Gear up for a sugar rush, because today is National Doughnut Day and we found eight recipes to celebrate. Commemorating the men and women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I, National Doughnut Day has been celebrated every first Friday of June since 1938. Preferring to ditch the fried (we're trying to be semi-healthy here!) we found baked recipes the kids will go crazy for. Stick with the classic or wow them with Oreos — today is a holiday, and you're about to make their morning!

See the recipe after the break!
