      Well now I can add another achievement patch to my apron ~ Novice Donut Maker! I enjoyed working with this recipe & am convinced that from now on I need to stock frozen white bread dough! Will definitely be making these again! I did two versions this first time, half of them frosted (with a center hole) & the other half were filled with lemon curd! BIG HITS! WONDERFUL RECIPE! GREAT KEEPER! Many thanks! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my partners in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #21]
