Patisserie Breakfast at Luxe Lounge- Westin Hotel

Luxe Lounge is one of my go-to places for a long coffee break here in Qatar.  Hush ambiance, comfy seats, good food.  What’s not to like.

The recipe provided different types of glazes but it was too much for my tired being to make so I only opted for the choco glaze.  The result? very light and delicious donuts! It’s as good as fried donuts with less oil. I convinced myself that since it’s healthier, I can eat as much as I want. However,  the kids and my husband beat me to it. I haven’t even finished glazing all the donuts when they started eating. I made about 2 dozens but they just gobbled it all up. …
