National Donut Day!

Posted by in Baking

Tasty Kitchen Blog: National Donut Day!

I was all set to start searching for one or two tempting kabob recipes to show you, mostly because I’m still in the throes of a “summer is finally heeeere!” kick. But then I noticed my Instagram feed was taken over by pictures of donuts, interrupted here and there by snaps of luscious-looking coffee and cute kittens. So how is it National Donut Day and I find out only by accident? And okay, I learned that today is the day that honors “donut lassies” of the Salvation Army, as opposed to November’s National Doughnut Day, which celebrates the actual doughy treat. But if you want to celebrate today via increased consumption of said treat, I won’t argue with you. I’m just here to go with the flow. And for the donuts. (Is it donuts or doughnuts? Can someone please tell me?)

So get ready to be tempted, and if you see something you like, just click on the photos to get the printable recipe. It’s time to make some donuts!

Speaking of classics, here’s an oldie but absolute goodie. Muffins That Taste Like Donuts. Yes, yes, these aren’t technically donuts and these muffins are just crashing the party. But they sure taste like they should be! These were all the rage back in the day, and they’re still one of my favorites.

I think this is the first year I’ve read about national donut day too. Several local donut shops are giving away free donuts to celebrate. Happy Donut Day!
