Donuts. Is there anything they can’t do?
A wise man,by the name of Homer Simpson,once voiced this feeling that I will bet we all have. I have to be honest about something-Rachel and I have been known to polish off a whole box by ourselves, all the while, arguing the side of powdered over plain or if old fashioned trumps them all. I made this recipe for theses delicious donuts one Saturday morning. I was actually shocked at how easy it was. In the end, Jake and I had eaten at least a dozen of these (not to mention the donut holes). Brew that coffee because it has a new friend coming for breakfast. Or a late brunch or a snack after lunch,etc,etc.
Here’s What You Will Need:
2 Cups Flour
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Tsp. Salt
1 Tbsp. Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp. Cinnamon
1/4 Tsp. Nutmeg
2 Tbsp. Melted Butter
1/4 Cup Buttermilk
1/4 Cup Applesauce
1 Egg Beaten
1 Quart Vegetable Oil For Frying
Sift the dry ingredients.
Add butter until it crumbles and then buttermilk and applesauce until dough is smooth but not too sticky.
Knead lightly then place on a floured surface.
Roll dough out to 1/ inch thick.
Use a donut cutter or 2 different sized biscuit cutters to cut out your donuts.
In an area nearest the stove- I set up cookie cooling racks over a cookie sheet to let the donuts cool and it also catches any oil.
Heat up the oil on medium-high. Drop in the dough and fry until golden brown on each side or around 3 minutes total.
