Start Father’s Day off in a sweet way by decorating doughnuts for dad.

What father wouldn’t love a plate full of yummy homemade doughnuts for his Father’s Day breakfast? Kids can have fun cutting out letters to personalize their doughnuts for “Dad,” “Daddy,” Papa,” or “Father” and even little hands can help add special toppings and decorate the doughnuts for dad.

For those men with a hearty appetite, you can add a Breakfast Sandwich Topped with Sports Ball Cheese to go along with his sweet doughnuts. And don’t forget a nice  bowl of fruit and something to drink to round out the meal.

DECORATED DOUGHNUTS FOR DAD

Ingredients:

1 tube Pillsbury pizza dough (or use homemade dough)

chocolate frosting or any other flavor your dad might enjoy

toppings – chopped nuts, sprinkles, toffee bits, coconut, non-pariels, and even chopped bacon

Oil to fry doughnuts

Supplies:

alphabet cookie cutters

pan or fryer

candy thermometer if using pan to fry doughnuts

paper towels

metal cooling rack

parchment or wax paper lined baking sheet (for ease of clean up)

Instructions:

Dad Doughnuts

Unroll pizza dough. Cut out “DAD” using cookie cutters, or whatever words or phrases you like. You could do “We Love Dad” or “#1 Dad” or “Daddy.” There are so many possibilities.

Remove all of the excess dough. You can keep that and fry it up for the kids to snack on.

Dad Doughnuts

I was able to get 6 “DAD” sets out of one pizza dough.

Frying Dad Doughnuts

Heat oil to 350 degrees and fry the doughnuts, flipping them over, until both sides are deep golden brown. Drain the doughnuts on a paper towel and allow them to cool, so that little hands can handle them easily.

Decorate Doughnuts for Dad

Set the cooled doughnuts on a cooling rack set over a parchment or wax paper lined baking sheet.

Heat some chocolate frosting in the microwave for about 10 seconds just until it is thin enough to pour.

Have the kids either dip the doughnut in the frosting, or pour the frosting over the doughnut. Then immediately while the frosting is wet, have them sprinkle on some toppings.

Serve to dad immediately. He’ll be smelling them and wont be able to resist.
