    Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:

    My husband can remember standing on a chair at the table to be tall enough to watch his Grandma make doughnuts. Unfortunately I can't find her recipe but this one is from a different German Grandma and sounds much easier than what he describes to me!

      These were amazing! They were soft on the inside and a lovely crispness on the outside. My first batch didn't turn out too well because I dropped too big a spoonful and they ended up being huge blobs which looked cooked on the outside but were raw on the inside. I didnt realise this until after I'd finished and poked them with a toothpick. Anyways I threw that batch away And made a new one using smaller spoonfuls and they turned out fantastic! Such a easy recipe, thank you so much!

      I created an account just to say how amazing these doughnuts are! My two-year old son asked for doughnuts for breakfast this morning. I was just going to make simple doughnuts from canned biscuits but we didn't have any canned biscuits. I found this recipe, and it's incredibly easy and oh-so delicious! The only change I made was substituting cinnamon for nutmeg because I'm not a fan of nutmeg and I didn't have any on hand. So yummy! A definite hit in my house for sure!
