life’s a little better with donuts

i saw a recipe on pinterest that i couldn’t resist – donut holes! i have been wanting to make donut holes for ages, but always thought they would be too complicated. so when i saw this recipe claiming they took only 15 minutes, i had to give it a try! it probably took about 30 minutes in reality, but still much easier than i would have thought. i fried them on the stove instead of getting out the deep fryer, so i didn’t have a way of knowing the temperature of the oil. it was definitely too hot when i started them just above medium, so the first few cooked too much on the outside and didn’t quite cook fully inside. i lowered the stove to medium and that did the trick – it took probably about 3 minutes for them to get golden brown and cooked fully in the middle. i coated some with cinnamon and sugar, and some with powdered sugar. i didn’t wait long enough for the powdered sugar ones – they were still too warm, so the powdered sugar started to liquify and they ended up a little goopy. still delicious, though!

the final product! coated with cinnamon and sugar, and powdered sugar

About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
