While on a quest to make donuts…. I stumbled upon a recipe online that I modified just a bit, It’s a must try! I hope that you find joy in donuts again using this recipe. They’re donuts are fantastic, they’re crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. It’s very versatile and for a donut, quite simple. This is a buttermilk donut recipe.
