If you tell me there’s anything better than warm, homemade donuts, you’re lying. These little guys were a great way to start a lazy Sunday morning and not nearly as hard to make as they look. I used this recipe from the Los Angeles Times and they came out beautifully.
Pipe them out
Cut the (well-oiled) parchment paper into squares to make them easier to deal with
And slid them into the hot oil.
Let them cook for a while, flip them over and they magically become donuts!
Now it’s time for the fun part: dipping! We made a vanilla-bean glaze, a lemon glaze, and a chocolate glaze.
There were tons of sprinkles and dozens of sticky, messy fingers.
I made everyone wait and drool while I insisted on taking pictures for you.
And let me tell you,
They were incredible!
Almost more fun to make than they were to eat.
We made a bit of a mess, but about 15 minutes after this picture was taken almost every donut was gone.
Everyone went home very, very happy.
