I couldn't pass up the opportunity to share one more gingerbread recipe before it was too late.
Gingerbread Baked Donuts combine two of my favorite things - gingerbread and donuts - in one delicious, sugar-dusted little package.
These donuts make a great holiday breakfast! They are easy to make and don't take very much time to prep and bake. So you can be in and out of the kitchen in no time.
