Gingerbread Donuts

Gingerbread Donuts recipe pictures I made a huge mistake when I made this recipe. I never should have done it. I halved the recipe. (The recipe below is the full version) What a mistake. What was I thinking?  I should have doubled it! These donuts were terrific. We usually always have cinnamon rolls for breakfast on Christmas Day but we might need to make an exception this year. Cinnamon rolls and gingerbread donuts sounds like a much better idea to me!

We decorate gingerbread houses every year with my family but it was only last year I think, that I actually ate anything gingerbread flavored. I have always been a chocolate girl. So, there are many things that I’ve never bothered to try. Unfortunately for me, gingerbread was one of them. Kelly made gingerbread cookies for Christmas last year and I was shocked how much I liked them. Even though I could eat them all year round they really taste like Christmas to me! Now that I know how much I like gingerbread I have made my own gingerbread cookies, gingerbread cupcakes and now gingerbread donuts! These are the best donuts I have ever made! Plus, it gives me the opportunity to use my mini donut pan. Super adorable, and they taste great!

Dip the donuts in the glaze. It is best to keep the glaze on low heat so it does not harden.

    I love the sweet, sharp, a tinge of spicy-hot and mild fruity flavor of ginger in these donuts. I can smell the kitchen and its Christmas-y aroma…Happy Holidays!

    OMG, you have no idea how excited I am for this. I am doing a mini donut project (although been too swamped by finals to post my latest creations) and am obsessing over gingerbread right now. I am so making these tomorrow. Thanks!
