Here is my project for today's hop. I created a digital scrapbook layout featuring my Grandma Bernie and a donut recipe from her recipe box that I inherited when she moved into a nursing home.
Here is what the journaling on the page reads:
There is something sacrilegious about having my Grandma, Father Paul’s donut recipe and Homer Simpson on the same scrapbook layout, but who loves donuts more than Homer?
This is my favorite picture of me and Grandma Bernie. It was taken at my surprise 40th birthday party.
Grandma Bernie worked for a long time as the secretary to the priests at the Retreat Center of the Basilica of Our Lady Of Consolation in Carey, Ohio. Father Paul was one of the priests there.
When I inherited Grandma’s recipe box, this recipe for Father Paul’s Donuts was in there. What I love most is that is in Grandma’s handwriting.
In case you can't read the recipe, here it is:
Father Paul's Donuts
Makes 10 dozen
6 3/4 lbs Gold Medal Flour
1 lb Crisco, melted
1 tbsp Salt
9 pkgs Yeast, dissolved
3/4 lb Sugar
Enough water to make a soft dough
Mix ingredients as for sweet rolls.
Knead A LOT
Fry 395* in deep fat.
Just like Homer, I love donuts too! I'm sure I won't ever need a recipe for them that makes 10 dozen but it is a great thing to have.
I tend to be the lazy cook who makes donuts using store bought biscuits-in-a-can. You know the ones I mean, the kind you unwrap the label and whack on the counter to get open. Just heat your oil, whack open a can, cut the biscuits in quarters (for donut hole sized donuts) and fry til a nice golden brown. Then just drizzle with a glaze made of powdered sugar and milk (or use lemon juice instead for a sweet-tart glaze) or if you want it even easier just shake the donuts in a paper bag with some sugar and cinnamon or powdered sugar. OMGoodness are they good! Eat warm right from the bag, snuggled up with the family.
Now that your mouth is watering and you are thinking something like this...
