Grandma Grieb’s Doughnuts

Donuts lightly noised

Forty-five years ago when Margie (Grieb) and Scott Runels were first married Scott fell in love with Grandma Grieb’s doughnuts.  When Margie asked Grandma for her recipe she said she didn’t have one, but offered to teach Margie how to make them. Margie jumped at the chance to go over to Grandma’s and watch her. The following doughnut recipe is the result of their time together.
