I donut care about donut day. Sorry I just had to say “I Donut Care.” Truly, I love it, especially when so many donut shops give away free donuts to celebrate National Donut Day.
Lately, I’ve been trying all kinds of new recipes, so I thought it would be fun to share some donut recipes that I’d like to try in the future. Some of these are recipes for donuts from scratch and some only require you to pick up a box of pre-made donuts. Enjoy!
Grilled Pineapple Donut Sundaes
This donut sundae sounds like the perfect treat for a hot summer day. Plus, it is officially grilling season, so why not grill a donut on national donut day? This recipe by Jocelyn of Grandbaby Cakes features pineapples, rum sauce, vanilla ice cream, and warm, delicious donuts. Excuse me, I’m salivating.
I love a fresh, classic glazed donut, but it’s so hard for me to get to Krispy Kreme when the Hot Light’s on! If you try this glazed donut recipe by Sally’s Baking Addiction you will have sweet, fried glazed donuts in two hours with enough to share with friends and family.
These twists might remind you of salty pretzels, but don’t be deceived by their appearance. Unlike the classic round donut, this shape makes a delicious texture that’s crispy, fluffy, and buttery all at once. This recipe by Precious Core gives you all the details on how to make these scrumptious bites.
If you’re not trying to spend all morning in the kitchen, this might be up your alley. Instead of making the dough from scratch, this recipe by Jenny Steffens Hobick of JSH Home Essentials uses frozen bread dough for the donuts, and she creates a yummy chocolate glaze to top it off.
Vegan Vanilla Donuts with Sprinkles
Donuts don’t have to be fried and glutinous, these yummy vegan donuts won’t make you feel bad about indulging in sweets and drinking mimosas… at least that’s how I feel. Shanika’s vegan donut recipe on Orchid + Sweet Tea is a healthy alternative you need to try!
Glazed Lemon Poppy Seed Donuts
I love any lemon treat when it’s hot outside, lemonade, lemon bars, limoncello… Limoncello counts right? You get the picture! These lemon poppy seed donuts by the Novice Chef are easy to make with a mini donut maker or donut pans, and they should only take thirty minutes.
