First batch of donuts ever
Made my first donuts today! I used a msh.potato donut recipe, the kind my Mom used to make. There was flour everywhere, ha. Do you know how hard it is to find a donut cutter? One store actually had one but it was 2" round and cost $6. No thanks. So I used a 3" round cookie cutter I had and a little crystal toothpick holder to cut out the center hole. Mom says a pop bottle works too, but I didn't have one of those.
They look just like Mom's. Don't remember how hers tasted but these are pretty darn good. The first ones I rolled the dough out a little too thin. I think those donuts will get hard much quicker. Oh well, that's how you learn. Do you think if I put them in a plastic container with a lid it will be ok? or will they get soggy? I'm thinking they will end up dunkin' donuts (hard) if I don't.
