Sweet, Warm Doughnuts

Recipe ideas for Saturday morning doughnuts and Hanukkah treats
Article Image

We all know the pleasure that is a box of fresh doughnuts, but save that trip to the bakery―doughnuts are easy to make at home. We’re sharing our favorite doughnut recipes from Saturday morning doughnuts to dessert doughnuts to sweet, dusted beignets and crisp, tender, perfect-for-Hanukkah fritters.

  • Recipe

    Pear Fritters with Lemon & Ginger

    Pear, lemon, and ginger are a match made in heaven. These crisp-yet-tender fritters would make an excellent dessert at Hanukkah.
  • Recipe

    Glazed Vanilla Bean Doughnuts

    Shauna Sever’s doughnuts have “Saturday morning” written all over them. You can even start them Friday night and let the dough rise overnight.
  • Recipe

    Buttermilk Beignets

    You can recreate the pleasure that is a bag of beignets from Café Du Monde in New Orleans in your own kitchen. Just don’t skimp on the confectioner’s sugar and have a pot of coffee ready to go.
  • Recipe

    Ricotta Fritters with Maple Syrup

    What to do with leftover ricotta? Deep-fry it, transforming it into a shortcut dessert. The batter is a cinch and the fritters cook in minutes. If you’re not a fan of maple syrup, dip they’re lovely dipped in honey.
  • Recipe

    Chocolate-Filled Beignets

    Truly a dessert doughnut, these beignets are demure outside with a rich surprise inside. A marked contrast between the light, crisp dough and the rich, creamy chocolate is key to the appeal of these pastries.
  • Recipe

    Apple Fritters

    A light egg-white batter makes these sweet-tart fritters crisp and golden. The batter works equally well with plums and pears, so you can make these fair-food favorites in summer and well into fall and winter.
  • Recipe

    Apple Cider Doughnuts

    An autumn tradition, these doughnuts are a sweet reminder of childhood and the recipe is relatively simple, so save yourself a trip to the farm and take a stab at a homemade version full of apple flavor.
  • Recipe

    Jelly-Filled Doughnuts

    We won’t pretend doughnuts are good for you (that’s not the point, right?), but this recipe does use a leaner, less sugary dough than your typical American jelly doughnut. They’re the perfect way to show off your homemade jam.
