Homemade Pumpkin Cake Doughnuts
Mallory Staley, Pastry Chef at 9 Restaurant in New York City, makes a savory pumpkin cake doughnut, instead of traditional yeast ones because it "provides a better texure and I feel like it's not as fatty — even though I know that's silly to say." Her doughnuts are inspired by the season; she does a blueberry cake doughnut with a milkshake on the side during the warmer months.These spiced treats are fast and easy to make at home. If you need advice along the way, check out this slideshow of the doughnut-making process for some helpful tips and visuals. Enjoy! — Yasmin Fahr

Krafne
We were in the region of Međimurje, in northern Croatia, during for the carnival-like celebration called Fašnik this February. This is a time of celebrations signifying the end of winter darkness and the welcoming of spring. During this time, there is a parade on Sunday through the center of the town of Čakovec. Here you can see people dressed up as scarecrows and masked demons, though some of the locals wear fancy dress outfits that aren’t as scary. At the end of the parade, they burn an effigy stuffed with hay to signify victory over the demons of darkness, as well as to mark the end of festivities. This is the occasion for people to eat krafne — doughnuts — and because they’re a specialty of this particular time of year, people can easily down three or four in one sitting.

Krispy Kreme Doughnut Copycat
This copycat recipe will keep your doughnut demons at bay while you argue the perennial doughnut debate — Dunkin’ Doughnuts or Krispy Kreme (sorry, Dunkie’s loyalists). For the recipe, we went to the source — New Orleans — and found that Krispy Kreme doughnuts might have more to do with beignets then their shape suggest.
