While we were in the states, Emma G talked about how we often did “Donut Day.” Honestly, I can remember once, maybe twice, that we actually dubbed a day donut day. Apparently it was enough of an impression to stick in her mind.
She’s recently been talking about resurrecting “Donut Day.” The only problem? I have never once seen a donut shop in South Africa. Sure, you see donuts for sale in the grocery store at the bakery, but it just isn’t the same. Can I get an amen, my American friends?
So, what does any good mother do when her child is sweetly asking for something that doesn’t exist? Go to Pinterest, of course. There you’ll find thousands (exact count is unconfirmed, but it sure seemed like thousands) of donut recipes. I chose to go with a baked donut. I know, they’re filled with sugar which equals unhealthy, but I figure omitting the fried part was the least I could do. I also had to settle on using a muffin tin instead of a donut pan.
Who has one of those anyways?
Emma G kindly informed me that they weren’t “real” donuts because they weren’t the same shape. However, both my kids ate not one, but two of these babies. I do believe these cinnamon roll baked donuts will be making a comeback soon.
