I promise I won't post donuts every week this month. But the fact is, I did make them twice more in the last week, one so my son home for the weekend could try my new obsession, and two, because I was just so curious about the different flavors.
First up were Maple Cinnamon Donuts, which were mighty fine, but didn't really taste much of maple. Considering that's a favorite flavor in our family, I really wanted them to. It helped to dip them in maple syrup rather than butter before also dipping in cinnamon-sugar.
Second were Pumpkin Donuts with Maple Syrup Frosting. The donuts were just the right mix of pumpkin and spice! Again, the maple flavor was understated, and the frosting way too runny. But definitely worth tinkering with another time.
For those of you who've had enough of my donut baking, feel free to flash back to last year when I shared my recipe for Italian Tomato and Sausage Soup, which also was enjoyed this weekend due to mom's special request. Love those recipes that have become family favorites over the years.
