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!”
