Coconut Glazed Cake Donuts

Coconut Glazed Cake DonutsI mean…’donut’ get me started on all of the reasons why we love donuts in our house. As a kid, I grew up with one of my parents, usually my dad getting up before me and my sisters and going down to Neff’s Bakery. Neff’s is one of those ‘places’ and the delicious aroma and quaintness of the bakery always screamed nostalgia and everyone who grew up in small town Ohio will remember it. My sisters and I would rise to the smell of donuts…a dozen of all kinds and much like my typical self my favorite flavor changed like the color of my nail polish. Weekly!

Now that I look back on all of the fond memories one particular donut sticks out in my mind which was some sort of goodness covered in COCONUT! Yes, coconut. Not tropical, just scentful, creamy and delish!

Alas, I have created a favorite donut in our house. That is, for the coconut lovers. Coconut is one of those foods that is loved or loathed. My house is divided right down the middle. I, of course am on the love side.
