So, on today's episode of "I'm bored. I know...let's bake something", We made homemade donuts. I found the cutest little donut pan at Goodwill a year or so ago, so we experimented with doughnuts that were baked rather than deep fried. The result...meh. They pretty much had the taste/consistency of a muffin. But, you don't usually add sprinkles to muffins, so that was a bit of a bonus.
Verdict? If your kids are easy to fool (mine are not) you might be able to convince them these are real donuts (I could not). But, they're fun anyway!
