Scribbits Apple Donut Recipe

Combine the following ingredients in this order in your bread machine and set your machine to "dough" cycle:

1 cup milk
¼ cup wheat germ
3 ¾ cups flour
3 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoon brown sugar
1 large grated apple
1 large egg
2 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ginger
1 tablespoon fast-acting yeast

When the dough is ready, shape into 14 donuts and let them rise 30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until browned and done. Immediately dip in a cinnamon/sugar mix (you can dip it in butter first if you dare, the taste is worth it but the calories may kill you).

Bake at 375 for 8 minutes the reduce the oven temperature to 350. Combine eggs, milk, oregano and pepper and beat thoroughly.

Squash and Pumpkin blossoms

photo by

Remove only the male blossoms-- those with thin, trim stems-- if you'd also like to harvest some squash. I like to use the pumpkin blossoms also. They also seem to be a little larger. I pick early in the morning, rinse and put in a baggie until dinner time to use. They stay fresh and plumb until then. I also use this same recipe for onion rings or deep fried mushrooms.

1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1 egg
1/2 c. milk
1 T. canola oil

12 large blossoms.

Mix altogether with mixer until smooth. Dip blossoms in batter and deep fry in at least 2 in. of oil until crisp.
