Recently Cooked Doughnuts from the Solar Oven
I found a doughnut pan at my daughter's house a month ago that I didn't even know she had and knew that she doesn't use much since she works full time and always seems to have plenty to do. So I adopted it for the time being and am having so much fun with it, she might have to remind me to give it back!
After experimenting with a few recipes, this chocolate one seems to be everyone's favorite!
