As I’ve mentioned before, Forrest grew up making doughnuts on Christmas Eve with his family, and it’s a tradition we’ve continued on in our little family as well. Who doesn’t love delicious and sweet doughnuts? Whenever I make doughnuts, I typically make them using my Wilton Doughnut Pan, and I bake them, just because I try and tell myself it’s slightly healthier that way. However, I never turn down a good ol’ fried doughnut either.

We love making them together, and I think it’s a tradition everyone should. There are so many awesome ways to make a doughnut, with tons of different flavor combinations. In preparation for this year, I decided to find a bunch of different ideas for doughnuts. I was pretty surprised at some of the ideas people came up with, but as I was making this, I found myself totally drooling. If I wasn’t so sore from a Pump exercise class I did a few days ago, I would definitely be in the kitchen whipping up a batch of one of these recipes.

So, if you are looking for some unique doughnut recipes, you’ve definitely come to the right place. I don’t know which one I’ll try first, but I assure you, I will be making some of these soon!
