He wouldn't have given us Grandmother's."
~ Linda Henley
She asks every morning for one
and every morning I say No...
I found a recipe for the two
of us to follow...I am a grandmother
so it's in my job description....
and we set to work.
Everyone should have a donut
at least once in a lifetime. xx
2 packages yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 1/2 cups milk, scalded and cooled to lukewarm
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup coconut oil
5 cups all - purpose flour
Dissolve yeast in warm water until bubbly, about 10 minutes.
Add sugar, milk, salt , eggs, and oil. Mix well. Slowly add flour
mixing well. Knead until smooth. Cover and let rise until double,
about 1-11/2 hours.
Roll 1/2 inch thick and cut out donuts [I used a biscuit cutter and the top to a spice bottle].
Let rise 30 minutes.
Heat oil to 350 degrees. Fry in small batches, turning to brown both sides.
Dip in icing:
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2-4 tablespoons hot water.
Mix well until smooth.
