Despite planning a Valentine gift guide, the day has still come around and I have nothing organised. Well I do, but it's not a romantic meal for two.
My in-laws are over from Cyprus and here for the weekend. It's such a shame, the temperature is such a shock to them and they've been greeted with torrential rain,which has now turned to snow.
We're heading out for a meal tonight, but this afternoon I made these Easy Valentine Donuts.
I used a basic victoria sponge mixture and baked the doughnuts, then when they were cool, I iced them and topped them with sprinkles.
For the perfect Valentine treat serve these easy Valentine donuts with a Apricot and Mango Milkshake.
