Doughnut Attempt Number One

Brother Chef dreams of doughnuts. He talks about doughnuts. He sniffs the air and sighs when we walk past the bakery section in stores. His little heart was just crying out for chocolate and sprinkles.

So we borrowed grandma's ancient doughnut maker and gave it a go.(She has every kitchen gadget known to man since the 60s, seriously, last year we had a huge fondue party complete with lime green skewers!)

We decided to base our batter on Elana's Biscuit Recipe, but we added in more sweetener. The texture worked perfectly in the Donut Maker and we had fun dropping donuts all over the cookie sheet!

When they came out of the oven though, they had baked up like cookies not doughnuts. They tasted great, but were thin and crispy instead of fat and fluffy.

We didn't care though and slapped melted, dark chocolate and all natural sprinkles all over those babies!
And they were sooo good! Brother Chef was quite giddy.

It made a lot of them so we froze the leftovers and throw them into our lunches once in a while. They acutally tasted a lot better after two days as they softened up quite a bit.


'Tis a lesson you should heed,
Try, try again.
If at first you don't succeed,
Try, try again. - Thomas H. Palmer (1782 - 1861)


Junior Chefs' Opinions!
Sister Chef: "7 stars. They taste ok but if you tell me it's a donut and then give it to me I will be disappointed."
Brother Chef: "10 stars, they look like donuts yay! Can you put 6 of them in white box for me?"
Little Chef: "They not donuts!!! They get no stars! But I will eat one. Maybe two."
