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.

  1. I have never had a cake donut with the singular flavor of maple, just ones with maple frosting. I am not sure with all the tasty recipes I have seen why I have not broke down to get a donut pan.
    Your recipe with the flour mix and the tasty flavor does sound well worth trying. Yum!

  2. I love maple stuff. And as much as I wish I could say I didn't, I love donuts. And it is seriously the ONLY sweet, sugary thing I can get my kids to eat so I am always buying them and then feel guilty for feeding them junk. If its baked it's gotta be at least a little bit better for them!! Thanks for the idea! 🙂
