My dad tortured me the other day with baklava. Curse him, that stuff is just too good!
Every fall, my family made a point of making doughnuts. We cheated; bought the Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits; you know, those things you peel the paper off them and then smack them on the counter until they pop open. I guess you're supposed to use a spoon to open them, but violently hitting them on the counter is much more fun. Make a ring out them, dump them in the deep fryer, take them out, shake them in cinnamon sugar and viola! Autumn doughnuts.
I'm a sucker for deep fried things. I love that wonderful crispy-ness that you only get from dunking something in boiling 400 degree fat. It's about the worse thing ever for you, but... it tastes good! Never had it tasted better for me than when we went to a wedding in Georgia, where they were serving home-made dishes at the reception. Deep fried cheesy jalapenos? I'm not sure how much punch I had to go through to keep my sensitive mouth from catching fire, but those things were GOOD!

best doughnut I ever ate? Yeast raised, deep fried, maple glazed, bacon doughnut.
But right now, I can't get pizza doughnut out of my head. You could fry the pepperoni to crispy it up a bit first, or use finely chopped chorizo...goat cheese and mozza....basil & oregano...thinly chopped sundried tomatoes... you could serve them as dinner and dessert!

I have made beignets:
But try not to do so often. I refuse to look at any recipe, because then there is nothing stopping me from making this from what I already have in my kitchen. At least if I must get a beignet mix from the store, that's an additional chance to talk myself out of it.
I'm going to go now, and try to forget all about the idea of donuts filled with Gnutella.

Give me a homemade or a good bakery jelly any day over that mass produced crud!
Jelly/Nutella donut? Brilliant!

My first plan was actually to make that recipe, only with mini bundt pans since I don't have a donut pan, but none of my mini pans were to be found.

We seem to be making these for our Sunday breakfast every week:
Baked cake donuts
You have been warned. Though, being baked, they aren't anywhere near as bad for you, but taste awesome. So far I've done powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, maple glazed, and chocolate glazed. Also did a batch of chocolate donuts with chocolate glaze -- much recommended.
I feel I should add to this story -- a few days before Christmas, my husband and I were out shopping and passed by a display of bakeware. I commented how I wanted to get a donut pan to use with a recipe I'd found.
Christmas day comes and I go into the kitchen to start the oven for the ham, and my husband suggests I have a look in there first. So I did, and there is a wrapped gift -- a donut pan. Apparently Santa ordered it and had it sent overnight, just so he could wrap it and put it in the oven for me to find. :P
