cinnamon + nutmeg donuts (gf)



One of the most exciting purchases I've made in a while was this donut baking mold. But man was it hard to find. Most people gave me puzzled looks when asked if they sold them - clearly not on top of the donut trend. I was thinking about making holiday-themed donuts of some sort but I knew my first try at these wouldn't be perfect and so I went with a traditional cinnamon and nutmeg recipe made from almond flour. I'll admit mine didn't turn out the prettiest of donuts - each batch turned out differently than the next, so cohesively golden they are not. But they make the best breakfast. I think I'm gonna have to try gingerbread donuts next.
