Okay, I am a spoiled mom. In the past, if I wanted donuts…well, I live in Richmond VA – home of the Krispy Kreme Donut… I would go buy them.
But…alas… I am trying to be more frugal and that means not buying donuts whenever I want them.
Right now I am in the middle of a 14 day working stint. I spent a lot of last weekend making and freezing dinners and breakfast foods for the next two weeks which has really worked out well. Read about it here and here.
But, last night as I was getting home, I felt bad for my kids who would have to go to daycare again for the next two days and not get a real weekend!
My usual treat for them is to buy some Krispy Kreme Donuts for the weekend – and boy can they put them away! My oldest usually eats 4 and the younger ones 2-3 each. I knew I wasn’t going to go buy them because it just isn’t in the budget so, I went looking for a recipe to make yeast donuts with glaze and made this recipe I found on COOKS.COM
They came out GREAT!! The kids were eating them all night and then I brought some in to daycare for them (and some of the donut holes) and I also brought some to work. They were pretty easy to make and I had all of the ingredients so it didn’t cost me that much.
I will be making these again!
