2015 DoughnutIt’s fall at the Iowa City Farmer’s Market. Pumpkins and gourds are for sale, the air is crisp, apples are fresh, and we’re starting to think about frost.

This time of year I start making my “just one more” list …

Just one more order of breakfast tacos …

Just one more cup of delicious coffee enjoyed while sitting on a curb watching people …

Just one more Farmer’s Market pie …

Just one more (well … 2 more) spring rolls for my lunch …

Just one more pint of jalapenos for Poppers …

And my favorite … Just one more CIDER DONUT … (How will I live without them?)

The good news is there are a few more weeks of Farmer’s Market remaining and time to check off the items on my “just one more” list.

When I was a child my Mom used to make homemade donuts. I remember dough fried in oil in a cast iron skilled, flipped over with a fork, drained on a paper towel and then tossed in powdered sugar. Yummy! We didn’t have donuts often, but when we did it was a treat. I’ve never made donuts for my family – crepes are our go-to weekend morning treat. The Library has a few books about donuts, though, and I may give them a try. To find these books, navigate to the Library’s catalog (catalog.icpl.org), select the SUBJECT tab, and type in DOUGHNUT. You can type in DONUT but it will refer you to the formal spelling. The book that caught my eye was A baker’s field guide to doughnuts : more than 60 warm and fresh homemade treats. 🙂
