|Cutting the donuts|
I recently decided to cultivate a nice sourdough starter and use that in lieu of any dry yeast in recipes. Rather than trying to catch wild yeast or let yeast go wild, I opted for the easy route and just bought some from King Arthur Flour. The starter has been living nicely in the fridge and made a great start to these donuts.

This recipe is almost too easy. Fortunately I have friends nearby I was able to unload a half dozen of these on but that still left us A LOT and we had no problem scarfing them down. As the occasional treat though it's not that bad. And I like being able to provide a special something on the weekend. It helps make the house, even in the disarray we are still living in (still waiting on lead abatement), feel more like a home.
