We went out to our favorite local donut stores to support some great community bakers, and these recipes are sitting at the top of our queue to continue the celebration this weekend. So, without further delay…here are some of our favorite donuts:

Black and White Glazed Donuts from Will Cook For Smiles: Inspired by the ever-so-delicious black and white cookies. Donuts that are half chocolate and half vanilla topped with chocolate glaze and vanilla glaze. Amazing!!

Very Vanilla Chocolate Covered Donuts from Chase that I Love: Gluten-free flour mix makes these baked donuts a treat everyone can enjoy. Rodelle Vanilla Bean Paste adds a super-dose of vanilla flavor!

Vanilla Cream Filled Donuts from Cookie Dough And Oven Mitt: A deliciously fried and filled vanilla-flavored donut. Miranda definitely knows what she’s doing by putting vanilla in the dough and the filling. 2 Mitts Up!

Festive Baked Vanilla Donuts from Wonky Wonderful: It’s never too early in the morning for sprinkles and Wonky Wonderful has made a delicious donut base for some festive sprinkles on these delightful donuts!!

Double Chocolate Glazed Donuts from Broma Bakery: A great way to get a dose of healthy chocolate first thing in the morning. Enough said!

Chocolate Malt and French Fry Donuts from Culinary Concoctions by Peabody: When you are a sweet and salty fan, there’s really only one way to go…straight to these donuts!
