Time to make the donuts

Tiger loves donuts! My hubby thought it would be funny to sneak "donut maker" on to her Christmas list. Well, when she saw it she insisted on getting one "if they are invented yet" she said!

So I found one of these at a kitchen gadget store:

It's basically just for dropping pancake batter but it did have "donut maker" on the box also, she was all excited. It included what looked like and easy recipe for regular donuts. All you have to do is mix the batter, put it in the contraption and "release rings of batter into hot oil"

Well this is the closest to a ring we got:

The dough just seemed to have a mind of it's own and take on random shapes. It also broke off into smaller pieces and we had all those turds you see around the edges.
Here are a couple more of the random shapes we got.

We tried again the next day and ended up with a seahorse, a dinosaur and one that was a little obscene! lol
I thought they tasted good though. Skowt didn't think they tasted like donuts. Whatever.

Awww poor thing. That was a great idea, sorry it flopped. Maybe the batter needs to be a little thicker? Just a suggestion.

You could take those canned biscuits and fry those and add powdered sugar...Yummo!

interesting donuts! Sorry the maker didn't work as expected. But I bet you had fun trying to figure it out.
