For some people, Valentine’s Day is about love. For others, Valentine’s Day is about cookies, brownies, cupcakes and of course, doughnuts. Whether love is in the air or you’ll be spending the weekend alone with Netflix and a box of chocolate truffles that you bought yourself, there are two things for certain: doughnuts are delicious and doughnut recipes don’t have to be long and complicated. 

Here are 12 doughnut recipes to fire up your oven for over this long weekend.
