Miss in the Kitchen #pineapple #donuts

So with all of the fabulous food blogs across the internets, it is impossible not to be inspired.  Lately my inspiration has been coming from the lovely Karly of Buns in My Oven.  She is the queen of the baked donut with a ton of delicious donut recipes like  Cinnamon Roll Donuts, Glazed Chocolate Donuts,  and don’t miss the Blueberry Glazed Donuts!  It has left me with no option but to order a donut pan and another pair of stretchy pants!

I wanted to make a fall inspired donut but I had used up all of my pumpkin in a pumpkin pie on Saturday.  Digging through the pantry I found some crushed pineapple and thought I’d make Pineapple Donuts.

My husband came through the kitchen while I was drizzling on the white chocolate glaze.  He asked what I was doing and then proclaimed that I was a criminal! I’m not even denying it.

We are all going to need stretchy pants.  Baked donuts are way too easy and out of this world delicious!!  I foresee many more donut recipes in our future!

I get huge donut cravings and just the other day I was wishing for a donut delivery truck.  Now isn’t that the best idea ever?  Forget pizza delivery, bring me the donuts!  Great business idea for all of you entrepreneurs out there!  I would be the number one customer for sure.
