I don't need to waste precious ingredients, so it's a good practice to find reader reviews before I try any recipes out in my kitchen.
Here is my reader review and revision for the improvised McKenzie Buttermilk Drop donuts recipe.
I am visiting my daughter in Washington and wanted to make fresh buttermilk donut drops for breakfast, so I located a recipe for McKenzies Bakery Buttermilk Drops on the net.
McKenzies Bakery was a New Orleans favorite and the Buttermilk Drops were unbelievably delish! The bakery is now closed, so if I want Drops, I have to make them!
I adapted a recipe I found online a bit and found it to be satisfactory.
I recommend you use a cooking thermometer to keep the oil temp. at 350 degrees.
They are really good!
If you want lattes or iced coffee, Torani's White Chocolate Flavor is a real good flavor addition!
