Homemade Doughnuts Or How to Be a Good Wife

Posted by Picasa

Update: I got the recipe from Randi. I followed it fairly closely but I had to dissolve the yeast in the warm milk directly intead of adding it to the flour because the yeast here doesn't dissolve easily, even in a liquid. And I used 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil instead of 1/2 cup of shortening. Can't buy shortening here.


  1. Yum!
    My husband would be happy. :-)
    Hannah, your posts are all coming out down at the bottom of your page, for me.

  2. You made donuts? Wow! I'm lost for words....are they difficult to make? You should post the recipe.

  3. You good wife, you! Look how happy thay hubby is!

    I would be too with homemade doughnuts in front of me!

  4. Julana, Are you using IE? I think I still have a problem in IE. I'll try to fix it.

    There not terribly difficult, you just have to wait for them to rise. I got the recipe from another great blogger, Randi. I changed her recipe a little. I dissolved the yeast in the milk first, and I added 1/4 cup of olive oil instead of 1/2 of shortening. and I made twists instead of "rounds."

    Sparrow, I'll have to bring you some doughnuts someday!

  5. Hannah,
    Yes, I'm using IE. Now the first two posts are at the top as they should be; then there is a white space, and the rest are dropped down.

  6. Good for you, Hannah. I love seeing you make your DH happy. And it will come back upon you (and already has with the comments listed here). Su San looks very happy with a cup in one hand and more donuts than he can eat in one setting. Well, more than he should eat. Keep up the good work
