Fly-By Post

Hey friends! Sorry to be MIA lately. I have been super-busy, and unfortunately not at my craft table. Had a major computer crash, then the landscaper "pruned" our cable line along with the bushes, taking out our internet for a few days. My days have been filled with family stuff, and enjoying the beginning of our summer break. I am, however, looking forward to the start of camp next week to give me some kid-free craft room time!

Until I have some time to get pics on my computer of my latest knitting and paper projects:


Want to come craft with me? Check out my Calendar Page for details on this month's "What to Do with Washi Tape?" class and "Stamp During Camp", a fun Friday morning quickie for you while your kids are having fun at camp.
Please come join me--I would love to make some projects with you! 


As you may or may not know, my son has food allergies to milk, egg, peanuts and tree nuts. That means that most bakery treats are homemade. We LOVE the recipes from Kelly Rudnicki, the Food Allergy Mama! Her Apple Haus doughnuts are the only real doughnuts my son has ever eaten. Have you ever made doughnuts? They are kind of a have to make the dough, roll and cut, then deep fry! We reserve them for a once- or twice-a-year treat. 

But then along came the Sunbeam Donut Maker! It has a nonstick surface and you "bake" the donuts. (I am switching from "doughnut" to "donut" to reflect the product's choice of spelling. Plus these are not real doughnuts, but still yummy). This can be a more frequent treat because it is so fast and easy. So I thought I would share my personal recipe for the donut maker. We enjoy the donuts plain, but you can fancy them up with a glaze and sprinkles, or shake them when warm in a paper bag with cinnamon and sugar. If you try these, let me know what you think!

"Donut Maker" Donuts
copyright 2012 by Jenny Ban

1-1/2 c. all purpose unbleached flour
1/2 c. sugar
1-1/2 t. baking powder
1 single-serve container applesauce
5 T. melted margarine (dairy-free)
3/4 c. vanilla soymilk
cinnamon to taste (LOTS!)
vanilla to taste

Preheat Donut Maker according to manufacturer's directions. In medium bowl, stir flour, sugar and baking powder together with wire whisk. Add applesauce, margarine, soymilk, cinnamon and vanilla to bowl. Whisk together until well mixed.

Spoon/pour batter into Donut Maker and bake per manufacturer's directions.

Coat with glaze or cinnamon sugar as you choose, or eat them plain! 

These donuts do come out more chewy/moist than a traditional donut, but we think they are a yummy breakfast treat!
