Baked Maple Donuts


The good news is I am actually using my donut pan.  The bad news is I am using my donut pan and I need to up the frequency of my exercise L  I never even really liked donuts, they were an occasional treat and not even something I craved.  Since I started baking donuts I crave donuts, lots and lots of donuts.  I want to make donuts and keep thinking of different types to experiment with.  This week one of the donuts (yes I said 1, I told you I am using the pans too much) I experimented with was Baked Maple Donuts. 

The donuts are a pleasing combination of maple and brown sugar.  They have just the right amount of sweetness and really don’t need a frosting, just a light vanilla glaze to enhance the flavor.  Hope they add to your Sweet Mornings.

NOTE: I think these donuts are better after they have cooled and really enjoy them the next day.
