In a perfect world, donuts would be just like vegetables. You could eat as much as you want, not only because they healthy, but you would not put on any weight. If this world exists, please let me know so I can teleport over there ASAP.
Donuts are one of life’s simple joys and these irresistible circles of sweetness are pretty hard to resist. If you have gone to Krispy Kreme and they are freshly baked, then you already know that you are coming home with at minimum a dozen, whether plain, glazed, chocolate, filled, or sprinkles.
So what is the best way to go about storing donuts, if you happen to have an excess in your home? There are a couple options available, see them below:
Out at Room Temperature
If you have some donuts and you plan on keeping them in a couple of hours or days, you can keep them out until you are ready to consume them. To ensure that they do not go stale quickly, it is a good idea to keep them sealed up. You can wrap them in plastic wrap, Ziploc bags, foil or even put them in a plastic bag. Keeping them covered will help to keep them fresh, especially if you are going to eat them like a day or two after.
In the Refrigerator
You can keep donuts up to a week if you store them inside the fridge. Once again, you have to keep them covered to ensure maximum freshness. You can wrap them in plastic wrap, foil or a plastic bag or keep them in an air tight plastic container. When it comes time to reheating, you have many options available once taking it out the fridge.
In the Freezer
If you are looking at storing the doughnuts for a longer period of time, you can also freeze them. Frozen donuts can be stored for up to 3 months, you just have to ensure that you package them for freezing properly.
As you can see, there are tons of options available when it comes to storing donuts. The method you choose really depends on the length of time you want to keep them.
So go ahead and pig out
and if you have tons leftover, then you can always put them away for another day 😉
