Snowed in = Doughnuts!

Oh Lord.  I did it.  I caved into my boys demands for doughnuts.  Except, it is snowing and blowing outside and I am not leaving the house.  What to do?  Homemade doughnuts!  Warm, crunchy comfort-foody doughnuts.  Again, Oh Lord.
     A seriously easy recipe :
Beat together:  1 cup sugar
                        2 eggs
                      1 cup milk
                      1 tsp. vanilla ( I did 1/2 as almond extract, ran out of vanilla)

add :  3 cups flour
         dash of salt
         2 tsp. baking powder
         sprinkle of cinnamon, if you fancy

Mix together and drop by teaspoon into hot oil.  Fry em up until golden brown and drain them.  Then top it off by rolling in cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar.

Frying, something I almost never do, I forgot how fast it goes!

Crunchy, warm comfort!

Kid-tested!  Vladdie stole this one off the counter!
