Ok, so my kids enjoy donuts and so does my husband for that matter. Heck, I think everyone likes donuts now and then. The thing is they are like $6.99 a dozen (or more) and I have to drive 25 minutes one way to get them. I can't do that on a regular basis, but I can make them at home for a fraction of the cost and have them whenever I want.
Donuts take time to make and if you're going to heat up a big pot of hot oil you might as well get as much use out of it as you can. Make up a double, or triple, recipe and have delicious donuts anytime you want. How can you do that? I freeze them. Yup, I freeze them. And you know what? They turn out almost as good as fresh when they are defrosted. It's an easy quick fix and it makes everyone's tummy happy.
Would you like to freeze donuts too? I can help you with that.
Make your donuts from whatever recipe you like. I use several different donut recipes, depending on what kind of donut we want. I think raised donuts, Apple Fritters and cake donuts all freeze and defrost well.
To defrost, take them out the night before and pop them into the counter, or microwave for a few seconds or pop into a toaster oven for a minute or so on bake. It all just depends on if you want it hot or if you want it room temperature.
So there you have it. Make up a big batch of donuts (at least a double batch) and freeze those babies for later. Your family will thank you!
