IF any of you have every been to Pennsylvania, you might have heard of Maple Donuts. They have 4 stores in PA. I love their donuts and they don't taste like they are full of chemicals, however I have become more sensitive to MSG lately, so I fear that I might not be able to eat them. Has any one ever had a problem with them?

This company is a "thaw and serve" doughnut that distributes to other retail locations which means its probably full of chemicals to keep it shelf stable. You can call the company and ask for a list of their ingredients.

They also have a toll free # listed, (800) Maple-4-U, and at least their website says they only use non-hydrogenated trans fat free oils.

Here are my rules that I would apply to Maple Donuts.
1. They are guilty until proved innocent.
2. I'm not interested in any evidence that they are innocent.

I think you made the correct decision. Isn't it amazing how much junk they put in foods like that? Don't worry, a few years from now the thought of a processed doughnut will make you nauseated just thinking about it- you'll prefer the homemade pancake instead.

Here is a recipe for homemade baked doughnuts that we really like. They are very soft and almost melt in your mouth. Plus they are low in fat and have some whole wheat flour:

Thanks a lot for the recipe. I don't worry about fat in food. I'm into body building, so all that fat just gets used as fuel. I do avoid trans fat though. All I have to do now is learn how to cook, so I can learn to cook on my own and not rely on my grand mom.
