One of the things I missed most about Maryland was the FOOD! I had some fierce super chewy donut cravings. Don’t get me wrong – Texas definitely delivered when it came to good food as well. It’s just a different kind of food I missed. Above all, the crabs! Second to that is the delicious Italian food found all over Baltimore. My in-laws were amazing enough to overnight Maryland crabcakes to us in a FedEx ice-packed cooler. As far as Italian donuts? I made my own – and they’re JUST as good as I remember in Maryland.

Recreating Super Chewy Donuts at Home
Special Supplies Needed:
Pizza Dough (for Super Chewy Donuts):
While the oil is heating, cut and roll the dough into small balls, about the size of a large gumball. When the oil is ready, use a strainer ladle (or in my case, metal tongs) to place the dough into the oil.
Once the dough is deep golden brown, remove it from the oil and place it on a paper towel. Quickly toss the dough in the bowl of sugar and enjoy your super chewy donuts!
