Pin Pineapple Upside Down Donuts with Strawberries here.
I’m celebrating today with these gorgeous and oh so delicious, Pineapple Upside Down Donuts with Strawberries. Plus, of course, a big cup of coffee. Easter morning starts early with our daughter excited to see if the Easter Bunny came. Did he fill her Easter basket? Did he hide the eggs? Does he know where he hid the eggs? That is always interesting, if Ly cannot find them all. Then it is off to see if the Easter bunny ate his carrot. By this time, I need a second cup of coffee, and would happily enjoy another donut. Luckily these beauties are baked not fried and made with whole wheat and SPLENDA®. So they are low in sugar to boot.
After the Easter egg hunt, we are off to brunch. This is a new tradition for us. We actually go out to eat instead of going to my parents for dinner. It is so relaxing to go out. There are no dishes to do! Yippee, that is like having a day off of work. I do a lot of dishes in this house. After a divine brunch, we head to my parent’s house. The Easter bunny visits them to hide eggs and gifts for my daughter too.
Yes, she is a tad spoiled by her grandparents. They always make clues for her to find the surprises. It is so funny, she is terrible at looking for things. I blame this on her father who can be looking for something in the refrigerator and not see that it is right in front of his face. Ly is pretty much the same way.
SPLENDA® Sweetener has so many different ways to help you reduce sugar on Sweet Swaps. Bathing suit season is just around the corner. Got to count those calories and sugar grams. Did you notice the new packaging? Isn’t it so pretty. I love the swirled writing on the packet. Bake up a batch of these Pineapple Upside Down Donuts with Strawberries for your little bunnies. They will be hopping crazy for them.
