You can find the recipe at Our Best Bites. Let me point out first - they taste amazing! But here is how mine looked:
More like apple fritters (or just a big mess) than donuts. Sigh. Next time I'm going to remember I have the oddball looking contraption from grandma that dad tells me is for donut dough and try that instead because I obviously cannot cut donuts. Seriously follow the link above to the original recipe for the cutest donuts you have ever seen!
The boys enjoyed drinking the leftover apple cider - yummy! Grant's first time with cup and straw (no lid) made mommy a bit nervous though.
As always my boys are always willing to help. In fact, this has become a new Wednesday afternoon scheduled activity that they look forward too. They help mommy with a new recipe right after lunch and before nap time. If all goes well there is a little pre-nap treat :)
So, after pulling them out of the freezer I was able to cut them and they looked really good.
But, they would not pull off the clear wrap and ended up like this:
So, I just divided the dough and put lumps in the hot oil to make these:
I am not sure - maybe I needed to leave them in the freezer longer, or maybe I should have lightly greased the plastic wrap before putting the dough on. Not sure - we'll chalk this one up to operator malfunction. The boys sure liked them - in fact they ate their pieces so fast I didn't even get a picture!
