SPRING DONUTS

Spread the love

Spring Donuts dipped in smooth White Chocolate glaze are lovely treat for anytime of the year. However, decorating them with pansies gives them the right look. Not to mention they are delicious and healthy.

We are having beautiful spring so far here in Ontario, Canada, like almost never before. Well at least not that I recall. Last couple of years was really cold until middle of May and even before that we never have warm March like we had this year. I was even able to buy my favorite Pansies that I love so much. As you can see I used them to decorate these yummy donuts to give them that spring look.

What else was also interesting was the time of Ester, which is usually about two weeks later. I read about the Easter calculation which is related to full Moon cycles and Equinox. It is quite simple, yet complicated and if you and if you are interested, you can find out more HERE.

Now you are probably wondering why am I writing about this. Well, I have to be honest about something! I made these Spring Donuts for Easter, but I am more than two weeks late posting the recipe. One of the reasons why I am so late is because I also stated making videos and I am learning video editing with Adobe Premier Pro.

Luckily my son in law shied me the basics, so I am progressing faster, than I though I would. Nevertheless, it is still a slow process and lots of work, therefore I hope you will take a look. I really hope you like these delicious and guilt free donuts and you will try the recipe. They are easy to make, as you can see on the video.

Thank you so much for visiting and if you have any questions or suggestion please do not hesitate to contact me. Have a wonderful week.

  • When ready, let them cool down for 10 minutes before removing from the mold.

  • Wait couple of minutes then transfer them into freezer for 5 minutes. Dip them again to attain a thicker layer.
