I love weekends! Friday for me is one of the best days of the week. Why? Because next day is Saturday. For me weekend means a somewhat less, running around like crazy, time. Of course, I still get up around 8:00 to 8:30, because of my son, who is the rooster of the house, but I have the luxury to stay with my pajamas and enjoy my cup of milk without the weekdays’ frantic rhythms.

And then, as I am sitting comfortably on my couch, trying to contemplate a little bit and think something other than work, cooking, studying and all these beautiful things that fill my weekdays, then a voice comes from the other side of the room saying in Greek what I am about to tell you right now: “I am hungry, I need something sweet.” There! My sweet, precious, little moment is gone my friends! Gone with the wind!

Gone because the picky little one cannot really understand those precious little moments, not yet. But you see, life is like a circle and as we say here “where you are right now, I was; where I am right now, you will be.” Oh, people’s sayings are so wise! So, I know that when the time comes, he will search desperately for these precious, little moments himself.

Anyway, I knew that phrase was my call, so I left the comfort of my couch and my pajamas; I put my kitchen clothes and started making something sweet for my little one!

I saw this recipe in King Arthur’s site and I immediately thought of my doughnut  maker. I knew it would be perfect for making tiny doughnuts and I was right!

Autumn is all about apples and I thought that this recipe would be perfect for a “fallish” Sunday morning!

The doughnuts were so delectable there was nothing left by the end of our lunch! I made about 30 to 35 pieces! If you don’t have a doughnut appliance you can use a regular doughnut pan.
