Farm Stand Buttermilk Doughnuts

Farm Stand Buttermilk Doughnuts

.

I recently made Crispy Fried Chicken as well as French Fries. If I’m doing all this frying, I might as well make some doughnuts, right?  Do you say donuts or doughnuts? I usually type donuts because it’s faster. Whatever you say, there’s no mistake that they are hands down one of my most favorite foods. I ate six donuts in less than 15 minutes when I was pregnant. True story.

My birthday is coming up, which means I’m rushing to knock stuff off my 31 comes before 32 list. AHHH!!  I still have a cleanse to do! And a fondue party in the summer?! WHAT?!  Last weekend I knocked off #2. Make donuts from scratch! I had Cooper help me measure out the dry ingredients early in the morning and almost had a heart attack when he dropped the large bowl of flour on the kitchen floor. Yikes.
