National Donut Week Baking Ideas

by Owen Redford

One of the best ways to get creative with baking is by exploring the wonderful world of donuts! National Donut Week runs from the 11th to the 18th May so we thought it would be a great idea to put together some delicious donut bakes for you to try at home. Enjoy!

Chocolate Birthday Cake Doughnuts

The first donuts we have on our list are these colourful chocolate birthday cake donuts. They feature a chocolate base with extravagant purple, blue and pink icing to top it off. These look especially good with a candle in the top to help celebrate a special day. This recipe makes 12 donuts.

Why not top these with some of our Baking Time Club Spring Sugar Strands sprinkles?
