River Doughnuts

Growing up, we would visit my grandparents at their home on the Rappahannock River for days and weeks at a time in the summers. We’d spend all day in the water and when we weren’t in the water, we were eating. The best was when my grandfather, known for his sweet tooth, would make us River Doughnuts for breakfast! What is a River Doughnut you ask? Well, it’s a way to add more sugar and butter to an already delicious and low-cal Krispy Kreme doughnut. It’s also a way to improve leftover, almost-getting-stale doughnuts, if you were unfortunate enough to not eat them before they got to that state. It’s so simple that I don’t even know if it can even be called a “recipe,” but we’ll share anyway.
