It is my first recipe of the new year, so I thought it was only appropriate to share a donut with you!! If you are new around here, then you might not know about my donut obsession.  I absolutely love making (and eating) baked donuts, and so of course when I was thinking about my first recipe for 2015 I naturally wanted to make donuts.

But don’t worry, I’m not going to ruin the new year’s resolution diets (at least not yet…) – these are SKINNY DONUTS!!

And as I’m sure you could guess, what I want to do almost always involves baking. You’ve probably noticed an abundance of breakfast recipes on Chez CateyLou, and that’s because I love making breakfast for us on Saturday mornings. Muffins and donuts and coffee cake and pancakes – I love all of them! Last Saturday I made Chocolate Chip Raspberry Muffins and wow, did we devour these.

These rolls are absolutely delicious and could not be prettier.  This is what I call a showstopper of a fall breakfast!
