I cheated. I had a donut before I got home. “I’m sorry, I couldn’t help it,” I told Heather. She was very forgiving, as she understood my situation. I had a bag full of apple cider donuts from The Apple Farm, here in Victor. It was my second trip in a week for these irresistible treats. How could I resist opening the bag, even before I got in the car?? It was difficult with the bags of apples I was carrying (which were also really good!), but I managed.
Honestly, donuts are never my first choice in baked goods. I generally find them to be too dry. So…a couple weeks back, when Chef Mark suggested we make a special trip to go get some, I was a little skeptical. But these donuts are an exception; moist and flavorful. Yum.
I figured a Pumpkin Harvest Ale pairing would make for a nice fall snack, and I was right. Cheers!
