Our breakfast treat

Since my waffle iron broke, Saturday mornings have become a special-request breakfast day, a kind of what-can-we-think-up-next sort of thing. We’ve done Everything Bagels…our own version of the ones they serve at the cafe of the church we attended when we lived in Central Florida…..which includes scrambled eggs, bacon, tomato, green onions, and cream cheese all thrown between everything bagels…….delicious! We’ve had pancakes, plain and with fruit or chocolate chips mixed in (or both). We’ve had omelets. I promised the kids donuts for breakfast today. Yes, they were thrilled! Little did they know I had ‘healthy’ donuts in mind. 😉

I followed a recipe from here, where I have found several yummy things lately. I even substituted almond milk and vegan butter for regular, so they would be diet-friendly for Corbin and Emma. We will have to tweak the oil temperature next time we make them, as they turned out a little too dark. I’m not sure if the oil was too hot, or something that just occurred to me, could that be from the above-mentioned substitutions? Anyway, they turned out quite good….the kids loved them….but I want to improve their color and crispiness (maybe a little softer). I served them with powdered sugar and chocolate icing on the side…..letting the kids choose their topping……and milk and coffee for drinks.
Here are some photos of my efforts.

I think the donut holes were actually my favorites!
