Grab your apron and hold onto your spatula! It’s time for another edition of…

In case you didn’t know it, yesterday was…

While a donut isn’t on the list of things I eat daily or even weekly…I do LoVe a good donut! I have fond memories that are actually evoked by the taste of a donut. There’s even a donut that is so famous in my hometown of Owosso, Michigan that just mentioning the “White’s Triangle” gets people talking about their favorite part of this maple-glazed, cream-filled geometric treat!

A lil’ background…White’s Bakery was a staple in my lil’ hometown when I was growing up. It was the only bakery I ever remember and you knew all of the ladies who worked behind the counter. Sadly, the bakery closed many years ago and the “White’s Triangle” became a distant memory. This delectable triangle-shaped donut was filled with light cream and topped with this delicious maple glaze.

{My heart is racing just thinking about this donut! I’ll share a secret…I’m not a fan of anything maple—syrup, cookies, candy, etc.—but I LOVED White’s maple glaze.}

There is a happy ending to this donut tale though! Recently a new bakery was opened by a hometown boy and after many attempts…he’s secured the well-guarded secret recipe for the “White’s Triangle!” {break for a Happy Dance!} We will be back home in August producing my sister’s birthday party and I will finally get to share one of my childhood favorites with J. It may be our first stop when we get into town…my family can wait a few minutes longer to see us…especially if we arrive with a bag of triangles!

In honor of “National Donut Day,” I thought I’d share a few of my donut favorites—recipe, party, maker and displays from around the blogosphere!

    We all have to limit our visits to Lance’s Bakery in Owosso, or we would be the heaviest city in the state! I can’t wait to share this post with the bakery…Lance will be very grateful for the shout out.
