Few weeks back I was craving for some donuts. Period. No need to explain more. I don’t want to sound apologetic. I am not. Everyone deserves to crave for some donuts once in a while, right?

Also, I was craving for some a can a spoon of dulce de leche. That’s a wrong statement, though. I crave for dulce de leche almost every other day – I just do not allow thinking about that.

So, two cravings met each other. Donuts with dulce de leche to be. There’s one thing. Being a food blogger, I try to make and shoot food which could be interesting to post on this blog. I know, you may say that donuts (with dulce) could never be a bad thing to share. However, last year I already published the recipe for Dulce de Leche Donuts.

I needed something else. Something outstanding. Or at least different from what I’ve got on here.

So I was thinking. And thinking…and then thinking over. And over and over again. Then, 27 seconds later, I was tired of thinking  and decided to keep it simple.  Yes, basically I gave up.

On the other hand, you don’t need anything to with dulce de leche.

“Well, some coconut might be not a bad idea,” I told to myself a few minutes later. Dulce de leche and toasted coconut meant to be together. Which is why famous alfajores are one of my favorite cookies. You simply cannot go wrong with this combo. By the way, what a good idea – I haven’t made alfajores for years.

So as you can imagine, these Dulce de Leche Coconut Cake Donuts were a delicious treat! Fluffy and soft cake donuts, luscious dulce de leche, and toasted coconut make the perfect combo to satisfy any cravings.

  3. Ben-WOA- Dulce de leche and toasted coconut are most definitely meant to be together!!! Though I would NEVER have thought to combine them – this flavor combo is just plain brilliant, I’ve never had alfajores so I am sitting her with my mouth open and drool hanging out of it! I don’t entertain my cravings as much as I probably should – and now I have a craving for donuts and dulce-de-leche and toasted coconuts! I wish you lived in Atlanta so I could stop by your place now! :)
