Homer Price Homemade Doughnuts
We are currently reading "Homer Price". The kids can't wait every day to dive into some of Homer's crazy adventures. If you haven't heard of this book, read it, or read it with your children I highly recommend it!
Now, we are not usually a very "hands-on" homeschooling family. I have a lot of ideas for fun things to do with the kids, but we rarely do them. At this stage in our family my daily goal is to keep everyone fed, clothed, rested, and up to date with schoolwork.
But today we actually carved out some time to make homemade doughnuts - in honor of Homer Price. We followed *this recipe (cut it in half to make about 3 dozen doughnuts plus doughnut holes) and had great success with it.
*The recipe calls for packets of yeast. If you buy yours in bulk, like we do, you will want to know that 1 packet of yeast = 2 1/4 tsp.
Make sure your self-control has come along for the ride or you may eat more than a couple of these babies! Not that I have any experience with my self-control flying the coop... ;)
