Happy New Year!!!

Over the past 600+ episodes, The Simpsons has taken us on an amazing journey involving music, science, and food to name a few concepts.

And what better way to start your week, then by discussing some of these concepts Monday morning?

So let’s get started this week by discussing one of Homer’s favourite foods, the donut.

 

Homer and donuts go back to the very first episode of The Simpsons, Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire (Season 01, Episode 01):

Over the past 600+ episodes, there are over a hundred additional images or references of Homer eating donuts.

But how do you make donuts?

So from the Food Network Canada, here is a recipe for “Canadian homemade doughnuts”:

 

Ingredients:

For the doughnuts:

  • 4 cup flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 stick (2 ounces, 1/4 cup or 4 tablespoons) of butter, melted
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • 3 eggs

For the optional cinnamon sugar coating:

  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup ground cinnamon

 

Recipe:

For the doughnuts:

1. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, whisk together the butter, buttermilk and eggs. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir well until combined and the mixture forms a dough.

2. On a floured surface roll the dough until it’s about 1” thick. Cut out doughnuts using a 3” round cutter and then cut out the centers with a half inch round cutter.

3. Drop the doughnuts into the hot oil and fry until they are golden and float to the top. Flip and fry on both sides. Drain on paper towels.

For the optional cinnamon sugar coating:

1. Whisk together the sugar and cinnamon and toss the hot doughnuts in the mixture.

 

 

Now that we know how to make donuts (or doughnuts), be sure to come back next week when we continue our Monday morning musings.

  1. Golly, can’t say I thought about making 🍩’s from home (even with those mini 🍩 machines) when a trip to Krispy Kreme allows you to watch ’em being made ….. oh yeah, the new mini’s are only 90 calories each (be like Homer Simpson and eat the whole box full – mmmmm) 😉

    We have the Las Vegas Golden Knights 🍩 exclusive to local Krispy Kremes ….

    Krispy Kreme even offers up a free dozen 🍩’s each time the Las Vegas Golden Knights do a shut out (use your ticket stub and indulge!) ☺️

    That’s a lotta carbs I better walk off at CES tomorrow 😂

    My favourite Simpson’s 🍩 references are the Lard Lads at all of the Universal Studios Theme Parks (those are some Texas sized 🍩’s!)

  2. Sounds yummy Safi, but I’m too lazy to farm for donuts, so I’m definitely way too lazy to actually make real donuts. As a fellow Canadian, when the craving hits, I just head down to Timmie’s! 🤣

  7. When I saw this post’s title, saliva started to flow inside my mouth…

    … and then I noticed all the measures are in imperial units.

    Why? Oh why? 😥
