    I haven't had a donut in years but I can bring to mind the taste of a chocolate covered with coconut. YUMMY!

    Before my grandmother was unable to cook any longer, she would make the most amazing home-made donuts. They were covered with a liquid powered sugar mixture and she always served them warm. I would love to come home to grandma's house on the weekends because I knew she would make those wonderful donuts on Sunday morning. mmmmm... good memories from a long time ago. I have not had a donut in a long time. I used to have her recipe around here somewhere. Would be fun to dig it out and see if I can make them again.

    Cheers,

    I don't think I've had a donut since the boys left home. They make them fresh on the sea front near here, but it would have to be a custard donut! Calories and all!
