I love fried donuts. I love the crunchy-sweet of maple-glazed old fashioned. I love the sweet cinnamon bite of bear claws. I love messy jelly-filled powdered-sugar-coated donuts.
What I don’t love is how I feel after I eat them. All greasy and bloated and sugar high. And I really don’t like how my kid behaves when she feels all greasy and sugar-high after the rare family donut outing.
Recently I decided I wanted to try making donuts at home, but not quite like the ones we get at the donut shop down the street that make us feel so ick. I wanted to make a baked donut that was more satisfying, less sweet, less greasy, and less guilt-inducing. Something I’d be happy to let my daughter eat on a weekend morning.
And I did. Hop on over to Liz’s blog to read about the two baked donut recipes I tried and what me and my small resident donut-taster thought of them.
