It's officially summer and so begins my desire to eat an exorbitant amount of fruit in all sizes and shapes. Hence, this recipe! Once again, I turn to my favorite blog Sally's Baking Addiction. Seriously, if you haven't checked out her blog, DO IT THIS MINUTE. It's perfection.
Anyway, a bit of background why I chose this recipe. I'm going hiking this week (lol) up in Saranac Lake, with my boyfriend and his dad, stepmom, and their kids. However, a few of these are gluten free and cow-milk intolerant, so I wanted to make a tasty treat that everyone would be ale to enjoy, because there is literally nothing worse than watching someone else eat something that you can't partake in, be it because of allergies or an intolerance or whatever. So I found this Grapefruit Loaf/ Cake recipe and decided to use it as a base for my adventure.
Hey there folks! It's been a busy week for me. I just started my summer internship in the classical music department of my local public radio station and finished my spring quarter classes. Next up for school is starting research for my thesis. Eek!
Anyway, onto today's baking adventure! But a little background first. Fun fact about me: I'm 50% Swedish! Jag talar inte svenska. That means: I do not speak Swedish. But, I am trying to learn through Duolingo, which is a pretty awesome website. If you haven't checked it out, I highly recommend it. Anyway, I hail from Scandanavia and one tradition that I love is dala horses. What's a dala horse you say?
Hi friends! It is with much excitement that I present this post (obvi a donut post) on National Donut Day! It's the most wonderful day of the year. I had briefly thought about just eating donuts all day - breakfast, lunch, and dinner - but then I figured that might be excessive so I'll just settle for two or three...
Fun Fact about National Donut Day: It originated in 1983 by the Salvation Army who were celebrating members who had served donuts to soldiers during World War I. Such history. Much tradition.
