"These were delicious and my 6 year old grandaughter helped me make them on her birthday morning!. I only had white whole wheat flour and so, made my own biscuit mix with it using butter, baking powder, salt and a bit of sugar. She had fun brushing the warm donuts with the melted butter and rolling them in sugar. These have a texture like light scones, the flavor was very nice with freshly ground nutmeg!"
"These are delicious. Very much like a fluffy scone."
