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.
