    Oh man, I’m glad I could be inspirational for your cereal-free week! (Well, I guess it was more Roommate Tina!) These turned out great, I love the chocolate-dipped dessert one.

    Eventually, I hope to have time to try the recipe myself,haha.

    AHHH!! Omfg, I HAVE to make these over Spring Break! Those look absolutely amazing! We didn’t really get to eat many donuts, but the Tim Holes from Tim Horton’s were always purched en route to Canada. Also, my mom used to let us get a donut when we went grocery shopping at Meijer, and I used to get the DELICIOUS chocolate-glazed, custard-filled eclair. Oh I didn’t realize it, but I kinda miss that!

    Oh my goodness those look so good! I really like dense donuts, rather than the airy Krispy Cremes, and these look like they would be a good substitute. I haven’t had a donut in I don’t know how long, b/c I feel bad after I eat them. THIS is so awesome, I can’t wait to try it!

    I have seen baked donuts on a few blogs and always want to make them. I think you have me convinced!! The chocolate one looks really yummy.

    I can’t tell you the last time I had a donut. I tried to scope out some munchkins as an airport DD over the summer, but no luck. I’m going to have to say munchkins were my favorite, but I haven’t had one in 15 years!

    Oooooo, I’m with you on the Krispy Kremes…I love Dunkin Donuts too. LOL

    Once a year when we go on vacation we go to DD or KK every morning for a week…it’s wonderful! In theory it sounds totally gross, but it’s our once-a-year indulgence.

    mmmm, yum. even better than my guess! yet another recipe for me to bookmark ๐Ÿ™‚

    i looooove iced blueberry donuts — dunkin used to have them but i they seem to be few and far between these days. favorite #2 is a strawberry iced donut with rainbow sprinkles … probably because i walk by a cart full of them on the street every morning and then spend the rest of the day daydreaming about them!

    Those doughnuts look so yummy; I think I am going to have to make some this weekend!

    I went to school at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC (I.e., the home of Krispy Kreme). There are a TON of stores there and I swear they always have on the “Hot Now” sign. Good thing I didn’t have the same rule as your Dad!

    I’m a Boston girl, so my favorite has always been Dunkin Donuts’ powdered! I havent had one in YEARS tho, not even as a treat… because while I enjoy them at the time, I just find them so unsatisfying. But I want to make yours! those look GOOD!

    we don’t have KK up here anymore ๐Ÿ™ and when i mean up here, we still had to drive 2+ hours to get them

    i schedule my vacations around KK

    there is a small little bakery about 20 minutes from our house who makes good donuts. i have a recipe for pumpkin ones that are tasty.

    oh man, those look amazing!

    I would have to have one of the choc/butterscotch ones for breakfast, too ๐Ÿ™‚

    There’s this local place here, Carol Lee, that makes the BEST donuts. Ever. My favorites are the chocolate cake, toasted coconut, and maple iced. Yum!

    The donuts look great! I have seen them around and will have to try them. You should be completely happy with a 10 min mile pace! It isnt THAT slow…but I am partial. ๐Ÿ˜‰ hey – it’s all about perspective!

    I love raspberry filled donuts from Krispy Kreme but never get them. They are so good!

    Those homemade donuts looks awesome.

    My favorite is the maple kind, but I’m not picky. I lov donuts and I think I eat maybe…2 a year? I like the local donut shop kind better than krispy Kreme…although I haven’t had a KK donut in years, so I don’t really remember what it tastes like.

    Anyone out there watch 30 Rock? “You ever stuck a donut in the microwave?” -Liz Lemon aka my TV character clone (sad as that is to admit!)

    Wow.. I haven’t had a donut in FOREVER and those look FANTASTIC. I may have to try that recipe out soooon!

    Hmm.. I never had the pleasure of have a hot krispy kreme donut ๐Ÿ™ I used to love the strawberry frosted donuts w/ sprinkles from dunkin donuts!

    I started my own blog finally: http://dailydulcie.wordpress.com/

    That’s awesome! I am glad you’re enjoying the Lemon Curd too.

    I actually don’t love donuts. Even when I was little I would pick a bagel or muffin, but there is a good place near my parents’ house that makes them fresh. They also make donut cakes, which are wonderous!

    Awesome, I will have to make some donuts for the girls! My mom used to get a box from Dunkin Donuts and then cut a few up into about eight pieces and she’d give us fondue forks and we’d sample the different flavors. I guess my mom could be really cool sometimes.

    Tim Hortons doughnuts up in here Canada used to be the best — they’ve since gone cardboardish. I think the best place for doughnuts now is a grocery store near my parent’s place. They’re always SO FRESH and have the best apple fritters!!

    I printed out that recipe a few days ago and now I have to make them this weekend!!

    My favorite donut as a little girl was jelly from Dunkin Donuts. LOVED them. I also liked the honey dipped (aka glazed, we called them honey dipped) and glazed chocolate cake. I only ate the glazed part of the chocolate though.

    I’ve never had krispy kreme. They opened a few up here but they didn’t last too long. We are dunkin’ people.

    Ok see my comment above? Well I just had a donut (well 1/2 of one) last week and someone just dropped off FOUR DOZEN donuts to thank my department and a few others for our hard work this week.

    It’s going to be a long day, ladies and gents.

    My GOODNESS that looks AMAZING!!! Baked donuts and lemon curd sound so incredible right now!!!

    I’ve only had a hot Krispy Kreme like twice…a couple locations came to the Boston area a few years ago but they didnt last…Dunkin Donuts owns New England in the donut front haha! I do miss those hot ones!!!

    Great breakfast it looks so fantastic!
    I don’t like Krispy Kremes too sweet for my liking, I am however a fan of just plain donuts from dunking donuts or a simple glazed, I’m easy to please.

    I think we’re on the same wavelength here ๐Ÿ™‚ I had a VERY similar dinner last night… and had baked the donuts from Oh She Glows recipe page this morning ๐Ÿ™‚ I topped mine with dark chocolate PB, though ๐Ÿ™‚ I am LOVING the lemon curd! YUM

    I’m not a huge donut fan, but I do like long johns (the ones filled with mystery cream, not the white stuff). ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yum! Donuts! At my undergrad we have a tradition where sometime in the fall the president will cancel classes for the day and we all go eat Krispy Kreme donuts in the dining hall, and then dress up in crazy costumes and and climb a nearby mountain and do skits and sing songs to each other. Gotta love college ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mmmmm…donuts (said in a Homer voice).

    My fave donut is either a honey crueller or sour cream glazed. And ya know, I’ve only had a Krispy Cream once, and thought it was highly overrated. Give me good ol’ Canandian Tim Horton’s anyday!

    I so need to make those donuts.

    Ok, those donuts officially have me drooling. Is it time for lunch?! Seriously, I’m loving all of your combinations – the chocolate topping especially because it holds a place in my heart. My dad used to go to the grocery store every Sunday to pick up donuts for us. My favorite was either chocolate or chocolate with sprinkles!

    I also have a soft spot for Krispy Kreme. We were SO excited when they came to our town. And the Dunkin Donuts donut holes in chocolate cake – can you tell that I know my donuts?!

    Do these actually taste like donuts or is it just yummy baked dough? My favorite donut is the Boston Creme from Dunkin Donuts. Mmm, I want one now! ๐Ÿ˜‰
