    Good morning! :wave3: And Happy Friday! :yess:

    Today is National Doughnut Day. DD is offering a free donut with a purchase of coffee.

    What is your favorite doughnut flavor? Do you like sprinkles or frosting? Where do you usually buy your doughnuts? Do you make doughnuts?

    When we go to DD (Dunkin), I like their sourdough glazed or sourdough powdered. I also like peanut butter filled. But really, I like pretty much all doughnuts.

    We make yeast doughnuts usually once a year, in the spring, for Fastnacht Day or Shrove Tuesday. My doughnuts, though, are made either the weekend before or the weekend after. I didn't get any made this year and Rick's mother is still asking me about doughnuts. She keeps saying "Doughnuts taste good any time!" and she's right. :yummy:

    How about you? Do you like doughnuts?

    My favorite is also the Boston Cream Donut. There is a donut place down the road from me but I don't remember the name of the place. They have the best donuts.

    I'm really picky about my donuts. I only like Apple Fritters and Crumb Cake Donuts, the ones with crumbs all over them.

    I grew up on DD donuts. I always get the glazed. I If I'm getting Munchkins, I'll eat whatever is in the box but for some reason I would never buy a whole donut of, say, jelly filled in it's own :dunno:

    I really like Apple cider donuts from a local grocery store but those are only available during the fall.

    I don't care for savory / trendy donuts but a local independent donut shop makes a really good maple bacon donut :yummy:

    Asking me if I like donuts is like asking me is the sky blue,

    Krispy Creme glazed are my fave, the jelly and strawberry frosted with sprinkled from Dunkin, and there is a local bakery, Anne's Pastries that makes the best peanut butter creme sticks (French Silk pie)

    I like donuts :D. My favorites are blueberry cake, Krispy Kreme lemon filled, Boston cream, and apple fritters/bear claws. But any donut is fine with me.

    There's a local bakery that makes "zebra donuts", with chocolate dough twisted with the plain dough. The bitterness of the chocolate dough goes great with the general sweetness. They're the best. Also very much in demand---if you don't order the day before, you're really taking your chances! They sell out very quickly.

    I don't eat donuts very often but when I have a craving my favorite is from a local candy shop. They use their homemade chocolate as a glaze for the donut. :yummy:

    My favorite is Boston Creme. We rarely buy doughnuts, but when we do, it's from an independent bakery, not a chain.

    Tim Hortons through and through. I have no idea where else to purchase donuts. TIM BITS ANYONE?! :yummy: :loveeyes:

    My top 3 are the honey glazed, chocolate, and those coconut sprinkle covered ones.

    We have little choice as to where we buy doughnuts, as the nearest independent is about 20 miles away. There is a place- Paula's- that has awesome ones, but you had better be wearing shoulder and elbow pads because of the crowds.

    I can't remember where I get my beloved crumb cake donuts. It's either Dunkin or Tim Hortons. You gotta get there early though, they sell out before noon!

    Where my cats are
    My kids are with my mom today and I was thinking about running out to Dunkin for a coffee. But honestly I don't know if I want to deal with lines of people wanting a free donut. :lol: (Besides; I had one yesterday because I was hangry while my Mom was at her OT appointment. :paperbag:)

    My current favorite is Boston Cream. But usually I go for either a jelly or a chocolate glazed. A local orchard makes the BEST EVER apple cider donuts. You can get them literally hot and fresh and it's heavenly. :cloud9:

    I have never made my own and I don't think I will. It's nice to just have one as a treat now and then. :agree:

    I rarely eat doughnuts anymore because of the calories, but the jelly- and cream-filled ones are my favorites. Love those doughnut holes, too.

    A fresh fried cake donut with chocolate frosting is my absolute favorite. Second would be a chocolate cake donut, glazed and covered in coconut.
