Happy National Donut Day! Where To Find Free Donuts & Recipes To Make Your Own

In case you weren’t aware, today is National Donut Day. Instead of featuring a recipe for our Food Friday I decided to put together a list of some fantastic donut recipes you can make yourself. If you aren’t the cooking kind, or are just running short on time, you’ll be happy to know that Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kreme are giving away free donuts for today only!

Both chains took the happy news to Facebook with Krispy Kreme listing the event on their main page and Dunkin’ Donuts creating an entire page in honor of the celebratory event. Keep in mind – Krispy Kreme is giving away one donut per customer (no purchase necessary) while at Dunkin’ Donuts you are required to purchase a beverage before they hand over your free treat.

Now, to the homemade goodies ;). If you have never had a homemade donut you don’t know what you are missing. They are HEAVEN! My daughters and I have made many different varieties (Italian Lemon is my personal favorite) and its a really fun project to do with your kids.
