Ok, so first let’s find out why there are two National Donut Days... Thanks Mental Floss.

Now that we’ve figured out that mystery, it’s onto the free donuts….

Pumpkin Baked Donuts!

Screen Shot 2017-10-08 at 7.09.21 PM.png

We love donuts. BUT, we don’t love that they are fried and dipped in sugary frosting (ok, some of us do… the kids).

After hearing hubs and Henry complain about neeeeeeding donuts, I rummaged through the cupboard and came up with:

Similar to my 3 ingredient chocolate cake, I set in motion to make some tasty donuts.

I grease my silicone baking dishes. I use a little butter.

All you do is mix the cake mix with the pumpkin and add spices to taste (usually 1t. cinnamon and a few dashes of ginger and nutmeg).

Pour into the donut “holes” (about 1/2 full) and bake per the mix directions for cupcakes.

Most cake mixes make 12 donuts. I let the donuts sit in the pan until they are cool, them take them out and do batch #2.

If you NEED glaze, mix:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar (confectioners sugar)
  • 1 T. soft butter
  • 1t. vanilla (you could use maple extract if you wanted to make it UBER FALL)
  • 1T. milk

Whisk all together and drizzle over the donuts.

This recipe is easy peezy pumpkin squeezy! It’s totally kid approved as well, which is why there are no after photos.It goes great with a PSL or other fall themed coffee beverage,

 

National Coffee Day, 9/29/16

Thursday is National Coffee Day, and while the free coffee doesn’t flow freely here in San Diego, I was able to find a few deals we can take advantage of!

Krispy Kreme- Free Coffee and a Donut. Details on their Facebook Page.

Dunkin Donuts- Not free, but 66¢ Medium-sized Hot Coffee all day. Details on their Facebook Page. 

Yeah, that’s pretty much it. Starbucks and Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf aren’t doing any in-store freebies or deals.  There are other places back east, like WaWa and Pilot Flying J have free coffee offers, but they are no where near me.

screen-shot-2016-09-25-at-7-50-43-pmOh, and not this week, but October 3-9, 7-Eleven is giving away free coffee when you present their app on your phone!

Don’t you know I’ll be there every day that week!!
