MOM'S RAISED DOUGHNUTS

Peggi Anne Tebben Recipe

By Peggi Anne Tebben cookiequeen

My Mom was the best baker I have ever known, along with Great Aunt Jane. Whether it was pies, breads, cakes, or.....yes, doughnuts. Even though they are fried, I classify that as a baking product because of the dough you use.

I stated somewhere before on here that my Mom never owned a cookbook. I lied! Well, actually, I forgot about this one. This recipe comes from a 1957 ROBIN HOOD COOKBOOK that was my Mom's. I still have it to this day & is the one I treasure the most. The rolls & loaves of bread & OH....the doughnuts she made from that cookbook! These simply melt in your mouth. It is ha
