quasi baking fail

I came across this recipe a few weeks ago for baked donuts.  The photos looked wonderfully tempting.  Last night I decided to try it.  I got my (new) bread maker out and loaded the ingredients in.  I was buzzing around doing laundry and tidying up a bit – the machine started making a weird noise.  I checked on it and the kneading hook had come off its pedestal and was stuck in the ball of dough.  I stuck it back on and tried to get it going again.  And again, after a few turns, the hook came off again.  Grrr.

So I took the dough out, kneaded it a bit, then put it in a bowl in a warm place to rise.  I let it rise about an hour then carried on with the recipe.  They didn’t rise as much as I wanted, but I think that might have been because of the wonky bread maker macerating the dough.  Damn thing.

weirdly shaped, but tasty!

It made about a dozen and some holes.  I topped them with melted butter and dipped in cinnamon sugar.  Tasted just fine!

TerriBits - ha!

Next time I’ll try this recipe – I can mix the dough with my KitchenAid and not mess with that stupid break maker.

So while I was slaving over a hot oven, the rest of the pack was:

  1. Ha ha ha! Okay, I’m cracking up over the ending to this post! I’m sorry the bread maker went on the fritz, but doughnuts are sounding really good right now! I have a feeling they all woke up when the TerriBits were available for tasting, though!

  2. O hai, have I told you lately that we love you? I’ll have to make those and maybe Nick will still love me despite the depleted nookie & sleep levels…
