What's the holiday season without some delicious gingerbread? The aroma of ginger filling the home is a heavenly smell. And to celebrate with these festive flavors, I'm baking up some gingerbread doughnuts with an orange ginger glaze. Perfect for Christmas morning breakfast or snacking on all December long.
The mixture of ginger, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg will not only fill your kitchen with a warm and cozy aroma, but it gives these doughnuts their festive winter flavors. Although these doughnuts can be eaten plain without a glaze, perfect for dipping in your coffee, the addition of the orange ginger glaze is a nice balance to these doughnuts.
This recipe is quick and simple (a plus for the busy holiday season). It does not require any frying or yeast and yields a fluffy cake like doughnut. Careful not to over mix your batter or else you will end up with dense doughnuts.
Turn up the Christmas music and bake up some of these gingerbread doughnuts to snack on as your wrap your holiday gifts, put together your Christmas dinner menu and prepare to finish any last minute holiday shopping.Print
