There’s a lot we’ve learnt from binge-watching The Simpsons. That a couch is an important family member. That it’s totally normal when people are yellow in cartoons. And, most importantly, that doughnuts and beer are the answer to all of life’s problems.
Homer Simpson’s Great Loves
There are three great loves of Homer Simpson’s life. His wife, Marge, Duffy beer and doughnuts. Lots and lots of doughnuts.
His love for donuts is evident in almost every episode; in a Tree House of Horror episode, Homer transports himself to an alternate reality where his family is rich and happy but doesn’t have doughnuts. He chooses to go back to regular life where the family lives a mediocre life, but have doughnuts. In another episode, he sells his soul for a donut. In yet another, he begins injecting donuts into his system.
Homer’s favourite donuts, we think, are pink ones with rainbow coloured sprinkles which make their appearance in several episodes.
In a tribute to The Simpsons and Homer’s hilariousness, we’re sharing a recipe for pink frosted doughnuts today. Enjoy them as a snack this weekend with Duffy beer, which you can now buy from stores!
