Red Raspberry for Fertility…Bunny Style

In order to get my ute in shape for the upcoming IUI, I know I should be eating lots of fertility-enhancing things like pineapples and owls and whatever the fuck. I’ve heard red raspberry tea is the shit, but I couldn’t bring myself to actually buy a box. (Or borrow a few DOZEN from Lady Pumpkin.) But then I realized that Other Pathways are open to me. Namely, raspberry jelly doughnuts with lavender sugar. (In case you were wondering what to do with that lavender in your garden.) Mr. Bunny and I made them last night. (He does the deep fat frying in our househhold.) I figured I should let you in on my amazing secret for tons of babies, and also provide a little disgusted frisson for those of you who are into clean living.

NOM!

Tomorrow’s my ultrasound, so let’s hope nothing horribly disappointing happens. Not that it could, what with my doughnut treatment and all.

  1. I've been obsessed with raspberry leaf tea ever since Secret Sloper hypothesized that it was responsible for her 13mm lining, haha. But this is a MUCH better way to get it into the diet, yum.GOOD LUCK tomorrow. Hoping for good follie action and great fluffy lining and the bloodwork to back it all up. xo

  3. I LOVE that you made these! They look gorgeous and delish and, most importantly, fertilitastic. I believe every family needs a resident deep-fryer; N is ours. Thanks for the shout-out! I hope you know you can drop by for fertilitea any time, but you'd better act fast; I polished off the first box last night–a mere five remain! Hope your ultrasound is picture-perfect tomorrow.

    Jaysus, you're making a hungry woman *drool* over here. Can you send an overnight shipment to my house, please? After you've consumed your own therapeutic quantity of deep-fried baby-making doughballs, that is. Nom.

  6. Those sure look yummy. Better than eating owls, I'll say. I think you're heading for ultrasound bliss after eating those. Full of raspberries and lavender indeed! I'll be thinking of you tomorrow. Hope it goes well.

  7. Once again, your baking prowess astounds.The tea tastes like shit, and probably is just another scam on us pathetic infertile ladies. Just eat these, and you will at least be happy at your u/s.

  8. WANT. WANTWANTWANT!!Hey, we might be cycle-buddies. My follie scan is tomorrow, too!

  9. Egad, I'm an idiot. I was wondering how you would make those, because "wouldn't it be tough to make a ball of jelly and then how do you get the dough to stick to it before you fry it? What a mess that would…."OH. Right. Fry then fill. Right?

  10. Those are shining beacons of perfection. Mmmmmm. Suddenly, I have an urge to bake, too!! I have been meaning to make pineapple upside down cake, and perhaps this afternoon is just the occasion!If those donuts don't do the trick this cycle, then no amount of herbal remedies can.

  11. Bunny, I am going to move to Ohio if you keep that up. I am drooling. My latest snake oil is royal jelly. That in honey is delicious, though. It would be even better in a doughnut!I have high hopes for your lining. Say howdy to wandy for me.

    August 13, 2010
  15. Yum!!! Lavender sugar!!! Genius!!The funny thing is that eating raspberry doughnuts to assist conception wouldnt even come close to the strangest thing i've done to try and get pregnant!

    August 14, 2010
  16. That looks so yummy! I hope it works. LOL at eating owls.

  21. Those are absolutely NOMTASTIC. Could you please send a plate my way? Or at least post the recipe so that my husband can make me some? (He is also the deep fryer in our household). Best wishes for tomorrow.

  22. I want those donuts. Ever since the surgery all I have wanted to eat is sweets (unusual for me).
