I may have conquered my fear of the oven in my apartment in NYC, but the oven is absolutely terrible. It takes forever to heat up and it’s so small that a regular size cookie tray doesn’t fit. So I can use it, yes, but it’s so much of a hassle that I just don’t.
Which is why I’m extra excited to go home to Florida for an entire week for Thanksgiving. I’ve been going back through my Pinterest board to pull recipes that I want to try when I get a hold of my mom’s two convection ovens. (I feel like I say that I’m going to do this every time I go home and then I get lazy… but I’m really going to try. For real.)
I’m kind of obsessed with doughnuts; they’re totally my weakness. I love a good Dunkin’ Donuts and, of course, will splurge on a gourmet doughnut when I can get my hands on one. But these recipes that I pulled are all a bit different. And they all seem incredibly amazing.
Mini Gingerbread Doughnuts with White Chocolate Cinnamon Glaze // Mess Makes Food
Gingerbread? Amazing. White Chocolate? Count me in. Cinnamon Glaze? Mouth watering. All three together AND miniature sized? Pretty much the best thing I can think of. These would be festive little desserts for the holidays.
Pumpkin Doughnut Muffins // Martha Stewart
Leave it to Martha to combine two of the best breakfast items into one. I think we should make these for Thanksgiving day morning (pregaming dinner, duh)… perfect snack while watching the parade.
Puff Pastry Doughnuts // The Kitchy Kitchen
This is basically a cronut. (Remember when we stood in line for hours to get one?) So basically this is awesome. I have to admit, the glaze on top actually looks better than the real cronut. Must. Try.
Peanut Butter Cup Doughnuts with Sea Salt // Wit and Vinegar
Another one of my weaknesses are Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I think two weaknesses in one (topped with sea salt, no less) might be a little bit too aggressive for even this doughnut fiend. Yet… I’m always up for a good challenge.
Doughnut Fries // Oh Bite It
Oh. My. Goodness. Not only are these little guys easy to make (seriously, it’s basically fool proof), these are actually genius. I’ll take all the toppings, please.
What’s your favorite kind of doughnut? Which one of these recipes do you think I should try?
