Fried mini doughnuts are dipped in a chocolate glaze and topped with chocolate sprinkles. They’re perfect for a weekend breakfast or a fun dessert.
If you hang out on social media at all, you are probably very aware of the hashtag #tbt. If you’re not aware of that hastag, allow me to enlighten you.
#Tbt stands for “Throwback” Thursday. This Twitter and Instagram “holiday” compels people to share photos from an earlier time in their lives. If you do a quick quick search for this hashtag you’ll find photos of awesome 80’s fashion, old school toys – hello, Lite-Brite and old school candy!
I loved me some Hubba Bubba Bubble Jugs and Push Pops. I totally searched for Hubba Bubba Jugs a few weeks ago to discover they discontinued those jugs of powdery gum years ago. Girl ain’t gonna lie, if I found them online, they were most definitely going to be purchased.
While I’m definitely not going to be sharing 80’s photos of me with a sweet perm and ridiculously high bangs, I am all about sharing recipes that remind me of my childhood.
Earlier this month I posted a recipe for Honey Bun Cake which got me feeling all nostalgic about baking with my Nana. And I thought, why not share a couple #tbt recipes per month? I’ll be digging through family cookbooks and Nana’s recipe box to share some of our family faves with you, and I couldn’t be more excited about it.
While discussing this topic with Eric, he immediately grabbed his grandma’s cookbook and started flagging recipes that we needed to make and share. First on his list were his Grandma’s donuts – which happened to be a Crisco Donut Recipe from 1916 that was passed down from his great-grandmother.
This recipe seemed like a great place to start, so we rolled up our sleeves, made the dough, cut out shapes and did some deep frying! And because in Eric’s book a donut is not a donut unless it’s dipped in chocolate, that’s exactly what we did – and added some sprinkles of course!
