Maple Glazed Donuts

Baked Spiced Donuts dunked in an amazing Maple Glaze. One of my very favorite donuts to date!

Maple Glazed Donuts

Donuts are a must today. They’re the only thing distracting me from what’s happening outside. Given the fact that spring suddenly decided to take a break and let winter strike again with a ridiculous amount of snow, I think we all deserve a donut break.

Even if you’re blessed enough to live in a place where spring has truly sprung, you might want to think about giving these donuts a go. It’s Monday and all of us can use some sweet encouragement to make it a good week ahead.

This is my first actual fall post now that autumn has officially arrived and things are definitely beginning to look like it. The leaves are changing color and I cannot wait to see fall in all its bounty. Though this season tends to be rather short in MN, it sure makes up for it in radiance and breathtaking beauty. Definitely one of the reasons why living here is so worth it.

Also, I feel much more comfortable talking and thinking about all things cozy and warm when we’re in the season. It just feels right.

They’re healthified, extremely scrumptious & satisfying and an absolute must-make. [Read more…]
