Is there a better way to spend a Saturday morning than schlepping around your kitchen making donuts? I would like to submit that there is not. Many thanks to Julia for putting the idea in my head 🙂

I used this recipe from 101 Cookbooks.

Mix all the ingredients together. When the dough finishes rising, roll it out on a floured surface. I didn’t have round cookie cutters, so I had to improvise. I used a water glass for the outer ring and the case for a candy thermometer for the middle hole.

After they rise a second time, bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the bottoms start to turn golden brown. Let them cool for a couple of minutes, dip them in melted butter (5 Tbs) and toss in cinnamon sugar (1 cup sugar, 2 Tbs cinnamon).

It turns out that candy thermometer case wasn’t large enough; my donuts baked closed. Note for next time: larger inside hole.

They were still yummy! I approve. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Consume with French press coffee. Not necessary, but highly recommended.

I wanna know: What recipes do I need to add to my list? Feel free to reference books or link to your blog!
