Old-fashioned Elderberry Donuts!!!

becky-doughty-falling-into-grace Okay. I just got off the phone with Willow Goodhope. I’ve put in a request.

I found Larissa’s AMAZING recipe (with pictures!) for old-fashioned donuts using blueberry Greek yogurt on the oh-so-delicious Somewhat Simple website, and I have asked Willow to try her hand at this recipe, but using elderberries instead.


Guess what – she said she’d give it a whirl and bring me a basket, so I’ll let you know how they turn out. Knowing Willow, they’ll be perfect.

For those of you who don’t want to wait for my verdict, head on over to Somewhat Simple. Try it! Let me know how YOUR donuts turn out!
