Delectable Doughnuts

For the past couple of weeks, I have had a major craving for doughnuts. Now, that's not really out of the ordinary for me, I'll admit... but now that I'm pregnant, I definitely took advantage of the situation. I haven't had any crazy pregnancy cravings hit me just yet, like pickles and ice cream, but once I crave a particular thing, I can't get it out of my head.

So bright and early Saturday morning, I pulled Chris out of bed to run a few errands and pick up some doughnuts. We bought a dozen assorted to share with his family. I ended up eating ooooh... half of that dozen? Not in one setting, but eating seven doughnuts over the course of a weekend is not exactly recommended in the pregnancy books.

Just in case that craving hits again, I thought I would look up a few recipes for homemade baked doughnuts. There are surprisingly quite a few recipes out there, and the only special tool you need is a doughnut pan (also available in mini and heart-shaped!)

Although I'm sure these treats still ring in around 150-200 calories each, they're probably a much better alternative than their fried siblings. Good for new years resolutions, good for pregnant ladies. You are very welcome.

I think that when your baby wants doughnuts, who are you to deny him/her?

Oh my, I didn't realise that you were pregnant! (Did I?!) Congratulations to you and your husband! How very exciting. And oh yes, definitely you need to listen to those cravings. And my goodness, every one of those doughnuts look soooo good.

Oh, you're killing me! ...I have had the worst craving for donuts lately, too. And I'm not pregnant -- so I am really trying hard to not cave in. :P But your blog post sure isn't helping, haha... they look sooo good!
