Let's call these donuts "don't-nuts"

Posted By on Tue, Oct 5, 2010 at 1:57 PM

Seems like donuts are all the rage on the blogosphere nowadays. After seeing a plethora of posts on apple cider donuts, caramel donuts, baked cinnamon donuts and more, I caved and purchased a donut pan to make baked donuts.

The pan arrived in the mail with a recipe for Spiced Donuts on the back of the packaging. I decided to give it a whirl figuring that if the recipe is featured on the product packaging, it's gotta be good, right?

Wrong.

These donuts are a big "don't."

They came out like donut-shaped muffins. Bread-like and slightly rubbery, they didn't even have a cinnamony spiced flavor. Perhaps if I had dunked them in melted butter and then rolled them in cinnamon sugar after baking like these donut muffins, they would have tasted better.

At least they looked attractive.

I won't post the recipe because I don't want to subject you to the temptation to make these, seeing how rainbow-colored and cute they are, you might not be able to resist.
