Donuts and more

Here is a delicious looking cake donut recipe.

I have an obsession with the idea of making donuts. I've never actually made them--I was completely planning to for Halloween this year but I was starting to experience the nausea phase of pregnancy and things that were really sweet I just couldn't we didn't make them. But I love these ones because you can bake them instead of fry them in oil! Someday. Someday I will make donuts and they will be amazing! :)

Also, go here to watch a video showing how to make Venetian Chocolate Amaretto Crepes. These look so delicious to me.

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup + 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract

Stir together flour and cocoa, mixing well. Set aside. Whisk together eggs, milk, sugar butter, and almond extract. Add flour mixture to egg mixture, whisking until smooth.

Pre-heat omelette pan over medium heat, when hot, pour in about 3 tbsp batter. Swirl to evenly coat pan. Cook until crepe has a dull finish. Carefully loosen edges then remove to a plate lined with paper towels. Repeat. And cool.

Makes 18-20 crepes
