National Donut Day!
Best Donut Recipe
After trying baked donuts, I was determined to find a real donut recipe. “REAL” meaning a recipe that includes yeast and the donuts are FRIED ! Keep in mind this is not a staple, however, this recipe is KID APPROVED. I made 12 minus my one donut, these two ate the remaining 11 donuts. These will definitely be an occasional treat for the kids.
I also need to invest in a donut cutter. It never fails I always try a new recipe and then find one ingredient missing. My go-to trick for no buttermilk is to add 1 TBSP of vinegar to 1 cup of milk and let it set. I decided to make 6 glazed donuts + holes and 6 cinnamon sugar + holes.
- 1tablespoon dry active yeast
- 1⁄2cup warm water
- 1⁄2cup buttermilk
- 3tablespoons shortening, melted (DO NOT use oil)
- 3tablespoons sugar
- 2 1⁄2-3cups flour
