It’s national doughnut weekend! Something I think I inherited from my dad (when I was little he used to buy classic cake doughnuts as a treat) is a suppressed love of doughnuts. Naturally, the best doughnuts are those made fresh although I remember enjoying them from the freezer as well. I think that the best doughnuts I ever had (pictured above) were at a restaurant in Ottawa.
I’m not sure that you can make a truly healthy doughnut but if you’re just having one as an occasional treat (I’m thinking like once or twice a year when I say that) then it’s really not a big deal. If you want to try making a somewhat healthier version of a classic doughnut you might want to give this Baked Doughnut Recipe a try.
