Blizzard Juno has hit New England. No work or school for my guys, and fingers crossed, the power outages seemed to be limited, so I tempted fate and decided to bake a snow day treat. Donuts sounded good to me, and I had this recipe printed and ready to go.
No changes at all, except to double the amount of cinnamon sugar at the end. I'd rather have more than less and have to mix more mid coating. The excess I save in a spice jar with a shaker lid for sprinkling on buttered toast.
These didn't last long. I always think, I should double the recipe, don't, and then regret it LOL Thanks so much to Baker Bettie for the recipe and making our snow day just a little bit tastier :)
