New Years Day Tradition

While most people are starting diets, eating healthy and joining the gym, Jim and I are deep frying donuts.
These donuts are absolutely amazing. Be warned, they take time. They are yeast donuts and required to rise twice. They are so worth it.
Take a peek! I used my new camera (yeah, Jim rocks) for these pictures. I love this camera. I have no clue how to use it properly, yet it still takes great pictures. I can't wait to see what happens when I actually know how to use it.

The donuts on the second rise. I can't explain it, but I love this picture. I want to frame it!

First batch is out. We place the donuts on an upside down cooling rack over newspaper. This helps wick away the oil and prevents soggy donuts.


Time to make the donuts! (can anyone tell me what that is from because Jim must have said it 15 times that morning). Jim works on flipping batch #2


The surviving donuts, with glaze and sprinkles


Yummy January 1st breakfast


Anyone care to join us next year?
If you want some of your own, here is the recipe. We add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to the mix.

"Time to make the donuts" is the famous catchphrase of Fred the Baker (Dunking Donuts ad character from 1982 to 1997.)

Check out Fred_the_Baker (Wikipedia) for the details.

Just thought you'd like to know. {*grin*}

Thanks for your comment! You'll definitely need some warm cozy soups once you move back to Ohio. Good luck with the move!
