I doubt she is holding you down and force feeding you sweets.  :P Maybe you need to have a new policy of parking a mile away from the bakery for every item you plan on purchasing.  :lol:

I go to the gym and workout  before I go there.  :lol:

 

Once the initial "OMYGOD!ICANEATANYTHINGINTHISPLACEIWANT!!" wore off,

I have been more controlled. I really do not get sweets every time I am there. Honest. 

 

The thing is, she is very sweet and makes special things for everyone--how can you say no when it is a gift?

 

I am thinking that would be very rude and I was raised to be polite. (see how I justify that carrot cake walnut muffin with cream cheese frosting last week? ) ;)

 

I mean just take a look at what she is holding...and that smile. She is not easy to say "no" to. (and yes, she is one of us)

Okay, so I finally got around to my donuts. (Pictures will be whenever the heck my phone gets around to uploading them. <_<)

 

The dough came together beautifully in a large ball of sticky goo. It gets rolled out in snakes like play doh, only in greased plastic wrap. Too stick for much else and unless you want to grease your counter and yourself enough to enter a pig wrastlin' contest, I suggest following the directions and sticking with the plastic wrap. It is pretty tricky at first, but I got the hang of it by the end. You roll it into snake, then cut it up. I made mine all into holes. I find the idea of bothering to shape it into actual donut rings pointless and stupid. Waste of time and energy when I could be getting them into me faster. Then just let them raise half an hour, fry 1 minute each side (mine were pretty lumpy and self flipped every few seconds about half the time :ph34r:) then throw into the glaze. Bam. Donuts!

 

So I fried 8 at a time, because that is what reasonably fit in my deep fryer without over crowding it. The first 8 were gone before they were anything approaching cool enough for a sane person to eat. So were the second 8. Remember how I said I could eat them til I was sick? Yeah... apparently being 35 doesn't make you smart enough not to do stupid stuff like that. :wacko: So worth it. They were every bit as amazing and divine and perfect as when she made them. I almost cried a little at my first one... then I just started popping them in like a crazy person. :lol:

 

So again, light... fluffy... bakery style donuts that melt in your mouth and will make you forget gluten ever existed. Hmmmm.... maybe another trip to the kitchen is in order before bed. Just. One. More. I swear. ^_^

Holy crapola! My phone uploaded pictures to photobucket before Christmas or the apocalypse. A miracle!

 

This is the dough. Sticky, but comes together in a ball like yeast dough should. After this, I don't need any stupid excuses about blah blah blah gluten free this that whatever. Dough. Ball. My yeast doughs can be a ball or get out of my kitchen.

This is what the dough looks like all rolled out as a snake. I obviously am not a pro.

This is how many it made, 87 total donut holes.

And of course, because it is what everyone wants to see. Food porn at its finest. This is what a perfect donut hole looks like right before I snatch it and stuff it in my face.
