for Homer Price and Doughnuts

David is currently reading 'Homer Price' in Literature. Along with his comprehension questions, there are several activities to get the kids 'into' the story. One of the activities for this book was making doughnuts.

With recipe in hand, and a willing older sister - David hit the kitchen this morning and made us all doughnuts!!!

The recipe is from the Veritas Press Comprehension Guide for 'Homer Price'. It is found on page 12.


4.5 cups flour
3.5 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons softened butter
3/4 cup evaporated milk

Mix flour, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon and baking powder. Beat eggs and sugar until creamy. Add vanilla, butter, milk, and dry ingredients. Make a soft dough and roll out to 1/3 inch thick. Cut with a well-floured doughnut cuttter, and drop into hot oil (375 degrees F). Roll in confectioner's sugar or fancy color sugars. Enjoy!

Rolling out the doughnuts and frying them up

mmmmm, tasty!

Testing, testing, 1-2 (3 in Victoria's case!)

Clean up! Clean up! Everybody, everywhere! No job is complete until the clean up is - completed that is!
