If you’re going to make any kind of donuts, it’s probably best to have a basic original donut recipe to start from. After that, the flavor variations are pretty endless. Today I’m sharing my old fashioned glazed donut recipe, but I’m planning on taking this recipe in all sorts of directions. Blueberry? For sure. Peanut butter? Why not? Some sort of citrus, like lemon or orange? I bet that would be yummy. But to start, we need a good basic recipe.
Helpful Tools for Making Donuts:
- 2 donut pans (I like these from USA pan)
- A cooling rack and half sheet pan (these are the ones I have)
- Mixing bowls
- Parchment paper for easier cleanup when glazing
All of the donut recipes I’m sharing over the next few weeks are easy to halve, so if for some reason you don’t want an entire dozen donuts at a time (or you only have one donut pan), feel free to make a half batch. They’re yummy though, so I bet they won’t last long!
