A Winter Breakfast of Gingerbread Donuts
I asked some of my facebook fans if they thought gingerbread was strictly a Christmas time flavor or if it could be used all winter or all year? They responded with a resounding Yes, it could be used all winter. So I decided to try use my donut pan again and bake up a gingerbread donut. All I can say is Yum! This is a great recipe with a great gingerbread flavor that is sure bring smiles to your winter breakfast table.
