Best Donut Recipes

I’m no baker. While I love experimenting with dinner, when it comes to sweet desserts I usually stick to my comfy classics. Like my no fail fruit crumble (get the recipe HERE) and my moms best yellow cake (get the recipe HERE) and her easy chocolate cake (recipe found HERE) While I will hesitantly alter those recipes to come up with new treats (like this recipe for Smores Cupcakes and this one for Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Cookie Dough Frosting) I don’t really venture into territories unknown when it comes to baking. (my mind draws a blank when numbers are involved!) Since it’s Hanukkah and everyone wants to celebrate by biting into a freshly powdered jelly donut (what, that’s not on your to do list this holiday? Because it’s totally #2 on mine. Right after eat latkes!) I have decided to search the web for you and select my fav donut recipes! (and by favorite I don’t mean I have tested them out. They just all made my mouth water and I almost licked my screen) Enjoy this collection of best donut recipes and if you try any, leave a comment below letting me know if they taste as good as they look!
