Happy Donuts

I was looking over my archives when i realized that it’s been ages since i mucked about with yeasted dough.

I guess i was somewhat put off by the labour and time intensive effort involved.

Between all that kneading, rising, and re- rising, yeasted breads are definitely something i would never attempt for breakfast on a weekday morning.

But it’s a happy, sunny Sunday today. I jumped at this opportunity to make doughnuts, a classic favourite in this household.

Especially when they are dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with colours.

And this green one is just for u, St. Pat’s, cause your big day is just around the corner!
