last week i was minding my own beezwax when i stumbled upon THIS and THIS. before i could stop myself amazon one-click had its way with me and a few days later this donut pan landed on my front doorstep.
i didn't use either of those recipes. THIS is the recipe i used. more or less. except i partially melted the butter, used 1 c. of cake flour, mixed brown & white sugar, and used 1/2 c. of milk curdled with 1 T lemon juice. i swear everything else is virtually identical.
Then of course i needed icing. and i thought maple browned butter sounded v. good. indecent really. and earlier in the morning i happened to have some crumbled bacon leftover. it was a total accident what happened next. i would never actually make something so decadent intentionally.
half got the bacon treatment and the other half didn't. mindreader that i am i know you're doing the math and wondering where the other 2 donuts are. i am almost positive that my neighbor popped in and took 2. donuts don't just disappear. in highland park. on a saturday morning. in november. they just don't. whatever.
don't even think about coming over during my nap and trying to steal. i will fight tooth and nail for those donuts. and you will totally lose. no one wants to feel like a loser on a pretty sunny saturday. do they?
i saved you the icing bowl.
vera & i are back in business since one of you told me about acorn tv. i also started watching doc martin which another of you told me about. and prime suspect looked good because who doesn't love helen mirren. i'm set! thanks for your help. i guess i could part with one of my donuts...you're worth it!
