“I came across the recipe for these wonderful raised doughnuts many years ago. I remember Mom making some similar to these. You can frost them with maple or chocolate glaze, then top with chopped nuts, jimmies, toasted coconut or sprinkles.” —Ann Sorgent, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin
Here's an old-fashioned recipe that's welcome at any meal. The pretty golden fritters are a perfect addition to a down-home breakfast or brunch in place of typical pancakes. You'll be amazed at how quickly they disappear. —Nelda Cronbaugh, Belle Plaine, Iowa
In later years, when Mother at long last retired her faithful old country stove, she moved to Florida. When grandchildren came to visit, she made them this Southern version of her Heartland fried cakes.
Meet the Cook: We have four boys - 13, 7, 6 and 5 - and these doughnuts never last long at our house. I like making them because I don't have to clean up a greasy mess.
