Hi, my name is Aimee and I love donuts. I love cooking them, eating them, and even sharing them. I am obsessed. I love making the dough, I love shaping them, I love frying them. I just love donuts. I love creating new frostings and flavors. I love donuts. Did I say how much I love donuts? Well, if you knew me you would know that my pants are a little tight right now because I love donuts too much!
Anyways, my older kids had a retreat this weekend, so my excuse to make donuts again was to send some with them (which I did).
I made chocolate long johns, chocolate with sprinkles, strawberry (my absolute favorite), and S’mores! Wow, those were so rich and delicious.
One thing though that I did different this time around is add vanilla beans to my dough. Holy yum. I have now changed my official recipe to include this. What a difference it makes to the overall flavor of the donut itself.
I bought these vanilla beans online (Premium Bourbon-Madagascar Vanilla Beans – 16 beans). I was paying about $10 in the grocery store for two beans in a jar, but online these are about $15 shipped, and you get 16 beans). They are good too! So worth the money, now I have to find something else to make with them, I can’t eat any more donuts!!!!
