This recipe was inspired by the stale donuts sitting on my kitchen counter.  Some of you may have known me by now that I don’t like to throw food away.  My mom had ingrained in us that there are many people suffering from hunger.  So, we must treasure everything we have.

Many years ago, I used stale donuts to make a dessert.  I thought that I would try something new this time.

Man, oh man...the first bite was like in heaven. 



CHEF NOTES

This recipe calls for stale donuts.  Fresh ones are fine, too.

Donuts must be either plain or just some cinnamon sugar on top.  Stay away from those with icing or glaze.

These donuts can absorb the French toast batter in a second.  So, only dip it in real quick, turn over and out.

Yes, you can double or triple this donut French toast recipe.
