I apologize for teasing you, but I’m not sharing a recipe in this post.

Because as tasty as these baked glazed pumpkin donuts look, they just didn’t work out very well. I blame it on too much applesauce making the donuts too dense and moist, followed by a shortage of powdered sugar and an attempt to create an alternative glaze which made the donuts a mushy mess after a few hours.

I was going to toss the pictures just like I tossed the extra donuts (it’s torture for me to throw away food, even if I don’t love it) but I decided that they could serve as a good point.

Pretty food doesn’t always taste great.

And food with amazing flavor and exceptional ingredients doesn’t always look pretty.

So, remember. Don’t judge a donut by it’s picture. Or something like that.
