Sometimes it seems like my best recipes are born out of a desire not to waste leftovers. These salted caramel donuts definitely fall into this category. Regular readers will remember my Salted Caramel and Pecan Monkey Bread. It was a big hit in our house, but now I have a jar of homemade salted caramel leftover. What can you do with an excess of caramel sauce?? I thought about eating it straight from the fridge but decided to put it to better use.
I had already been toying with the idea of making donuts when a brilliant idea struck me! Why not make filled, salted caramel donuts. I know, it’s a stroke of genius. When you try them I’m sure you will agree.
The donut batter can be made with the help of a lot of fabulous labour saving devices, or it can be made by hand. So, you see there is no excuse not to make these delicious treats.
In my house sweet dishes don’t necessarily get the love they deserve. For some reason I am part of a family that can walk passed cakes, cookies, and slices with out even considering taking a bite or two. It can be a little depressing being the cook for this family. Anyway, the whole family absolutely smashed these babies, so I thinks it’s safe to say they’re a sure thing in any normal, dessert loving household.
Don’t forget to pin the recipe for later.

What other fillings do you think would go well in a donut? I have to admit I do like the standard creme patisserie or jam filling.
