I want it known that I made doughnuts today!!! (If you're curious I used THIS RECIPE but I swapped the strawberries for cranberries.) I have never, in my 32 years successfully fried anything. Ever. In fact, I've only unsuccessfully tried 2 or 3 times. But now I've made doughnuts. And they're not too shabby. I even fried some plan dough, sprinkled it with sugar and spread it with some vanilla honey butter (from some cinnamon roll thing I tried earlier in the week) and it was divine. My whole life will now be divided in 2 sections: B.D. and A.D. (before doughnuts and after doughnuts).
I'm going to celebrate with some fried dough.
