Hi everyone and welcome back to Nikoli's Kitchen! This week is your first mid-season episode, and though I fully intended it to be shorter, I just missed being on the mic so much and I had some things to get out. In the first half of the show I'll talk about being on a plateau and overwhelming myself too much, and then in the back half we talk about the glazed donuts I made live on the air during this year's Livestream for the Cure. A special thanks to all of my listeners and supporters for coming out and supporting the event! We smashed our goal once again and ended up raising over $23,000 for the Cancer Research Institute. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.


Featured Recipe for this Episode

I followed the recipe pretty much to the letter from Bless This Mess for donuts, so I'll just link it here!


Donut Glaze

2 c powdered sugar
1 t vanilla
2 T heavy cream
2 T milk

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together until combined (dribble in a bit more milk if this is too thick, it shouldn't be thick like batter but be a bit thinner).
When the donuts are hot out of the oil, place in the glaze and then flip to coat it all over and then remove.
