Eggnog Donuts with Eggnog Glaze for the breakfast WIN! These are easy to make and dairy free. (Thanks to Silk for sponsoring this post!)

Then topped with toasted coconut and pecans. Crisco was also a sponsor of the bake-off.
13. Homemade Strawberry Custard-Filled Donuts
These donuts are the perfect combination of sweet and fruity custardiness (not sure if that is an actual word). The fried dough is light and airy and basically turns into a sugary crust once filled. The custard is swirled with fresh, sun-kissed strawberries, that is good enough to eat with a spoon.

It was important that doughnuts weren’t too big, too oily and that they had a good white ring around them. Plus of course, the filling had to be absolutely amazing. Most of the time the filling was a homemade marmalade. Our first doughnut frying lesson was about three years ago and let me tell you, they weren’t amazing. However, these are terrific!
34. Copy Cat Krispy Kreme
Krispy Kreme was popping up all over cities about 10 years ago, but since then, many of them have closed, and it is not as easy to get those melt in your mouth treats.
