Doughnuts are one of the best treats around: sweet, fluffy, often colorful and frosted, and great to make homemade! Whether you have them for breakfast or dessert, they’re sure to put a smile on your face. There’s so much more to doughnuts than your basic glazed (although we love those as well!), and we have some tips and tricks for how to bring a little excitement to your homemade doughnut recipes! Check these out on our Food Monster App, but first, get started with these Blogger Tips!

1. Filled Doughnuts

Biting into a perfect doughnut is wonderful already, but when you have a tasty filling in there as well, it takes it to the next level! These Honeycomb Doughnuts from Trine Rask have an amazing crème pâtissière filling. If you like a classic filled doughnut, these Classic Cream-Filled Doughnuts from Trine Rask are for you! Or, you can get creative with your filling, like with Matcha Glazed Vanilla Bean Doughnuts With Matcha Cream Filling from Sarah Pether or Caramel Filled Doughnuts from Holly Jade!
