Hi everyone, I’m Michelle from Raising Amelia Rose. Christi has been a friend of mine long before our blogging days! She has been such a culinary inspiration, and has been key in helping me see that I don’t have to live without because of my celiac, rather I can make wholesome gluten free treats and meals. I am happy to be on a guest on her blog as she recuperates.
Today I am sharing my Pineapple Upside Donuts with Coconut Icing and coconut flakes! I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does.

These donuts are moist and messy, so grab a napkin and enjoy!
