RASPBERRY BAKED DOUGHNUTS
What’s a weekend breakfast without something tasty straight from the oven?
On weekends, I like to make something a little more interesting for breakfast than cereal or frozen waffles. During the week, little man shakes me awake at 7 am and by the time I can actually crawl out of bed, it’s 7:20. At that point, I have 40 minutes to get him ready for school, which involves making his breakfast, packing his lunch, getting him dressed and getting myself looking somewhat decent enough to go out in public without scaring anyone.
So breakfast usually consists of cereal, frozen waffles (that are actually homemade but I make them on the weekend and freeze them), or old fashioned oatmeal if I managed to get out of bed early enough. Little booger does not eat eggs for anything.
That’s why weekend mornings are meant for some fun breakfast dishes. Whether those are creative pancakes, muffins, pastries, or donuts. Yes, donuts! Donuts are always a nice breakfast treat. It’s like an excuse to have dessert for breakfast. And these White Chocolate Covered Baked Raspberry Donuts are a perfect excuse. They are made with fresh, easy raspberry sauce and dipped in white chocolate.
