201609221613this escapade into donuts
It’s May! Which means Cinco de Mayo is coming up! Cinco de Mayo to me basically means my birthday’s in two days! But for the rest of the USA it basically means Margaritas. Two years ago I made some delicious Margarita Cupcakes, but this year I wanted to try something different, and I’ve had some Donut Pans sitting around for a while – so I decided to make some baked margarita donuts!
Memphis has this thing with donuts. We have 2 of the best donut establishments ever. Gibson’s donuts, which Alton Brown loves, and Donald’s donuts, which has an apple fritter that is to die for. So being around, and eating all these donuts recently is what really inspired this escapade into donuts.
And while I was looking around for existing Margarita donut recipes, I stumbled across these Tequila Shot Doughnut Holes by Oh Bite It. How amazingly delicious do these look? And one whole cup of tequila? Love it. But, I wanted something baked – mainly because baked holds up better and I prefer the option to graze on whatever I bake throughout the week.
So I made these. They’re baked tequila donuts (and you can taste the tequila) glazed with margarita glaze (it’s lime-y, tequila-y, and has the perfect amount of salt).
