If I could have any superpower, it would probably be to summon dozens of doughnuts at anytime. Sadly, such power does not exist (yet)… but my research is getting close.
To celebrate the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming, along with the best national holiday known to man, (National Doughnut Day); I whipped up some Baked Funfetti Spider-Man Doughnuts!
Peter Parker has always been one of my favorite comic book characters. He is just an everyday relatable kid. You know, as long as you’re a teenager having to “deal with the normal struggles of adolescence in addition to those of a costumed crime-fighter.” Easy stuff right?
Get your taste of justice (in doughnut form) with this festive doughnut recipe!
