Have you ever heard of a Jumble? Me neither...but it's those things right up there. I would describe them as a cross between a donut, a cake and a cookie without the grease. They are light and easy to make with kids. Yip kept bugging me this week to make donuts. I hate the deep frying part of donut making. Not because of the unhealthiness, just because it's too much mess to clean up and I always get burnt by hot oil. I found this recipe in my cookbook, A Prairie Kitchen.
This is also where I found the recipe for Graham Bread.
Jumbles, July 19, 1886 (modified by me just a bit)
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. butter
(We rolled the dough into a ball, slightly larger than a golf ball, flattened it between our hands, then poked a hole with our finger to shape the doughnuts. I also baked them for 12 minutes or more.)
Good luck and enjoy!
