Homemade Doughnuts.

Last weekend, I had the urge to whip up this recipe that I found here a while back. We hardly ever eat doughnuts, so when we do, we like to do it right (Doughnut Plant, anyone?)

Truly, they're pretty easy, and they turn out beautifully. They're also really fun to make with someone else ("Look at us! We're making doughnuts!" - Blake Walker). Two caveats: (1) Start them early in the day, since they have to rise. Yeast has been such a killjoy when I've tried to start recipes at night. I have no patience for you, yeast. (2) Invite friends over to eat these babies as soon as they're ready. Sadly, they're not quite as delicious the next day.

Ingredients (slight variation on SK's)--
1 tbsp. yeast
3/4 c. warm water
1/2 c. 2% milk
4 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
4 tbsp. butter
grape seed oil
