There's no doubt that fresh-from-the-fryer doughnuts are amazing, but cleaning up the splattered oil is definitely not so fun. (Plus, disposing of the spent oil is kind of a hassle.)

With flavors like carrot cake, red velvet, chai spiced, and double Nutella, these recipes will have you in a trance.
