A year ago, I got a special little cookbook on doughnuts. I had thought I might do them for Christmas at work. A friend gave me her fryer. I got doughnut cutters and that is as far as it went. Now that it's a year later, I finally thought I would give it a try. These were cake doughnuts. The dough is really soft. It's a little tricky cutting them out and getting them in the fryer still nice and round.
And it takes a fair amount os space and mess.
They tasted pretty good though. I was going to make pink feather boa doughnuts. I didn't have red food coloring handy, so they ended up white. Topped with coconut. I'm not sure I'm going to do this too much again though. I do want to try some raised doughnuts and maybe some baked ones.
One of my good friends just started a blog and I didn't really get it. I have kept a journal for years and was not sure that a more "public" journal was something that held any interest for me. I have found, however, that I have enjoyed reading her posts and commenting on them. I have started reading other blogs and am finally coming "up to speed" and seeing some value in the process of sharing thoughts in a way that is unique from both conversation and journaling but somehow a combination of both. Welcome to my blog!
