What's better than having an extra long weekend vacation with good friends touring the back roads of Vermont on motorcycles? Well, nothing really. Unless, one of those friends is a loyal Donut Hunter and his wife is an amazing baker...of donuts!
Into this wonderful batch of homemade donuts Julie stressed the key ingredient, “whole” nutmeg; boy did it work. The “whole” nutmeg gives the donut a rich, full flavor with a slight spice that is to die for. Additionally, Julie combined the bourbon base vanilla, created by our friends Fiona and Jeff, to make a sugar glaze that perfectly complements the hint of nutmeg; Tony agreed.
We ended up with over a dozen plain raised donuts, glazed, cinnamon sugar and chocolate glazed. I'm not ashamed to say that I polished of at least 7 and I'm looking forward to the next batch. I'll be sure to post the recipe as soon as Julie will give it up. But if you have a favorite recipe let us know and we'll bake a batch and immortalize you in The Donut Directory!
