It's difficult to resist the temptation of a warm, freshly made donut served with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate, especially now that end of the year has brought back cold temperatures. A few days ago I decided to prepare some delicious donuts for my son and his friends. I wanted to make donuts that included a touch of fall and thought it would be fun to add color to the frosting and fall colored sprinkles. I hope you like them. MORE + LESS -

  • 1
    Mix the baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl. Add the two eggs and keep mixing. Now add the milk, vanilla and unsalted butter and mix until is has an even consistency. Add the 3 cups of Gold Medal flour and mix lightly with a spatula until the mixture is sticky.
  • 2
    Sprinkle a clean surface with flour to knead. Place the mixture on the surface and add a little more flour to prevent the dough from sticking. Use a rolling pin to spread the dough until it’s about half a centimeter high.
  • 3
    Use a donut cutter to cut out the circles in the dough. If you don't have a donut cutter, you can use a cup to cut out the donut and the lid to the vanilla extract to cut out the center.
  • 4
    Heat the oil in a pan and submerge the donuts. Let fry 3 to 4 minutes or until they've browned. Once read, let sit for a few minutes on paper towels.

    To make the frosting, mix the powdered sugar and milk in a bowl. Submerge the donuts in the mixture. Add the colorful sprinkles, shredded coconut, almonds or anything you like. I used fall colored sprinkles used for Halloween and Thanksgiving.
