I did it!
I had been wanting to try making donuts for years. But I was scared of frying dough and I didn't want 36 donuts sitting around. Even I have my limits. ;) But as Dave and I planned out a New Year's Day brunch, I thought it might be a good time to give it a try.
So I did!
Here's my thoughts on donuts:
- They are easier and faster than bagels.
- They don't taste that good without the frosting because the dough recipe I used (found here) wasn't terribly sweet.
- These were better on the second day. I made them the day before the brunch and was worried, because the one I taste-tested felt and tasted a little too oily. But I didn't notice that at all on day 2.
- They are soooo pretty.
- They are easily, easily worst the ba-gillion compliments I got at the brunch. Lots of "YOU made the donuts??" "Wait, you MADE these?" Sorry, but man do I love that.
Blogging goals for the week:
I have chosen and worked on a word for 2011 and am hoping to share more about that tomorrow.
Yesterday Brenda asked about my schedules and planning and whatnot and I have something neat to share about that.
So fingers crossed that I can get those together in the next couple of days. But right now Isaac is staring at me wondering about his oatmeal. So, that's my cue. Have a good one.
