When cranberries are in season, I get this recipe out and make these tasty doughnuts. When my children were small, I'd usually double the recipe and sometimes the doughnuts would all be gone before they could cool.
The coffee-flavored glaze on these tasty doughnuts makes them a perfect start to the morning...on Christmas Day or any day. You'll find that the recipe is a delectable way to use up leftover potatoes. —Pat Siebenaler, Random Lake, Wisconsin
I grew up near Idaho where they're famous for "spudnuts," a donut made from mashed potatoes. I reworked a recipe using sweet potatoes flecked with cranberries to come up with these doughnuts. I like to serve them for dessert. —Joni Hilton, Rocklin, California
You can try different flavors and coating colors in this recipe to suit any occasion. For Halloween at my house, it just has to be pumpkin and orange candy coating! —Johnna Johnson, Scottsdale, Arizona
If you don't live near Portland Oregon, you can create your own version of the city's famous doughnut at home. Fresh homemade doughnuts with a touch of nutmeg, creamy filling and a smooth-as-silk chocolate frosting will disappear in minutes. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
When I was a little girl, my grandmother took me aside one day and taught me how to make her famous banana beignets. Although we made them during the holidays, they're pretty fantastic any time of the year. —Amy Downing, South Riding, Virginia
Cake doughnuts remind me of family trips to South Dakota. We’d stop at Wall Drug for a dozen or so before camping in the Badlands. Maple glaze was and still is my favorite. Share a batch with friends and family who appreciate a hot, fresh apple cider donut. —Melissa Hansen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
