Whenever we go for travelling outside of Edmonton, we always make sure to make a stop at Tim Horton. Doughnuts are super yummy, sweet and sugary. I understand that its too sugary but once in a while its okay to have them. I made them before but they were fried ones and didn't turned out as soft as I wanted. One day me and my kids were in Bed Bath & Beyond and I saw this doughnut tray. You know what, my kids are my the best friends, they always allow and encourage me to spend time as I need in such stores where you can find tons of amazing household items to have. But I am not a shopaholic, thank god. I always buy stuff that is necessary, so I feel like I should get a huge round of applause for saving my dear hubby's money! Lol!
So I have made these doughnuts from the recipe that was on Wilton's Doughnut pan, but I have made few changes in this recipe. And thankfully they were super soft and yummy!!
