Notes

The earliest origins to the modern doughnuts are generally traced back to the olykoek ("oil(y) cake") Dutch settlers brought with them to early New York (or New Amsterdam). These doughnuts closely resembled later ones but did not yet have their current ring shape.

WP Tasty:

I am using this and the only issue I have is that I did not start earlier! 😢 This is a fantastic feature and plugin, to have on your blog when you share recipes.  Your recipe has a set structure and Google loves it.  Would you like it and have Google include it and show it as a search result when someone searches for a recipe?  Yes OR No?  

My guess would be that you will answer YES to the above.  For that reason alone, it’s highly beneficial to use the WP Tasty plugin!

You can type it out in the body of your post, but having a recipe card that’s aesthetically pleasing and when laid out for sure has a benefit in that it will keep your readers on your page longer to read the full recipe and hopefully leave a comment and try your recipe.  Tasty Links
