HAPPY "National Donut Day"

Now here is a holiday I can really get into!!!!! Celebrated on the first Friday each June, "National Donut Day" was originally celebrated in a Salvation Army event held in 1938. This event was held to raise money to help the needy and to honor the the women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I.  

Mmmmmmmm! DONUTS!!!!!

When my kids were little, I used to make homemade donuts. The recipe was very simple:
2 cups Bisquick
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
2 eggs
2 tbsp. milk

I would mix them, cut them, fry them in oil, drain them on a paper towel, then shake them in a bag with sugar to coat. They were so delicious when eaten while still warm.

My granddaughter Averi LOVES LOVES LOVES "Sprinkle Donuts"!!! Her sister Allison's favorite is a chocolate glazed, custard filled donut. And what does Grandma like best? A cake donut with chocolate icing & nuts on top. Mmmmmmmmm!
