Cole loves it when make homemade donuts. In fact, I would venture so far as to say that homemade donuts are probably his favourite baked goodie for me to whip up.

For whatever reason Cole will never admit to me that he has one favourite treat – because as he says “everything you make is delicious” – but I know his secrets.

So when he came down to the kitchen this past Sunday morning to find these homemade Raspberry Jam filled Vanilla Sugar Donuts sitting on the kitchen counter – let’s just say I wasn’t surprised when his eyes lit up like a child’s on Christmas Day.

Happy Wednesday friendlies <3 < 3

So I’m thinking that today is a good day for a donut … are we in agreement on this subject?

If I’m being totally honest here, I have to admit that I think pretty much every day is a good day for a donut. However, I suppose if we must try to be at least a little bit “healthy” in our daily lives, I guess it’s only fair that we try to keep our weekly donut consumption to a somewhat reasonable level… like once… err maybe two…. okay three times a week max.

Sure. Let’s go with that…

Happy Monday everybody!!!

Now I know what you might be thinking… “there is no such thing as a happy Monday morning…” and believe me, there are definitely Monday mornings when I would not be able to argue with that statement. However, this particular Monday morning was pretty much the most fantastic Monday morning of all time. How is that possible you ask? Well all of the credit for this spectacular Monday morning is due to these chocolatey, boozy, moist, fluffy little donuts from Irish heaven.

That’s right – this is the kind of amazingness that happens when St. Patrick’s day and donuts collide! Yup… I started this St. Patrick’s Day Monday morning off right with these little bites of heaven, (despite the fact that they are laced with stout and baileys Irish cream,)… I’m sorry is it inappropriate to have beer and liqueur for breakfast??? Well, we will just ignore the inappropriateness of this situation for the time being  it was possibly one of the best decisions I have ever made, ;P.

Baked Chocolate Sour Cream Donuts with Vanilla & Chocolate Glaze

Chocolate Sour Cream Glazed Donuts… Honestly, need I say more? I hardly think you need me to, but I can certainly elaborate on what inspired me to bake up a batch of these chocolate beauties this week.

So, last Friday was National Donut Day… did you know about this!? Somehow I did not know this and I remained completely unaware until the day was nearly over. In short, I effectively missed a golden opportunity to bake (& eat) a whole bunch of donuts for the sake of National Donut Day! My question is, why is this day not displayed in bold, capitalized letters on every single calendar that gets distributed & sold in Canada? Is it really too much to ask to have anything and everything that has to do with food be displayed this way? I mean come on it was National Donut Day!
