The Donut Fairy used to stop and visit Dan and me on a rare Sunday morning. But with Krispy Kreme shops closing and the local convenience store replacing their Krispy Kreme stash with generic bricks of yeast and sugar, we told the Donut Fairy not to bother anymore. We’d just try making our own.
The Donut Fairy laughed at us, saying, “You’ll never be able to do it!”
We tried anyway.
Understand that, despite the recipe’s name, they taste nothing at all like a Krispy Kreme. Also understand that there is still nothing more divine than a warm, homemade, glazed doughnut.
So, suck it, Donut Fairy. We don’t need you anymore.
