You’ll need a BAKED doughnut pan for this recipe – if you don’t have one – the doughnuts will turn out flat. Here’s a link to see what they look like: Wilton Doughnut Pan.
No. 3 : Clever Idea
Any time you want to add a sweet flavor to a recipe without adding more sugar, sweet-tasting cinnamon is a good addition. We perceive this spice as always being a part of a sweet treat – so if it has cinnamon in it – it must be sweet! I even use this trick with my morning oatmeal, by sprinkling a little cinnamon, I think it tastes sweeter. Plus, I get all the nutritional goodies from the cinnamon including its antioxidant properties. It can even boost brain function!

100% Cabernet Franc is what makes this bright sparkler a winner with a light sweet treat like this week’s doughnuts. Its fruity flavor, with a rosy-scented aroma adds to its fresh, light citrus-crisp taste. Cabernet Franc is the “daddy” grape to more familiar Cabernet Sauvignon, and its a relation that is worth getting to know better!
