GUESS what…it’s almost HALLOWEEN….

I just love Halloween and in all seriousness I was the first to celebrate it with my family in the town we currently live in. Nobody knew what it was when I first moved here, they had heard about it, but that’s about it.  Even in Germany they celebrate it more than here and it’s just around the corner.

When I lived in the States I just became hooked on Halloween. I don’t think I will ever go a year without celebrating it.

Now 14 years later, we  have a lot of Halloween props and candy in the stores and it has finally settled in. I’m very happy about it and so is my daughter.

For the past 5 or 6 years my daughter has always had a Halloween party for her and her friends, they all dress up and do fun and scary stuff. They all love it and it gives me a great excuse to cook and bake crazy food.  So, …here we go

Makes 6 Doughnuts

Pre heat oven to 350° F

1 tsp. Baking Powder

1/4 tsp. Baking Soda

Method;

Sieve the first four ingredients very well together.

In an other bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.

Stir in to the flour mixture. DO NOT OVER MIX.

Grease your doughnut pan or oil spray. Divide the batter between the holes.

Bake for 8 – 10 minutes. Insert a tooth pick to test if they are done. If it comes out dry they are ready. Remove them from the oven. Let cool completely before icing.

For the icing I have used confectioners sugar with food colours and a  Halloween Sprinkle Mix.
The icing has to be thick or it will absorb into the doughnuts.

    Oh wow these look great! When I first moved to Germany 10 years ago, Halloween wasn’t as popular like it is today. I’m glad that my kids can experience it the way I did when I was growing up in Canada. They are still at an age where they still go trick or treating, but your idea of hosting a Halloween party for your daughter and her friends is just brilliant! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    I have everything but the Himalayan salt and buttermilk- so this looks pretty darn easy!!! DJ and I are such donut junkies, so after I take my nursing boards I will have to treat us by making these cute little guys. How in the world does every thing you make look so darn perfect? Thanks for the wonderful idea, Myra!! Happy (almost) Halloween!! Love this time of year!!!

        Yessss! But yet you wouldn’t think so based on how stinking cute they are. I even have the same exact pan you use, so I am seriously rewarding myself with these after boards. Stay tuned 🙂

I would love to hear from you...
