Tips for Making the Best Grilled Donuts:
- Use Plain Donuts: While you can use any type of donut for this recipe, we recommend using plain donuts so that the flavor of the grill really shines through.
- Use Melted Butter: Brushing the donuts with melted butter before grilling helps to prevent them from sticking to the grill and adds a delicious buttery flavor.
- Don't Overcook the Donuts: Donuts cook quickly on the grill, so be sure to watch them carefully to prevent them from burning. You want the donuts to be lightly toasted and browned on the outside, but still soft and fluffy on the inside.
- Customize Your Toppings: While you can never go wrong with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce, you can also get creative with your toppings. Try topping the donuts with fresh fruit, whipped cream, or even a drizzle of chocolate sauce.
