Snow days call for donuts. At least that is what I decided. This quick recipe I found doesn’t call for milk (which we didn’t have) and isn’t time or energy intensive.
I got the recipe here. Ingredient list below! The original recipe calls for cognac or brandy which we skipped.
- 1 packet dry active yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 1/2 tablespoons oil + more for frying
- 1/2 teaspoons salt
- zest of 1 lemon (if you’re not into a lemony flavor than skip this because the lemon was way more noticeable than I thought it would be)
You just mix everything together in a plastic bag and then put the bag in a bowl of warm water. Yeah, I know, it sounds weird. But then an hour later you have fluffy dough!
We dressed our donuts in powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, and a powdered sugar-milk glaze.
Yum! Go forth and donut.
