Donuts and a Give Away

I was reading one of my favourite blogs this morning and found a lovely surprise, a give away for not one but three Babycakes Mini Treat Makers! Yep, that's right Pioneer Women is offering up 3 sets of 3 Babycakes Mini Treat Makers. All you need to do is leave a comment about your favourite donut...which is what lead to this post!

My Favourite Donut would have to be my grandma's old fashion drop donut. As a kid I made these donuts with many family members and everyone has a different way of finishing them. I have only them with my kids a few times but they always start with the same recipe.

Grandma Grace's Drop Donut Recipe

The picture above is my grandma's original hand written recipe, given to my mom the year I was born, 1978. I love that I have this and continue to use it every time I make donuts.

2 eggs
1 cup sugar
3 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1 tsp lemon (hot necessary)

Mix & drop batter from spoon into hot grease. Have thin icing* ready to dip each one as soon as removed from grease.

*Thin icing is refering to powder sugar mixed with a little milk to make a thin paste.
