Slightly sweet, slightly savory, hugely tasty, these baked Cinnamon Bacon Doughnuts also happen to be gluten free and are perfect for breakfast or even a party snack!
Today happens to be a pretty special day!
Today, we are having a party! A surprise-virtual party which I am so stinking excited to be a part of!
Today, Chris @ Shared Appetite rallied 21 of us bloggers together to throw a surprise virtual manly baby-shower for fellow food blogger, my dear friend and mentor, and member of the dude-food-blogger “wolfpack” – David @ Spiced! David and his wife, Laura are expecting their first baby in November and well – SURPRISE Mr. & Mrs. Spiced!!!
So, for this party I decided to show up baring these Cinnamon Bacon Doughnuts.
These baked, gluten free, doughnuts were inspired by the powdered sugar doughnuts David posted earlier this year. I had given up making doughnuts till I stumbled on his recipe and – the cliche is true – the rest was history! Now doughnuts are a part of our monthly weekend ritual!
One weekend, I made some cinnamon doughnuts which my daughter and I decided to have with a side of bacon, when my daughter suggested I should just bake the cinnamon doughnuts with the bacon inside them. Which is what lead to these, slightly sweet, slightly savory, hugely tasty, Cinnamon Bacon Doughnuts with a cinnamon drizzle and bacon crumbles!
Congrats David and Laura – all the cliches out there about babies are true – the joy that little Spiced is gonna bring to y’alls home is indescribable! Wishing you both a safe and healthy pregnancy and delivery. I am so excited for y’all and cannot wait to meet Baby Spiced!
And, Chris @ Shared Appetite – thanks so very much for rallying us together and hosting this fabulous virtual-baby shower for David!
