A Recipe for Donuts

This recipe makes 12 donuts, just enough for a pan, but there are enough crumbs and icing to make up to eighteen.  Eighteen is how many donuts I need, so those measurements are in parentheses at the end of the line.  I didn’t want you to have to buy an odd pan, though! And twelve […]
