My family has started Zoom meetings, since we are spread across the country and due to the difficulty of traveling safely during the Covid19 shutdown.
We started talking about childhood memories. One of the most mentioned was traveling to Iowa to visit relatives when we were kids. One of the highlights of the trip was a trip to our great-uncle John’s bakery. Everybody’s favorite was the chocolate yeast-raised donuts with chocolate glaze.
Here is the result. In the center are the glazed donuts. Front left are the donut holes with powdered sugar. Front right is filled with raspberry jam and topped with whipped cream. Back right are filled with whipped cream topped with the chocolate glaze.
The flavor and texture was checked by my best helper.
Last week, we made cake donuts, which were pretty good too.
I think Uncle John is smiling right now.
