ALMOND RASPBERRY BAKED DONUTS – MOD MAX GLAM

Please allow me to preface this post by saying that I’m not a huge fan of donuts…. mainly because they are deep fried and the actual dough has very little flavor which is then over-compensated by a thick sugary glaze.

Baked donuts however are the complete opposite and  I have to admit that they can be quite addictive. Since there’s absolutely nothing health conscious about the traditional donut, I wanted to attempt making it a bit less evil and I have to say that I am quite impressed! These are delectable cake donuts made with almond paste, topped with a sweet yogurt honey vanilla glaze and  fresh raspberries. The combination of fresh fruit with a baked donut is simply divine…….. and I don’t feel so guilty reaching for a second!

Here’s my recipe for Almond Raspberry Baked Donuts!
