Who doesn’t like donuts🍩, those classic rings known above all because eaten by Homer Simpson🤣. They are easy to prepare and if made at home they will be even more nutritious as we will eliminate the additives and preservatives found in industrial ones. They can also be baked in the oven to contain their high fat content.
