Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
My grandfather Reber was a baker by trade and passed on his recipe books to me. I made raised doughnuts one time and BaBap loved them. It does take a long time and the frying is always a bit messy, but every now and again, BaBap would come and ask me to make "that fried dough" for him.
