Donuts, Doughnuts, they all Taste Good!

One of my family's favorite indulgences is donuts.  We live in the land of Krispy Kreme, but Dunkin Donuts has a strong following here in NC, at least in my house.  I think that's due to ALL the Krispy Kreme I had as a child, it's easy to overdose when the 'Hot & Fresh Now' sign beckons!  Plus, Dunkin Donuts makes great coffee..................

Because of our love of donuts, I picked up a donut baking pan, because if they're baked instead of fried, they're not as bad for you (isn't that right?).  This is the one I found:

We happened to have some canned pineapple rings and they inspired me to utilize their donutty shape to make our first batch of donuts that resembled pineapple upside down cake.  Because I'm somewhat of a health nut when it comes to food, I knew we would be eating these for dessert instead of breakfast, so I did a recipe search and found this one from Kitchen Confidante.  It fit the bill! 

And this is how mine turned out--beautiful, perfect portions of pineapple upside down cake.  They're easily hand-held, but I ate mine with a fork.  Next time, I'll use crushed pineapple to make them a bit easier to bite, but boy were these delicious!  My girls went crazy for them!  And, on a dare from a fellow foodie friend, I couldn't resist attempting one more donut.

Yes, my friends, that is a shredded bison donut.  Remember my bison post?  I had some leftover and accepted the challenge.  My husband happily ate it, and I'm now inspired to do a shredded barbecue cornbread donut.  How fun would that be for a potluck?  Yes, I'm a little wacky.

Oh, and if you're wondering whether or not to use DOUGHNUT or DONUT, read about it here.  I haven't committed to either, but really don't think it matters.

Have a wonderful week!
