Welcome to Flavors of Fall where we celebrate all things associated with fall like squash, apples, pecans, sweaters, football; you get the idea! 

Ellen from Family Around the Table and Christie from A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures have gathered 24 bloggers who have over 100 recipes they’re sharing this week in celebration of cool weather and sweatshirts. 

We hope you find many must make recipes so get your pinning, tweeting, and sharing fingers ready!

From Monday through Saturday we will be sharing dozens of recipes a day. I’m starting the week out with the absolutely delicious Cinnamon Glazed Donut French Toast.

Let’s face it, our eyes are often bigger than our stomach and a baker’s dozen donuts might actually wind up being too much for us.

I’m sure I am not the only one on the planet who winds up with stale donuts on day 2 or 3.

I hate to throw things away, but even sometimes trying the tricks to revive them, simply don’t work.

So why not use them in a new and creative, yet totally delicious way?

How about Cinnamon Glazed Donut French Toast. Yes, you read that right.

It only requires a handful of ingredients and while I’m sure you could technically use fresh donuts, stale is best, just as stale bread is best for regular french toast.

Cinnamon Glazed Donut French Toast makes breakfast fun and unique. Our family adores these and it’s a great way to use up your leftover donuts.

You know the ones. The dry, stale donuts that sit in the box until somebody notices and tries to think of where to throw out that giant box of not delicious donuts anymore. They just sit.

Well, guess what? They don’t have to anymore.

It doesn’t matter if they are Krispy Kreme, Dunkin Donuts or your local grocery bakery, any day old or more donut is gonna do just fine.

Recipe for Cinnamon Glazed Donut French Toast

Cinnamon Glazed Donut French Toast

Cinnamon Glazed Donut French Toast

Yield: 1-2 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

Gooey, delicious cinnamon glazed donut french toast makes a stale donut into a delicious breakfast that young and old alike will delight in. A twist on a true classic, but made better!

Ingredients

  • 3 three day-old glazed donuts, sliced in half lengthwise (like a bagel)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup heavy cream

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, beat egg, heavy cream, vanilla extract and cinnamon together until light and frothy.
  2. Dip each slice of donut into the egg mixture for a couple of seconds, coating the whole thing. Be careful not to leave it in more than just a second or two, or you'll wind up with really soggy donut that is difficult to place down because it will fall apart.
  3. Cook donut slices on lightly greased nonstick griddle or skillet on medium heat until golden on both sides.
  4. Serve hot with syrup or honey.

We often have leftover donuts. This is such a brilliant idea! I may have to hide some next time we have donuts to try it!
