Last week was the Carnival week. Which for some people means dressing up and putting on masks and going out, while for me it means eating donuts. Lots of donuts. I ate 10 of them in four days, which is my personal record. I haven't gotten fat yet. YET.
At first I wanted to make donuts myself and that thought came into my head while I was reading a magazine which usually has recipes in it. It was a donut themed magazine. You would expect a recipe for donuts in it, wouldn't you?
So did I, but I didn't find one. Well actually I did, but it only listed the ingredients and looked like this:
1. Make the dough.
2. Cut it into circles.
After seeing this AMAZING recipe that a reader has sent in (seriously, why did they even publish that?! If I knew how to make the dough, and how to fry them I wouldn't need the recipe anyway...), I gave up because I wasn't in the mood to search for a good recipe and to waste huge amounts of oil just to fry a few donuts, without the guarantee that they'll taste good. Apart from that, I'm not ready for using yeast in my recipes and failing at it yet. It'll have to wait until next year.
Until then, I guess I'll be eating the bought ones. They are so good! Or maybe I should stop eating them since I already ate 10 times more donuts that I usually eat in a month, so I should eat the next one in... December. Now that's a long time without donuts. I'll have to think about that.
