 Hello everyone...after a whole month of non blogging..I missed you, I missed my blog, I missed every good comment one of you once left me...I MISSED YOU GUYS.
This post was born today, a baby post....after a really bad week, I decided to have some fun in the week-end
especially that it is a long one.
And yes, you read the title correctly,,I made some doughnuts, no big deal but the fun is I made some lollies out of the left over dough( the rounded pieces in the middle)
                                                               3/4 cup luke warm milk
                                                               2 1/2 TS melted butter
                                                                           1 egg  
                                                              2 1/2 ts active dry yeast
                                                                  1/4 cup fine sugar
                                                                           1/2 ts salt
                                                              3 to 3 1/4 cups of AP flour

                                                                        The Glaze
