Doughtnut days


That's right, we made doughnuts and they were awesome. Recipe curtsy of Random Girl .
We double the recipe and added some extra Mace (worth the purchase it gave the dough a lovely sweet spice). Some where fried, other's baked (with a unfortunate accident for those on the lower rack >.<).inside shots!

We started with taking the warm baked donuts and dipping them first into melted earth balance and then into a bowl of cinnamon sugar with cinnamon. Very good, although messy our technique was not presented. We also took confectioners sugar with water as suggested for a nice white glaze which was very pretty. Doubling the dipping action for extra sweet crispy goodness. I also turned the eb/brown sugar bowl into a glaze of its own, cinnamon style. Here they are in various forms. Assembly line


Fired VS Baked Bowl for the nerds.

These ones were on the bottom rack.... oops.

hmmm, this was a while ago. Mostly I remember liking the fried ones better as they became crispy on the outsiders and fluffy inside. The baked ones had more of a doughy/bready texture (and some/most were burnt on the bottom because I forgot about them).
