making this very tasty pairing happen that way. But… they weren’t cheesecake-ey enough. I also thought about making traditional donuts and filling them with cheesecake. But… when it boils down to it, I kind of hate frying …
