If life gives you a Donut Maker....

...MAKE DONUTS!

One of my favorite gifts I gave Eric, and I think one of his favorite gifts was a Donut Maker. Eric loves donuts. He always used to say he wanted our wedding cake to be a tower of donuts frosted to look like a real cake. Then when it was time to cut the cake, he would just reach in and pull out a donut. Well his idea didn't win.

This year when I was looking for Christmas presents I found this donut maker and knew I had to get it. In case anyone is curious, I got it from abcdistributing.com. I first found this site when I found the butterflies for Alex's room. And what can I say, I got many many Christmas presents for family from here this year, all of which they love.
So after Christmas we had to try it out. And it was a success. They definitely are best when they are warm, and we dipped them in some glaze (powdered sugar, milk and vanilla) and they were so so good.

  1. I want one!!

    I have been making mine the "hillbilly" way.

    Ok, maybe that's not what it's called but I am stuck on that southern thANG now.

    I take biscuits and form a hole in the middle then I drop them in the hot oil. VOILA! Donuts

    We lather chocolate frosting on them and sometimes we make a powdered sugar/milk glaze

    MMM! Now I want some.

  14. Hi! I got one of these for my brother-in-law for Christmas but his didn't come with any instructions or recipe or anything. The company is VERY hard to get a hold of. I was looking on line to see if I could find it and I found your blog. I was wondering if there is a chance if you could scan the paperwork that it came with and email it to me? foxx5@cox.net Thanks!
