One of the things I miss most about Maryland is the FOOD! Don't get me wrong - Texas definitely delivers when it comes to good food as well. It's just a different kind of food I miss. Above all, the crabs! Second to that is the delicious Italian food found all over Baltimore. My in-laws are amazing enough to overnight Maryland crabcakes to us in a FedEx ice-packed cooler. As far as Italian donuts? I make my own - and they're JUST as good as I remember in Maryland.
It's a very simple recipe. I found a basic pizza dough recipe and instead of covering it with sauce and cheese, I deep fry hunks of the dough and roll it in sugar. Oh sweet heavens! These are the chewiest, most delicious donut!
Here's what you need:
Once the dough is deep golden brown, remove it from the oil and place it on a paper towel. Quickly toss the dough in the bowl of sugar and ENJOY!
