donut daze

Every Sunday morning I'd dart downstairs anticipating my Uncle Danny's delivered weekly dozen of creme-filled, cinnamon sugar, glazed and sprinkled goodies. Yep, the good old days when I could throw back fried dough and creamy sugar with zero guilt and outrageous resulting energy. Sugar is at the bottom of my food pyramid these days and I'm looking for ways to make old favorites appealing again.

I've attempted to buy a donut pan for a long time now, every time I pick it up I put it down before I get to the register. Thinking its one of those things you only use once. Buying this thing felt right today and I'm quite pleased with my circular sweets that just popped out of it. Seriously though, hot out of the oven, you'll be glazed and confused as to why you'd ever eat 'em fried again.
