Apple Cider Fritters

Apple Cider Fritters | From SugarHero.com

Bless me, readers, for I have sinned. It has been only four days since my last doughnut post, and I have again deep-fried dough for this blog. Forgive me. Forgive me for making these apple cider fritters, so tender on the inside, crisp on the outside, dripping with apple cider glaze and bursting with caramelized…

You’ve probably had doughnuts and coffee before, but I’ll bet you’ve never had them quite like this!

Doughnut Hole Monster Eyeballs

Don’t look at me like that. Haven’t you ever seen eyeball-shaped doughnut holes arrayed on a fur pelt before? Live a little, darlings.

Usually the listings are pretty tame and repetitive, but the most perplexing item popped up in one of my alert emails yesterday. “Doughnut Hot Chocolate.” Picture me cocking my head…

Mini Chocolate Doughnuts

I hope this doesn’t make you uncomfortable, but I have to share. In January, we went to New York City, and I had a spiritual experience. I went here, and my life was changed forever: Prior to my trip to the Doughnut Plant, I was lukewarm on the question of doughnuts. Sure, I’d been known…
