Brigham Young's Donuts

This original recipe for buttermilk donuts was contributed by Sister Naomie Young Schettler, a granddaughter of Brigham Young. It was first made by Emily Partridge Young, Sister Schettler’s grandmother. A favorite with President Young, the donuts became so popular that they eventually were sold at the Zion’s Cooperative Mercantile Institution department store in Salt Lake City.
