This Doughnut Recipe From 1805 Still Tastes Delicious, And It’s So Simple Too!The Literacy Site
You won’t find these at Krispy Kreme! Did you know doughnuts have been around the U.S. since the early 1800’s (and possibly earlier than that)? Although we wouldn’t recognize some of the recipes from that time, this following recipe from the 1805 edition of Hannah Glasse’s cookbook, “The Art of Cookery Made Plain and Easy,” sure looks delicious! Glasse intended to help educate those going into domestic service for the wealthy English households, but her ideas spread to housewives and across the world to America. This historic recipe is quick and simple, and you’ll see how to make your own batch in the following video from Jas. Townsend and Son, Inc. We love to see these old recipes come back to life, especially when they are this simple and delicious. Who knows? This recipe could become your new favorite doughnut recipe!
