There are special people who affect lives across decades and Lucille Chamberlain is one of those. If you read the newspaper article above, you can get a feel for who she was and how she affected thousands of school children lives.
Lucille was an incredible person. It is difficult to tell of her accomplishments; she cooked at Nebo school from 1946 to 1984. Think about 250 meals a day times nearly 40 years, and then one can get a picture of her dedication.
Lucille was perhaps most famous for her doughnuts which she prepared to sell at any special event to raise money for the cafeteria. This amounted to 40 dozen doughnuts each time. Knowing from experience, there was always a mad rush to buy them after any school event. They sold out quickly.
This is Lucille Chamberlain's recipe for her famous doughnuts:
2 pkgs yeast
2 1/2 c. warm water
2/3 c. sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/2 tsp. salt
8 to 8 1/2 c. flour
Put in a cool place overnight after kneading it good. Next morning let it rise once. Roll dough and cut with doughnut cutter, and let rise double in size. Fry in deep fat cooker; fry until brown and then flip over to the other side. Glaze with powdered sugar and water icing.
To make cinnamon rolls: After kneading and keeping overnight, roll out dough and spread butter over it. Then sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon mixture and fill with filling. Then roll in a long roll. Cut into sections and place in a greased pan. Let rise until double in size. Bake at 375 deg. until filling is "bubbling" and top of rolls are browned and hard.
Filling: 1 c. sugar, 4 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 lb. butter, 1 c. brown sugar
I remember her so well, can hear her laugh. Say her name to residents of Nebo, and every single one will remember her and smile, saying Her doughnuts were amazing!
The recipe is simple, as you can tell. But, it was the hands that kneaded the dough who made the doughnuts special. Lucille was amazing.
