Well my absolute love of donuts has struck again. This time in one of my most favorite cake flavors! I’m sure you’ve seen the well-known Texas Sheet Cake floating around Pinterest these last few years. Well did you know that it is also made in a white almond version! YUUUUP! I so went there a while back and I was converted into an instant lover. But in my style, I must have everything in carry around form, so I made the cake into donuts.

Everything about these donuts has me smiling. I’m a huge almond lover so these are right up my alley. They have a light airy texture and a nice subtle almond flavoring. That icing though, makes these donuts. As it does with the cake as well. I would just eat it with a spoon all day every day. But….I don’t think that my teeth will enjoy that.

If you don’t believe that I have a huge donut fetish…why don’t you head over here, here, here and here. I have more, but I’ll cap it at 4 for now. I have to admit, out of all of them…these are probably my favorite, so far. Don’t hold me to that, next week I may change my mind. But almond will always hold they keys to my heart. So go make as soon as you can. Your co-workers, kids, family, random people will love you if you brought a baker’s dozen of these handheld treats!
