10 recipes to celebrate National Donut Day!

Did you know that #NationalDonutDay was established in 1938 to celebrate the brave women of the Salvation Army who served up fried treats to soldiers during World War I? The holiday is celebrated the first Friday of June each year so today I'm sharing our top 10 most popular donut recipes.

S'mores Donuts

  We're s'mores obsessed around here so why not enjoy our favorite treat in donut form? I love any excuse to break out the kitchen torch!

These baked beauties are perfect for when you're craving chocolate! Always a big hit with kids, especially when you add fun sprinkles!

Apple Cider Donuts

Apple Cider Donuts are a big deal in New England and these are the best I've ever eaten!

Lemon Funfetti Baked Donuts

Lovely lemon flavor with festive sprinkles both in the batter and on top! 

Baked Vanilla Donuts with Mocha Glaze

The coffee glaze on these totally puts them over the top!  

Jalapeno Cornbread Donuts

Who says donuts have to be sweet? These are great perfect with a bowl of chili or soup.

  Who says that you can only have gingerbread around the holidays?  Not me, I love it year round!

Pineapple Upside Down Donuts

The classic cake in donut form!  They're great in full size or in mini! You can also add chopped cherries and nuts if you like.

Orange Glazed Blueberry Donuts

Cannot wait for our berry patch to start producing so I can make a batch of these.  Orange and blueberry go so well together but they're great with lemon too! 

Old Fashioned Doughnuts

If I'm going to fry it really has to be worth it.  We like these tossed with cinnamon sugar or dipped in chocolate glaze and topped with sprinkles.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Strawberry Pizzelles

Pizzelles are one of my favorite childhood cookies and I'm constantly looking for ways to put a new spin on them.  Since one of my favorite summer fruits is strawberries, I swapped out the vanilla in the original recipe with strawberry extract.  This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SummerDessertWeek !  I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own. I also added some red food coloring to give it a pink hue, but you can skip that if you like.  I use a cookie scoop to portion out the batter, it keeps all the pizzelles the same size, plus it's quicker than using two spoons.   They're delicious as is but you can take them over the top by fashioning them into a cylinder which we like to call fauxnoli.  You can pipe them full of whipped cream or buttercream.  If you want to prepare everything in advance, store the pizzelle in an airtight container, and the filling in a pastry or zip top bag in the f
