    Doughnuts are fried in oil. If you bake them, they are cakes. If you
    microwave them, they are garbage.
    Mix a little dough or buy some ready made pizza dough. Let it rise and
    microwave it and you'll have your answer.

    was the best .

    Cream Puffs & Eclairs

    " This recipe was put together to have a dessert that is low in fat
    and extra low in sugar and sodium, so delicious, that even a diabetic
    would think they were in sugar heaven. Well, here it is, try it."

    Nonstick cooking spray

    1 cup Water
    5 Tbsp Unsalted margarine
    1/2 cup Sifted all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup Cornstarch
    3 large Eggs


    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with
    the cooking spray and set aside.

    In a medium-size heavy saucepan, bring the water and margarine to a
    boil, uncovered, over moderately high heat -- about 1 minute.
    Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the flour and cornstrch and
    quickly add -- all at once -- to the boiling mixture. Stir briskly
    with a wooden spoon until the mixture forms a ball around the spoon
    and does not cling to the sides of the pan. Remove from the heat and
    cool for 2 minutes, then add the eggs, one at a time, beating well
    after each addition, until the dough is smooth and glossy.

    To shape cream puffs, drop the dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto
    the baking sheet, spacing the puffs about 2 inches apart. To shape
    eclairs, shape the dough into narrow rectangles about 3 1/2 inches
    long (it's easiest to do this by piping the dough through a pastry bag
    fitted with a large plain tip)

    Bake the puffs or eclairs for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350
    degrees F and bake 25 minutes longer or until the puffs are firm.
    Transfer to wire racks and cool to room temperature -- about 1 hour.

    To fill, slice the puffs in half horizontally, spoon a tablespoon of a
    low-calorie pudding filling into the bottoms, and replace the tops.
    Makes 15 large cream puffs or eclairs.

    I wouldn't feed that to a pig. At least not a pig that I wasn't
    getting ready to slaughter.

    stage it can't organize a cognicent thought/reaction..... even if it's life
    depended on it.
