10 Homemade Doughnut Recipes

10 delicious doughnut recipes

When we moved back to the South from Minnesota last summer one of my highest summer priorities was to take our two kids to Krispy Kreme. They watched doughnuts being produced on a large scale and they were fascinated (I have succeeded in making them Krispy Kreme loyalists!)

Sometimes (more often than not!) homemade is simply better. Homemade is affordable, you can tweak the flavors, and if you are lucky there are leftovers! A few of these recipes use prepackaged dough and a few are more advanced. Take your pick: they are all delicious!  

1. Meyer Lemon Doughnuts

Filled with meyer lemon curd, fried, and topped with sugar. These look heavenly.

2. Doughnut Waffles with Maple Glaze

This is really a cross between a doughnut and waffle, and I love the concept! The maple glaze ingredients sound just about perfect.
