Since my babies were little, it’s been a tradition to have a Valentine’s breakfast on the 14th with everything pink and heart shaped–pancakes and bacon and strawberry milk and fresh fruit. My kids love it. Since Valentines is on Saturday this year and not a school night, I will be able to put a little more time into our Valentine’s breakfast, so baked doughnuts is on the menu. I followed Sally’s baked doughnuts recipe, and I let the kids decorate with pink and purple glaze and valentine-themed sprinkles. It’s best to put the sprinkles and glaze in small bowls and just dunk the doughnuts upside down to give it a full coverage and easy clean up.
We made enough to give as gifts that my kids are giving to their teachers. I just took a popcorn box, filled the bottom with cinnamon heart candy and topped with a couple of doughnuts. The heart balloon will be attached to the outside of the box with a note from my kids.
