Naturally the day I plan to post about sumptuous Autumn-y sweet treats turns out to be 90 degrees.
Well, I am going to hide in the AC today and pretend it’s Autumn out and light my “Leaves” candle and everything will be okay.
Oh and eat a million doughnuts, did I mention I will eat a million doughnuts?
Awful weather is NO MATCH for doughnuts!
Though I do hope to overcome my fear of deep-frying and attempt true apple cider doughnuts this season, I just couldn’t wait to whip up a baked version so that I could eat them all without feeling guilty.
Bet you thought I’d strike that last part out and pretend I was ashamed, huh?
NOPE! These little doughnuts are so delectable, I don’t care who knows that I ate a bunch immediately after photographing them.
They are tiny; they are baked; they are the reason I am sane enough to write this post for you today. Why do I need doughnuts to keep me sane?
Oh a multitude of reasons, but the most pressing being that I, Your Humble Narrator, took on a second job this week.
I also finally read A Clockwork Orange so I apologize for the lame reference; I just couldn’t help myself.
Yes, it’s true. My work as a Multimedia Assistant leaves me with enough space in my schedule
to shove endless hours of turmoil to fit a small 3 month contract with Rutgers Future Scholars, that fantastic non-profit I worked with over the summer. They are holding a huuuuuugggggeeeee convention on college access this November, and need some help publicizing it on various digital media platforms.
I AM THE SOCIAL MEDIA GURU!
Heehee, just kidding. I am happy to help with such a great cause, and so for the next few months it’s going to get a bit more hectic around here.
What else is new?
So with the added tension of a second job, I desperately needed some sweetness in my life.
Sweetness that involved plenty of apple cider, apple pie spice, and sugar. Lots and lots of sugar.
Oh and coffee too. HAVE YOU NOTICE PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES ARE BACK?! OH MYLANTA I AM SO EXCITED I AM JUMPING UP AND DOWN AS I TYPE THIS SENTENCE.
Maybe I had a little too much coffee. Or too many doughnuts.
Oh well. Too late to turn back now!
I guess to finally get to the point: these apple cider doughnuts are DEEEEEEELIGHTFUL!
You can feel less guilty since they are baked, not fried, and they are teeny tiny so eating all of them is totally fine. If you have a problem
I feel bad for you son I got 99 problems but a doughnut ain’t one with eating all of them then share them immediately! They will go quickly.
Again, I am sorry for the strange outbursts of song and caps lock. Blame the Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
Or join in the fun! 😉
