    1. I also agree but I don't think it's the font. The background is to busy and makes it difficult to read.

  19. What can I use instead of shortening?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Can you clarify what type of shortening you use. I tried butter and the donuts were not light and fluffy. Could it be I should have used crisco? Any suggestions would be appreciated

  22. Hi !! i tried this recipe but i thought 2 packets of yeast was a lot so i just put like a table spoon. in my other donut recipes i usually put very little too. but this time my dough didn't rise that much and the dough was very dense. do you know what could have gone wrong? please let me know! thank you =) and your font and flower background are totally fine! lol also do i have to knead the dough?
