Donuts are one of my most favorite treats. Memories of pink boxes filled high with deep fried goodness: chocolate, powdered, glazed and jellied, donuts are the ultimate comfort food.

Making donuts at home can be easy, even a little healthier and by using King's Hawaiian® Orginal Hawaiian Sweet Round Bread you’re already one step ahead! Baked donuts provide a lighter alternative to traditional donuts and by adding Lilikoi Jelly you get the enjoyment of a sweet treat with the flavors of Aloha!

Food brings family together and I’m always looking for ways to show my kids that cooking can be fun and I try to also infuse a little bit of our culture by adding Aloha spirit to all my recipes. National Donut Day is June 7! Ono (delicious) Food Brings Us Together so celebrate the day with KING'S HAWAIIAN Lilikoi Jelly Donuts!
