Donuts and a Swarovski Giveaway

Hi Readers,

We have always liked donuts(or doughnuts). Finally we managed to muster up enough guts to try it and say what, it came out really nice. Fluffy, soft and beautiful looking. No, we are not talking about a newborn, it is about a donut.


flour - 2 cups
sugar - 3/4 cup
unsalted butter softened - 5 tbsp
egg yolks - 3 (added 2 whole eggs and still turned out fine)
yeast instant - 2 tsps
warm milk - 1 cup or little less


  • Add all the ingredients together. Sift the dry ingredients together to avoid lumps.
  • Kneed the dough for sometime and leave it aside in a greased bowl till it becomes twice in size.
  • After that punch out the excess air and roll them into 1/4 inch thickness. and using a cookie cutter and bottle cap(or anything), cut them in the shape of doughnuts.
  • Take the excess dough and repeat.
  • Let them rise again for another hour or two in a warm place. One hour is enough though.
  • Heat oil and fry the donuts on each side for a few minutes to make sure it cooks evenly.
  • Glaze with things you like - chocolate, or plain glaze or sprinkle plain cinnamon sugar.

Now to our giveaway. We were contacted by, an online jewellery store who have a variety of eye-catching rings, bracelets and watches with straps that can be switched. They have got some nice chunk jewellery that are very very good, if we may say so. The lucky winner who will be selected randomly selected will be receiving a Swarovski Pearl ring
or a Swarovski Crystal ring. The winner will choose the colour and style of the ring.

Following are the things you need to do to participate in the giveaway:

  1. Follow us(our blog) on Google Friends Connect, Facebook and Twitter.
  2. Go to Name that Bling page on the website and participate in naming their new jewellery addition and leave a comment on our blog along with the name you suggested there. Name That Bling is a weekly contest where participants submit names for new jewelry designs. At the end of the week, they select five finalists and let their customers vote for their favorite. The winning name is featured on their website and the person who submitted that name wins a FREE watch of their choice(this is in addition to the giveaway). Isn't that cool?
  3. The winner will be selected randomly and notified duely. They will have to leave an address for receiving the gift by mailing us (

All the Best and Happy shopping.
