Banana Fritters with Spiced Glaze

I like to go all out on Saturday mornings. It's really the only day of the week I can do breakfast up right with all the fixins' since Monday thru Friday mornings are a mad dash of bodies, backpacks, missing socks, frantically gulped coffee and hastily applied mascara as I scramble to get my kids… Continue reading Banana Fritters with Spiced Glaze

Ridiculously Easy Homemade Doughnuts

Or, donuts...if you prefer it that way. Whichever way you like, these are amazingly good. They quite possibly belong atop my ease/deliciousness chart.

I found this recipe from pastry chef Amy Foster of Tallula, and decided it would perfectly complement the fluffy doughnuts. I added vanilla bean innards to mine, which gives it the beautiful specks of black. I took the remaining… Continue reading Vanilla Dipping Sauce

Applesauce Drop Doughnuts

I made these tonight for our annual family trick-or-treating extravaganza. They were crispy on the outside and warm and soft on the inside. They were awesome! Next time, I'll make some kind of dipping sauce (raspberry maybe, or possibly a vanilla bean custard) and try rolling them in powdered sugar. I think that would make… Continue reading Applesauce Drop Doughnuts
