Cinnamon Glazed Maple Donuts

Nothing is better than a warm cinnamon glazed  maple donut in the morning! The maple scent will take your over!



I had a very important discovery this weekend.  There are three things my family cannot live without (in no particular order) tv, internet and underwear.

We moved out of our house on Thursday.  We all watched as the gigantic moving truck drove off with most of our beloved possessions.  The plan was to have everything delivered to the new house the very next day.  We’d be getting our furniture,  phone, cable, internet all in the same day.  We all know what happens to the best laid plans, right?  They naturally fall apart.  I will not go into detail, but suffice it to say we were a very unhappy  family.  Our movers did not deliver our stuff until today.  We had a few necessities.  But when you can’t watch tv (or have your kids watch tv for some peace and quiet) and you can’t get on the internet (no blogging, no Pinterest, can you imagine?) AND your clean dainties are on the moving truck, you sort of lose it!!!  Before you start to crinkle your nose in disgust and think we were all stinky, we did go buy underwear for the entire family,  ASAP.!!!!  Internet was sporadic, but on occasion I could tool around.  But no tv.  I’ve never seen my husband look so sad as he did at 6:00 pm on Sunday when he couldn’t watch the end of the Ryder Cup.  I hear cats don’t adjust to moving and will often run back to their old homes.  I swear I saw my husband inch towards his running shoes.  I had to watch him very carefully.

Movers are here and now this empty space is turning into a home.  I suppose we’ll look back at this and chuckle ( I doubt I’ll laugh).  I suppose I did learn from this experience.   I discovered that we just aren’t the type of family that can totally disconnect.  We love playing games and doing arts and crafts and being outside, but gosh darn it, we love our technology and our gadgets!!    I also learned it’s a good idea to keep a stash of clean underwear handy,  you just never know!

I made these donuts before we moved.  These were sort of the last hurrah in my old kitchen.  I  wish I had them now.  Donuts can provide so much comfort can’t they?  The scent of maple would permeate these rooms and make us feel whole and cozy again.  The cinnamon glaze is dreamy.  These will be the first thing I bake in my new kitchen!  A little reminder of home!

  1. Thanks for linking up my donuts!

    Moving is exhausting! Donuts help :) They look great!

  2. Oh Yum! That looks great. Thanks Tanya for visiting me and for your sweet words. Sorry, it took me some time to get back to you. I’m following you on Pinterest :)

  3. From missing underwear to cats that go AWOL, so much can go wrong during a move. It’s a wonder any of us attempt it. Nevertheless, I hope the new house begins to feel like home for you all very quickly.
    (As for the Cup, it’s probably too soon to mention it to your husband but it was one incredible comeback. Mum’s the word.)

    • John it is starting to feel like home!! My husband heard about the Cup, boy is he sad to have missed it!

  4. Moving is one of the most tedious and exhausting things to do EVER and I hate hate hate it. Hopefully now that everything’s been delivered (after the Great Dirty Underwear Saga yesterday), you guys can get stuff back to normal and all orderly. Yikes, though! Thankfully donuts can move mountains (emotional ones, anyway) and make you and your tummy feel exponentially better when life decides to be lame and keep the TV from you!

    • Allstate right in the world again, I unpacked all my baking stuff! Thanks Hayley!

  5. Yumm!! That would be a great second breakfast right about now. Pinned for later!

    • Dinner too! Thanks for stopping over!

  6. Please send over a dozen!! YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks so much for sharing this at The DIY Dreamer.. From Dream To Reality!

  7. I just HAVE to make these donuts. I looooooooooooooove cinnamon :)

    I can’t stop smiling as I can imagine my self in your place…..
    I’d freak out if I had no clean underwear (LOL), and yes – I admit that without the internet…… it’s quite difficult (o.k …. it’s very difficult)

    • I could have just eaten the glaze!!!!

  8. Moving is one one my least favorite activities! We might be moving in February and I’m already dreading it. The donuts look delicious!

    • Oh good luck with the move if it happens!!! It is so stressful!! Make donuts, it makes life happy!

  9. Yum these sound delicious!

  10. We had the same thing when we moved – no TV?! No Internet?! NOOOO!!! But on a happy note, these donuts look SO delish! Pinned for when I finally break down for that donut pan. And thanks for sharing them at the party!!

    • Sad isn’t it? Go get the donut pan!

  11. Oh no you didn’t. Wowsa!! Please come make these for me in the morning!! :) Thanks for sharing at Foodtastic Friday!

  12. The donuts look great! I hope your settling in is going really well for you.

    • It’s finally feeling like home! Thank you!

  13. No tv or internet…how did you keep from going into shaking fits:-) Lol! Sometimes it is good to get unplugged, but only for a short while right? Glad to hear there was a quick shopping trip for the unmentionables. Now for these yummy donuts, can I have a donut with a cup of glaze to guzzle? They look fab!!!

    • I was shaking, shaking and sobbing! It was horrible! But I survived, whew! Amazing how addicted I am to the internet! Thanks Jocelyn!

  14. where do you get the cinnamon glaze for this recipe or do you have a separate recipe for this.

    • Sorry for the confusion Kim, the recipe for the glaze is the last three ingredients in the written recipe. Milk, Sugar and Cinnamon.

    What is the oven temp supposed to be? Recipe states “bake 7-9 mn. , but no temp. I’m guessing 350?
