As a special treat in winter, my parents would make a double batch of these doughnuts to welcome us six kids home from school. This recipe from my great-aunt has been handed down through the generations.
Jill Shramek of Powell, Wyoming adapted a recipe from her Czechoslovakian in-laws to make the dough for these sweet treats in her bread machine. "They are the best baked doughnuts you'll ever eat," she promises. "They're tender and terrific."
