Tidbit Tuesday: D'oh!

Good grief - yesterday was one of these days. Today's not much better, I'm afraid. This is gonna turn into one of those weeks, you know, where time zips by and you get absolutely nothing done. Sigh...

Need a good pick-me-up... and what better than donuts? I have to admit I'm addicted to the stuff now, after a friend of mine steered me to a bakery that makes donuts here that taste pretty much like Krispy Kreme's. But sadly, feeding an addiction equals money, and these treats do add up to quite an amount after all.

This got me on the Net, scouring for the recipe for making donuts. I tried a few, but this one is the best I've found. Real easy, cheap, not time-consuming at all. Check out the video - it's really self-explanatory.

Just FYI - the amount of flour is 2 cups. He also bakes these donuts, which is really the healthy way. However, I have fried them and they didn't come out soggy or even greasy at all. And also too, he says to 'lightly flour' your board when you're going to knead the refrigerated dough. It requires a little more flour than 'lightly floured' to get the dough to that smooth ball that you can roll out. :)

Real easy to make - I even brought the boys in the kitchen and had them cut the shapes. They had tons of fun!

Dunk them in glaze and sprinkles like in the video, or do what I did - I drenched the tops in Nutella. Pure yum!

Try it - really worth the effort. :)

From Mauritius with love,

i can't believe you're writing about donuts? Just trying to make me get into the car and drive down to Krispy Kreme, aren't you?

Sounds like you and the boys had fun.
