TRIED 'N' TRUE: A sweet doughnut for an after-school snack

When we were young, mother would fix doughnuts for an after-school snack. I’ve made this one and another that takes yeast and takes a while to rise.

They are so good when they are warm. Yum! Mom and I were talking about what we ate when we got home and before chores and homework. Sometimes Dad would be sitting at the table, and he had one doughnut in his hand and two on the plate. He would hide the rest to make us think he had eaten them all. There being five of us, there wasn’t enough to go around. Boy were we mad! Thanks, Mom.


2 cups Bisquick

1⁄4 cup sugar

1⁄3 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg

1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon

1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg

• Mix together well.

• Roll out and make donuts (you can use a glass and a thimble for the hole. Mom always used these.)

• Deep fry.

• Roll in cinnamon and sugar, or powdered sugar. You can also use icing.
