Plated + Served: DIY Doughnuts and Jelly-Filled Doughnut Holes


Tomorrow is National Doughnut Day, so celebrate this momentous occasion with these easy DIY Doughnuts with Jelly-Filled Doughnut Holes.

(Someday I’d like to figure out just who it is that gets to declare what is or isn’t worthy of a “national day”—I want that job.)

Some of you will shudder when you see that the doughnuts are deep-fried. Get over it. National Doughnut Day only comes once a year… celebrate in style.

As Mama always says, “Eat today… exercise tomorrow!”

    I totally missed Doughnut Day last Saturday! However, your jelly doughnuts look really scrumptious! I am with you though, I’d like to have that job too :). Thanks for stopping by My Favorite Posts SHOW OFF Weekend Blog party!

    I have not attempted homemade donuts yet. This is something on my to-do list. These look really tasty! I love the pic of the filling the donut holes. Keeping this one in mind, for sure.
