the smell for doughnuts (Berliners) filled with jam, dusted with sugar is a food memory that I cherish. The last thing to be arranged on the pastry buffet in a hotel are these golden goodies, my baker friends always exchange these with me for some soft clouds of scrambled eggs. After all sharing is caring...

This is Aparnaji's Recipe. She is an amazing baker who bakes without eggs and a her passion for photography is a visual feast.

warm milk - 1 cup
