Back to school time, which means back to reality time.

Summer flew by as it tends to do, and the long summer days and late nights will be over soon.  It seems like we just opened the pool and soon I will be calling to close it back up before the leaves start to fall.

Fall may be around the corner, but my fetish with zucchini has yet to recede or fade to the background.  But it is digressing fast and I am blaming my supplier, the garden. My supplier who has created a habit that will be hard to break, and who is breaking it for me, against my will.

I mean I came up with that killer gluten-free zucchini bread recipe a few weeks ago, and I can’t stop making loaf after loaf.

While dreaming of my zucchini bread I started thinking of other ways to bake up my beloved zucchini and I thought of donuts.  Yea, donuts, why wouldn’t my awesome bread translate into a baked donut recipe?

I gave it a go, and it translated quite well.  A fun breakfast twist on a classic recipe.

I am not too broken up on the wane of my zucchini supplies, I mean the fall apples and pumpkins are right around the corner, and oh the possibilities.

  • Drizzle chocolate over donuts as much or as little as you like. Stick in the fridge to hurry along the chocolate setting or enjoy right away with the ooey-gooey chocolate.
