Crispy and Creamy Donuts

Does your family have one of those traditions that is just genius?
mine does.
Twice a year our family watches the General Conference for the
 Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. And since it is broadcast on TV we stay home instead of going to church on those Sundays. And since we're all home together for the day, we might as well make an amazing meal (if you can call it that).
So we get up a little early and make...
 DOUGHNUTS!
(we usually have fruit and milk or juice with them and that way justify it as breakfast.) 


Its perfect. We can all watch Conference and eat donuts to our hearts desire.
Which is usually more than we should.


but they are sooo hard to resist.


Growing up we always used the same cake doughnut recipe (which is fabulous and I'll have to share next time), but the past few times we've been trying new recipes. These are the yeast doughnuts we made last time- and they were every bit as delicious as they look!



Jaime has also used this fabulous recipe

Which ever you try, I'm sure you'll enjoy!



here's where we link up!
