Cinnamon Maple Cake Donuts

July 6, 2017

My entire life I have had a ginormous sweet tooth. Last summer, I went completely raw vegan and ate ONLY smoothies and fruit all day long.... looking back, I can't make a definite statement on the nutritional integrity of that, but it seemed to work for me at the time, and I LOVED it. Needless to say, I spend half my time on Pinterest looking for new dessert ideas that I can make AIP, and suddenly got a craving for donuts. So I dug out my donut pan and came up with this delicious cinnamon cake donut. Now I think I'm on a donut kick and it's safe to say that there will be many more donut recipes to come. So go buy a donut pan now! (https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Non-Stick-Dishwasher-Unicorn-Glitter/dp/B01FY9IQAC/ref=sr_1_1?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1499289962&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=donut+pan&psc=1)
