Today is National Doughnut Day. It’s a true thing. It’s been happening for over 75 years, and was created by The Salvation Army to honour the men and women who would serve doughnuts to the soldiers during WWI. Although the original intent behind Doughnut Day may be forgotten, the fact that it is national doughnut day is not missed in today’s society. Just check Twitter and Instagram where #nationaldoughnutday has been trending since first thing this morning.
At the last minute, I decided to create, bake, photograph, and post a new doughnut recipe before picking the kids up for school. So far, I’m on track, I have a few minutes to go before picking them up. 🙂
Why did I decide on these gluten free Maple Walnut Doughnuts? Well, I’ve had them on my mind for a LONG time. The few times I would splurge on a doughnut at the local doughnut shop, in my pre gluten-free days, I would get a maple walnut doughnut. I think it’s very Canadian as well. Now I can enjoy them anytime I want, in about 30 minutes or less.
