Time to Make the Donuts!

This week, one of our homemade papas, Keith, got the urge to make homemade donuts! The Mamas are rubbing off! We should also say that none of us have ever made homemade donuts! He went out and found three recipes online to try. With three new recipes we expected at least one to be a dud. To our surprise all three were fantastic and very easy to make!!! It was an awesome way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

We made these three recipes: apple fritters, glazed donuts (these taste just like Krispy Kremes!) and cake donuts with cinnamon sugar! Give these recipes a try! You may never want to buy store bought donuts again!

We were so impressed. Keith (who is NOT a baker at all) did most of the cooking!

We finally finished up the last of our apples with these apple fritters!
We don't do a lot of frying, but we found it was super easy. We used one big tub of vegetable Crisco for all three batches!

The glazed donuts are soooo light and fluffy!

We now have more donuts than we know what to do with!

I'm sure we'll think of something!

Pin It!

  2. Those look amazing! love me an apple fritter!

  3. I haven't had homemade donuts since my grandma used to make them!! Look delicious. :-)

  4. Mmmmm, they look great. My Mom used to make donuts for us occasionally, and I really miss them. I think I'll have to give them a try.
