HI GUYS! Happy Friday! HAPPY NATIONAL DOUGHNUT DAAAAAY!

I am a HUGE fan of HOMEMADE doughnuts. Caps Lock needed because, you know, emphasis and such.

I am not someone that would make a trip to a Dunkin Donuts or a Krispy Kreme – I’ve had one bite of a Krispy Kreme doughnut, and, uhm WOW! – but I am that someone who will get up on a Sunday morning to bake OR fry a batch of doughnuts without much thought. I love MY doughnuts (donuts)! Obnoxious? Perhaps. BUT I just really enjoy homemade-anything.

Homemade doughnuts may look like an all day project, but they’re less work than you think, and the result is a truly great, hot, delicious doughnut.

Thus, since today is National Doughnut Day – and there’s a really good story behind it, including the recognition of women’s contribution to World War 1 – I am sharing 8 of my favorite QUICK & EASY doughnuts recipes, including the recipe for these amazing Yogurt Doughnut Holes, which is an updated recipe from the Diethood archives.

These Yogurt Doughnut Holes hail from my beautiful Macedonia.

Funny thing is, IN Macedonia these doughnut holes are called, “American Doughnuts”! And the reason they carry this name is because of the round shape. But when I asked the street vendor in Macedonia about his secret ingredient in these “American Doughnuts”, he said, “YOGURT! What else?!”… which is what Macedonians use for every.thing, from a sunburn to a Pita. American doughnuts, indeed. 😀

Doughnuts can be made from a quick bread dough or a yeast bread dough. These are definitely a quick bread – ain’t nobody got time for the dough to rise. Also, the yogurt is the secret to keeping them super light and moist, and the addition of 2 tablespoons vanilla is to keep them extra flavorful. If you want, use only 1 tablespoon, but I still think you should use 2. :-)

If you are looking for a flavorful, light and fluffy doughnut to enjoy, consider giving these a try. Hit that save button and make them today! OR this weekend. You will love ’em!!

    I can’t believe how good these look, I’ve actually never made doughnuts at home before but I think it’s time to try!

    I am such a donut addict. You have no idea! All of these donuts look amazing. I am a huge fan of making donuts at home. Only because I am too embarrassed to show my face at the donut shop more than 3 times a week. lol
    Pinning these!

    Ohhhh definitely I want to have a bite of this! I was at a birthday party and birthday girl’s dad is from Macedonia. I was talking to him about a great Macedonian food blogger (aka you). 😀 Wish this was served at the party! heheh.

    Your photos are stunning and your recipes sound delectable. We would love for you to share them at thefeastingeye.com. The Feasting Eye is still a bit new, but I think you will like what you see :-).

  5. says

    A big fat CONGRATULATIONS on your new home. Can’t wait to see more pictures. I would eat that entire bowl of doughnut holes.. no kidding. :)

  6. says

    Oh, you made me chuckle! Congrats on being a ball-sy blonde who can’t do the dishes! And congrats on the house (woo hoo!)! These doughnut holes are a perfect way to celebrate :)

  7. says

    Wow – congratulations on the new house!! (Love the brick around the entryway.) I also love these Macedonian doughnuts! If you’re too busy fixing up the new house to enjoy them, please feel free to send ’em my way!

    Your donut holes look delicious and using yogurt for flavour, tenderness and liquid sounds like a wonderful idea. I recently researched a similar Romanian donut type dessert called “papanasi” and wonder whether I could use your batter as a base instead. Something to consider.

    Good luck on the fixer-up. We bought a similar property 30 yrs ago and are still working on it.

  9. says

    Congratulations!!!! A new house – how exciting is that! We’ve bought two fixer uppers and, even though it was a lot of hard work, the results were fabulous! The one we are in now is almost complete and we’re ready to sit back, relax and enjoy it. :) So have fun! You scrumptious little donut holes are the perfect way to celebrate!

  10. Nancy R says

    Congratulations Kate! That’s so exciting! I’m sure the fixer-upper will keep you all busy.

    I think these yogurt doughnut holes look amazing. I cannot wait to make these first thing tomorrow morning.
