At my house, we’re not really one for superstitions or traditions (Fun Fact: We had ribs on Thanksgiving). Because of that, I wasn’t really sure what to make that would inspire good luck. Fortune cookies…?
Luckily, this thing called the internet exists to help educate uneducated souls on the mysteries of the world. To google I went!
After some research, I decided to make these “Golden” Donuts. Here’s why they’re lucky:
- The round shape. It signififies the year coming to a full circle and new year beginning.
- The golden color. The color is supposed to be a sign of wealth and riches in the new year
- 1 1/2 cups spelt flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup yogurt
- 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup (maple syrup makes them taste like pancakes! Always a good thing)
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 egg or egg replacement
- 2 tbsp oil
- 1 tsp vanilla
