I found this recipe for homemade doughnuts in an old Taste of Home magazine that my grandma had passed on to me. I've never attempted to make doughnuts before, but this recipe seemed easy enough, so the boys and I thought we'd give it a try.
Well, they didn't turn out quite like planned. First of all I didn't have a electric fryer, so I attempted to fry them on the stove top. Not such a good idea!! The oil was too hot in the beginning, so I ended up burning the first batch. After turning the oil down, I made a second batch. This time the temp was too low and the doughnuts started falling apart as they cooked.
By the time I was on to the third batch, I decided to give up on the whole frying process and just bake them in the oven. This would also be a much healthier alternative too right?!?! Well, the end result looked more like a bagel than an actual doughnut, but hey...they still tasted all right. We topped them off with a little chocolate fudge frosting.
I actually got two thumbs up from my boys.
Oh my goodness...did we have a mess to clean up after we were finished!
Have you ever made doughnuts before? If so, I'd love to hear your recipe!
