In honor of my son's 11th birthday today, this month's recipe is from his favorite food group: donuts! Instead of making or buying a traditional birthday cake, I served these round beauties stacked high on a cake stand, complete with a simple glaze that made them sweet but not overly so. The glaze also acted a bit like glue and held the stack together nicely. I know it was his birthday, but I got a present, too, when his eyes got big and his face lit up when I showed him the final result. Note to self: Donut cake = serious mom points.

The recipe I used happens to be from King Arthur Flour and isn't intended to be an endorsement. I found this recipe easy to follow and these cake donuts are faster to make than those that require yeast. I made two batches, one vanilla and one chocolate. To make the chocolate donuts, I simply replaced 1/3 cup of the flour in the recipe with 1/3 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder, and it worked great.

I used a small/medium sized donut pan but with Valentine's Day right around the corner, consider making heart-shaped donuts or experiment with other fun shapes. Whoever you make them for, I'm sure their face will light up, too!

Until next month, 
Lisa
