Remember when I told you I was writing a cookbook all about Mini Donuts? Well it’s here! Ok, so not totally here. More like it’s off at the printers being made into a book…but I have the cover and the book in PDF form on my computer. So in my mind, it’s here.
I sent my family the cover yesterday and my Dad called me and said “Wow, so it’s like a real book? Is it going to be sold in actual stores??”. Then he proceeded to send the cover to everyone in his office bragging that his daughter wrote a book. So for me and my family, it’s really real now. I am a published author! And it feels pretty awesome.
It’s about the price of a bottle of wine (or in my Mama’s case, 2 liters of her cheap-o wine), but the sugar high will last you much longer than your wine headache.
About 90% of the recipes in the book are baked. I used my handy dandy donut maker, but you could also use a donut pan — and each recipe has instructions for both. I like the texture better out of a electric donut maker, but that’s just me. Either will work.
The remaining 10% of donuts are fried. Deep fried. And of course then covered in sugary icing.
I know I wasn’t here as much as I should have been, but just think…every day that a post didn’t go up, you could have found me throwing donuts into coffee, making midnight runs to Wal-Mart to buy 2 pounds of sprinkles, or cleaning dishes for what felt like the 2203423 billionth time.
It was all worth it and I am so proud to have finished! Thank you for sticking with me throughout the writing of my very first cookbook.
