Celebrate National Donut Day with These 5 Scrumptious Recipes

June 6, 2014

A batch of freshly made donuts is guaranteed to wake you up in the morning.  There is something about the smell of dough frying in a dutch oven that will lure you out of bed like nothing else.  Donuts have come a long way in the last decade.  While we still love chocolate and glazed, there are so many more exciting and fun flavors to try like maple bacon, strawberry cheesecake, or green tea.  There are even donuts for the calorie conscious that are baked instead of fried.  Treat yourself on National Donut Day to one of these scrumptious recipes.
