Homemade doughnuts: Perfect for the fall season

Here are five ways to make your homemade or store-bought doughnuts — fried, frosted and then covered with outrageous toppings — perfect for the fall season.

Apple Pie Doughnut

Slice a round yeast doughnut three-quarters of the way through, coat the top with vanilla glaze, then pile apple pie filling (with added cinnamon and nutmeg if needed) in the middle. Top the doughnut’s vanilla glaze with cinnamon-sugar-coated, baked pie crust crumbles.

Maple Bacon Doughnut

Add some bacon mania to your doughnut by first glazing it with maple frosting, then topping it with loads of crumbled crispy bacon. Just before serving, cover it with some maple syrup.
