The best part about this simple doughnut recipe is that you can pretty much make them the way you prefer. You can add lemon curd along with cream cheese whipped together inside the dough. You can add orange or lemon zest to the dough to give it a refreshing citrus flavor. You can try making the chocolate flavored ones by adding chocolate chips. Try adding cinnamon, coconut flakes, honey or a hint of almond extract for a nutty aftertaste. Make it very festive by adding pumpkin pie spice and a hint of pumpkin puree in the dough. You can even coat these doughnuts with almond flakes as a garnish. You may want to toast the almond flakes before you coat the doughnuts. For special occasions such as kids’ birthday parties, you can coat these doughnuts with rainbow sprinkles or dip them in marshmallow fluff and then coat with chocolate dipping to give it a S'mores twist. These ideas are great and fun and give it an edgy look. There are endless options for this recipe.
