i finally got a donut pan on thursday afternoon last week…

and i finally made donuts on thursday evening!

i put out a call on twitter for a good (easy) donut recipe to make first and kelly suggested that i check out sarah snacks. i’m glad i took kelly’s advice because as soon as i saw the recipe for these vegan strawberry donuts with chocolate glaze, i was sold.

the only change i made was to use regular butter instead of earth balance (thus making them non-vegan…) since i don’t have any earth balance!

i also made 6 regular sized donuts and 24 mini’s (and i still had leftover batter!).

and finally, we stored them in the refrigerator because the glaze never really hardened.

all i can say is, i can’t wait to make more donuts!

yesterday’s post definitely helped me put something things into order in my mind and get back on track and i did really well with my three goals for the week, too! i juiced, tracked my food, and didn’t watch any tv, which resulted in a crazy productive day! i don’t feel like i watch much television on a daily basis, but when it wasn’t an option last night, i definitely found myself working on things that i usually let slide until the weekend. that felt great and i’m excited to see what i can accomplish with a whole week off from evening television!

i woke up with a crampy stomachache. it’s still bothering me and it’s pretty painful, but i’m trying to push through it and get some work done!

So excited you got a donut pan! I got one for Christmas and absolutely love it! The possibilities are really endless – you can never have too many donuts. ;)

I do not know what a donut pan is, so you do not fry these donuts? I will have to look into this. Maybe you have a bad stomach from eating too many donuts??

here’s a link to a donut pan mom: http://www.overstock.com/Crafts-Sewing/Mini-Doughnut-12-cavity-Pan/5748448/product.html?cid=202290&kid=9553000357392&track=pspla&adtype=pla&kw={keyword}

it’s just like a muffin pan but in donut-form! so you bake the donuts instead of frying them!! i only made this one recipe so far, but there are TONS of baked donut recipes out there! they’re pretty much muffins, but just in a donut shape.

and i only ate ONE mini donut last night! i don’t think the stomachache is from the donuts. :(
