In Keeping with the Covid “19” them from yesterday… today I decided to finally try out the donut recipe from the cookbook my mom used to use.
The book is “The Country Fair Cookbook: Every Recipe is a Blue Ribbon Winner” Edited by Elise W Manning, Farm Journal Food Editor . (Amazon purchase link). Its one of those many mass produced “book club” magazine cookbooks that were everywhere at that time. But damn it has some good (fattening) recipes in it.
I admit, I was a very small child when I had a Jordan Marsh Blueberry Muffin, so I can’t really remember what they are like, but I’ve been on a quest for the right recipe for years. Everyone seems to have such fond memories of them so they have to be good.
I’ve tried a few, most notably one that I saw on a WCVB news segment eons ago. And since I love King Arthur flour since they are a local company to the area I am from in New Hampshire, I’ve tried their recipe also.
