Blogtober20 Day 21 Smile

Today is the 21st day of Blogtober, the end is in sight, and the theme today is Smile, here in Norfolk it has been pouring down all morning, and usually Tyrus detests the rain, but today for some reason he LOVED it! In fact he was actually smiling, so check out his big grin over on my Instagram (but give me a little while as i’m literally typing this at 10.25am!!)

As well as Smile its also #AppleDay so I am giving you an apple recipe….

Apple Pie Doughnuts

Holy Moly, these Apple Pie Doughnuts are what fall dreams are made of. While these are a great breakfast treat, you can easily bake these up and enjoy them anytime that you want. These fall doughnuts would be great with a hot cup of coffee in the morning or just a fun treat for the kids at the end of the day. 

I love the apple flavors that are present in this simple recipe. It really takes them to a whole new level. Anything apple is delicious and at this time in my life, is a high priority as well. 

Be certain to check out our Pumpkin Cranberry Walnut Crumble Bread as well because you can never have too many fall treats!

    The weather here is nothing to smile about. It’s grey and damp.
    Those doughnuts look so good.
    We’re over run with apples at the moment thanks to my dad’s apple trees. x
