Celebrate National Donut Day

June 5, 2015

Donuts are one of my best kept secrets. When we are all having a lazy family day (which is rare) I start my cooking early and make a batch of these heavenly donuts. I've had some pretty tasty donuts from all over the country, but there is something extra special about a simple warm, glazed donut. Check out my recipe and then take a look at some cool ideas to celebrate This most awesome of food holidays: National Donut Day.
