Growing up in our household was a joyous time for me as a kid, my mom worked but, she spent most of her time in the kitchen when she wasn’t working. I can remember sitting at the table with my sister and brother waiting on my mom to finish making doughnuts for us. The smell when she fried them was unbelievable, she would make glaze and, she would shake some in sugar and cinnamon because that’s the way my brother preferred them.
The other day I decided to try and make these for my family, the last time I made homemade doughnuts for my kids, they were very young, but they can remember me making them. So, I made the doughnuts, and my husband and granddaughter loved them, even my oldest son came by and snatched two of them, I swear that guy has radar. The one thing I am going to do the next time I make these is to double the recipe because this recipe only made twelve and in my house twelve just isn’t enough. So, if you need a bigger batch just double up.
After making the doughnuts, I taste them, and I was very pleased with the outcome, the smell, and the taste of the dough was delightful I could have eaten 3 or four, but with only twelve of them I had to leave some for the family.
Below is the video of how I made the doughnuts and the icing, view the video and the recipe below, let me know what you think! After all its time to make the doughnuts.
