Doughnuts Rose Kelly's recipie -1933- 3 cups milk scalded, 2 cakes Fleisherman's yeast disolved in 1/2 cup milk, 2 tablespoons sugar disolved with yeast. enough flour to spongue. Rise 1 hr. then add 2 eggs beaten with 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup melted lard, 1 teaspoon salt. Knead up like light bread. Let rise double size, then roll out and cut and let rise 45 minutes, fry in hot fat, dust in sugar. These can be flavored with spice if necessary but vanilla is preferred. From the recipe book of Besse Haskit Old.

My husband was born Gerald Raymond Kelly on January 10, 1949 in San Diego, CA. He was given up for adoption right after birth and was adopted August 31, 1949 by another couple and his name was then changed to Gregory Arnold Papstein. His adoption was a closed and sealed adoption. He would love to find his siblings born from the same mother if possible. He doubts that his birth father was ever with his birth mother after he was conceived or born, but this remains a mystery to him.
