Hello, We're back with a donuts recipe! I tried lots of combinations of ingredients to get a texture that I was satisfied with. I find this one not bad at all! These are oven-baked donuts, so there isn't that fat feeling you can get with a fried donut, I find it better.
I find donuts in general quite disgusting when they are too fatty. Of course, the icing gives an extra touch of sugar, so you can choose not to add it but it will take a little something off all the same. With these proportions you will have 12 plump donuts! :)
Did you know?: Today, the first Friday of June, and it's National Donut Day! This tradition dates from 1938, straight from the United States. It was the Salvation Army in Chicago that created this day to honor the women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I. The tradition has continued over the years even though few people know the origin of National Donut Day. Shortly after the United States entered World War I in 1917, the Salvation Army sent a fact-finding mission to France. The mission concluded that the needs of the enlisted men in the United States could be met through canteens / social centers called "huts" which could serve baked goods, provide writing supplies and stamps, and provide a service. mending of clothing.
Typically, six staff per hut would include four female volunteers who could “mother” the boys. These huts were established by the Salvation Army in the United States near army training centers. About 250 Salvation Army volunteers went to France. Because of the difficulties of providing freshly baked goods from huts established in abandoned buildings near to the front lines, the two Salvation Army volunteers (Ensign Margaret Sheldon and Adjutant Helen Purviance) came up with the idea of providing doughnuts. These are reported to have been an "instant hit", and "soon many soldiers were visiting The Salvation Army huts". Margaret Sheldon wrote of one busy day: "Today I made 22 pies, 300 doughnuts, 700 cups of coffee."
In the Second World War, Red Cross Volunteers also distributed doughnuts, and it became routine to refer to the Red Cross girls as Doughnut Dollies as well.
