I’m a sucker for donuts. I used to get donuts instead of birthday cake. I’m always on the prowl for a mom and pop donut shop because the chains just don’t make them the way they should.
There are two types of donuts: cake vs yeast. It’s a battle for the ages. Last year I took a stab at cake donuts and they turned out pretty good. This time I went for a yeast based dough. I’m a big fan of dough/bread making and felt a yeast based donut was something to tackle. We had our wonderful assistant Dominique help us out and she did an excellent job blogging about it, so I’ll just redirect you over there.
