autumnal goodies :: apple cider donuts

it all started with her birthday. you can see my little one in the background. recently turned 3. can't believe it! we'd been talking for a long while about what her cake should be. there were many ideas. most included chocolate chips. then we started to talk about Fall. and apple picking and how we always wanted to make apple cider donuts. and so. we decided this was our year. then she announced that for her birthday she would have donuts and ice cream. well. why not! far be it for me to deny a birthday girl her wish.
so, we made donuts! for the first time. and they were awesome! since then we also made some for the school bake sale. they were a hit there, too. which is great. i used this recipe from epicurious.com. now that i have made 3 batches of these bad boys, i think if i were to do donuts again, i would try a yeasted dough, but these were damm fine little dogs!
now the problem seems to be an addiction to deep frying. i have since amazed my children with my deep frying capabilities. my son thought i was a superhero after i turned a corn tortilla into 6 little tortilla chip triangles. i seriously think he thought i was a magician. then, of course we had to try some potato chips too. i think i'd better step away from the oil before i start to get fry crazy. anything could happen.

Homemade donuts sound amazing. Alas, I'm too afraid of deep frying to ever try it though . . .
