It's time to make the doughnuts!
One thing I love about being a mom is posting play dates for my son. But often times, play dates are mainly for the kids and us mothers are left trying to just make sure they are safe and having fun. Being the foodie that I am, I usually host weekly play dates. The difference? My play dates are focused on food that the children and mothers can both enjoy.
One of the kitchen play dates that I recently hosted centered around doughnuts! I made a variety of doughnuts including these Baked Buttermilk Doughnuts that the kids and moms had fun glazing, topping, and decorating! Have you had a doughnut today?...
These Baked Buttermilk Doughnuts were easy to make, not to mention healthy too! There's no need for deep frying and with the doughnut pan, they came out pretty good. The chocolate glaze is equally delicious... just ask our little friend Aedan!
