We used this donut recipe and this glaze recipe.

The 2yo insisted on being in the middle of it all, and he was sooo helpful.
Thankfully the 8yo is finally starting to be a bit on the helpful side (instead of just asking which ingredients he can eat)!
Then - cooking time! This is where a super-expensive culinary degree obviously paid off:
That's right - burned beyond recognition. But let's blame the candy thermometer (which is obviously measuring low and is now in the trash!).
The not-too-burned ones were pretty good. I should know - I tried one and ended up spending the morning good and sick because of it! (Just can't handle the sugar.)
But it was a fun experiment, and I'm looking forward to trying again!
|The best of the lot.|
