Bakery treat for breakfast
“Fresh popcorn is near impossible to resist, second only to fresh doughnuts.”
― Shannon Wiersbitzky, “What Flowers Remember”
Have you ever wondered if it were possible to make doughnuts at home with a quick and easy recipe? If that were not a tall enough order, could they also be made in such a way where the resulting bakery treat was reasonably healthy? Of course, it goes without saying, the taste needs to be great.
I think the recipes below are a good balance. 2 things to note:
- Put a can of coconut milk in the fridge upside down. Once you have made the coconut whipped cream, you will keep a can in there at all times.
- It pays to get a doughnut pan. It is not really a specialty baking item anymore. I think even large grocery stores have them.
The goal of the recipes below, is to satisfy the need for comfort foods of our youth. That time when you could, and did, eat everything. I don’t want to deny my children that luxury. But, if I can switch in a healthier version, we all win. It becomes something we can share. And these are quicker and easier to make than muffins. Less ingredients.

But do check the bulk bins. There are many brands which package them, but here is a picture of what they look like.
If you try these recipes, let me know what you think. I’m curious to see if they bring a little surprise and joy into your kitchen.
