Did you know June 3rd marks National Donut Day?
There is actually an entire day devoted to the deep fried dough! I’m a sucker for a good donut don’t get me wrong, but over the years I’ve become a bit snobby about my donuts.
I won’t settle for a mediocre donut.
I’ve found that the donut store donuts often don’t live up the hype, and then I’m left with a donut I don’t really want to eat.
But, then I do and 500 calories later, ugh! Sugar crash. I don’t need to finish my story, you get my point, we’ve all been there, right?
Nevertheless, my mom saved the day a few months ago when she bought me my first donut pan. It was life changing, truly! I’ve been whipping up delicious donuts ever since (like these Mini Maple Cinnamon Donuts!)
What makes a donut “healthier”?
The beauty of making donuts at home is that you get to control your ingredients and make them how YOU want them.
Baking them in the oven creates that crisp brown texture without the deep fried fats.
Plus, you can add variety and season them however you’d like. Think sprinkles, cinnamon, pumpkin pie, chocolate, oh… the list could go on!
