This recipe is probably one of the easiest ways to make donuts.

The recipe uses cranberry sauce and orange marmalade, but really, use whatever fruits you wish or have in your kitchen.

7. Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake


This one-serve carrot cake is the perfect definition of a single-serve dessert!

With five ingredients and almost zero drops of oil, learning how to make this funnel cake is super simple and fun.

A pound cake is the perfect coffee’s companion. I can eat it for brunch, as an afternoon snack, and even in the morning with my first cup of Joe.
