These New Orleans-Style Beignets Will Transport You Straight to the French QuartRecipes
Biting into a beignet is like biting into a buttery, fluffy pillow. When fried in hot oil, the slightly savory dough yields bite-size nuggets with perfectly crisp exteriors and tender interiors that beg for a dusting of powdered sugar (did you know you can make your own?) and a cup of freshly brewed hot coffee. New Orleans-style beignets are probably the most well-known beignets in the United States, and they’re surprisingly easy to make at home.

Recipe: D.I.Y. Lemon FillingRecipes
When I think about doughnuts, I often think of them oozing with tart, almost transparent lemon filling. A good yeast doughnut with goopy lemon filling and a thick dusting of powdered sugar is a favorite treat, indulged on very rare occasions. That lemon filling, so exclusive in my experience to doughnuts and commercial bakery products, is actually quite easy to make at home. This lemon filling uses cornstarch and gelatin to create its thick texture, and egg yolks for body and color.

Recipe: KrofiRecipes
Here’s a special recipe from my mother for Mother’s Day. These dense, fried doughnut-like rolls are a traditional recipe from Slovenia, the small Eastern European country where my most of our family is from. Krofi (kro-fuh) are brought out for special occasions – Easter, Christmas, bringing significant others home for the first time… We would always beg for them as special treats.

Recipe: Spiced Doughnuts With Dark Chocolate Glaze & Candied BaconRecipes
I have a small passion for spiced doughnuts. Sure they’re great from local bakeries, but when you’re frying them at home, they are one of the most forgiving doughnuts you can make. Why? Because of their color.A few months back I scored a great deal on some unsweetened chocolate. Remember these sea salt and lime brownies I made with it? I still had some floating around in my pantry that needed to be used, so what better to make than a doughnut?

Recipe: Sour Cream & Onion DoughnutsRecipes
While I love the idea of a little hand-held, deep-fried ringlet of sweetness, most doughnuts make my teeth hurt and coat the roof of my mouth with a fatty film, so I avoid them, and most other overly sweet desserts. But I do like a challenge, so lately I have been playing around in the kitchen with the idea of a savory take on sweets. This week my inspiration came as I eyed a bag of sour cream and onion potato chips at the corner deli, displayed next to a box of powder sugar doughnuts.

Recipe: Chocolate-Glazed Baked Doughnuts with SprinklesRecipes
I purchased a doughnut pan a few years back for a recipe-testing project I was working on, but after two or three uses, it got squirreled away in my laundry room, along with plenty of other unitaskers left quietly to die. I decided recently to brush off the pan and give it another go, and I am so glad I did.

Recipe: Gluten-Free Baked Vanilla Spice Sprinkle DoughnutsRecipes
Since going gluten-free, doughnuts are one of the things I miss most during the holidays. Each year, on December 26, my grandfather would wake up before everyone else and make his way to the local doughnut store. He’d bring back a bakers’ dozen of every kind of sugary treat. As each of us awoke, sleepy-eyed, stepping over boxes and leftover ribbon, we would reach into the box for something sweet and find our way to a cup of coffee or tea.

Oven-Baked Doughnuts at Home: Doughnut PansSkills
No one needs a doughnut pan the same way that no one needs doughnuts in the first place. But do I want one? After seeing those Apple Cider Doughnuts that Leela baked up earlier this month, you bet I do!The advantages of a doughnut pan are clear. Baking them in a pan is infinitely easier and less messy than deep-frying. Baking instead of deep-frying is also healthier, though the amount of butter and sugar that still goes into these recipes hardly qualifies them as a healthy food (sadly!).

These Baked Lemon-Raspberry Donuts Taste as Good as They LookRecipes
I know, I know. I’m asking you to turn on your oven in the middle of August — but trust me, it’s for a good reason. These lemon donuts are baked, covered in a sweet raspberry glaze, and topped with crushed pistachios. The hardest part about making them is convincing yourself not to eat them all in one sitting. I love how the lemon juice is incorporated into the batter of these donuts, along with the standard flour, butter, milk, sugar and eggs.
