    Gaurdian Gabriel's Note:

    Try these you won't be sorry, these are my famous homemade donuts. They are quick and easy to make and taste incredible . Wonderful, plain, or rolled in white sugar, powdered sugar or cocoa and utterly delicious when drizzled with a simple vanilla glaze.

      My daughters and I chose to make 2.5" donut holes, since I was inept in successfully making a typical donut shape with a hole in the center (LOL!). The dough was very easy to make and the donuts were light and fluffy. I personally liked them coated in cinnamon sugar where as my one daughter preferred them with confectioner's sugar. Its tough to eat just one. As an after thought, we could have coated them with colored sugar for Easter, as the donuts are the size of eggs. Thanks for posting! Made for the Spring 2009 PAC.
