Best-Ever Cake Doughnuts

Best-Ever Cake Doughnuts

They say that the best defense is a good offense.

To me, this means being prepared for anything.  Like knowing that you can use one single recipe to make something for basically any situation. 

Sunday brunch at your place?  Doughnuts.

Baby shower?  Mini cupcakes. 

Birthday party?  Frosted cake.

Oh, wait, someone’s on a diet?  What, they’re giving up sugar?  No gluten? 

Okay, sure!  Good thing THIS recipe doesn’t need those kinds of things to be absolutely bomb.

So now you can be that person that always seems to have something delicious and ready to go on every occasion.  Trust me, this makes you very popular!

The reason?  For one, there is more fiber in these doughnuts.  Made with whole wheat flour and fruit, they’ll keep you satisfied longer.

12 Must-Try Recipes for Spring Baking

Don’t forget to check out this week’s most excellent giveaway – Quest Nutrition products galore!

When you think of spring, what comes to mind?  Flowers?  Bunnies?  (Allergies?)  I think of flavors.  Like, fresh, fruity, zesty flavors. 

Yes, I know.  My world kinda revolves around food.  I’m okay with that.

Anyway, there really isn’t just one particular flavor that comes to mind – it’s like a whole basket of flavors.  An Easter-basket of flavors – if Easter baskets were full of actual fruit and healthier things that the jelly beans try to taste like.
