5.0 out of 5 stars Donuts are the new Cupcakes!, September 25, 2010

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Doughnuts: Simple and Delicious Recipes to Make at Home (Paperback)
Finally, a cookbook for donuts! Until now, there was only "The Donut Book", by Sally Levitt Steinberg - a great book; but more history than recipes (the banana donuts are excellent by the way). But Lara Ferroni's "Doughnuts" is the book I've been waiting for. Raised, Cake, Baked, Gluten-Free, and Vegan - they're all here; with many glazes and flavor combinations to get excited about... There are Red Velvet donuts, Huckleberry Cheesecake-filled donuts, Mocha, S'more-flavored, Chocolate Raised, and the ever more popular Maple Bacon Bars. The photos are gorgeous and plentiful, from the author who has a major talent for food photography.
You CAN make your own fabulous donuts at home. Instructions are simple and complete. I made the Basic Raised Doughnuts, and they were the tallest, lightest, most ethereal donuts ever. I highly recommend this book.

Is there a reason that this book takes 2 weeks too ship?

Question Basic recipe on page 2 says to use 3 TABLESPOONS of yeast.
My husband insists you must mean teaspoons. King Arthur Cookbook says teaspoons as do other books. Is this an error or is it correct?
Thank you.

I questioned the author immediately on this. She admitted it is a LOT of yeast and you can use less. I probably used 1 tablespoon and was successful. Also, I use the extra-active (fast-rising) yeast typically used for bread machine doughs. Am really loving her cake doughnut recipe currently. A donut craving can hit; and you can be eating them within half an hour. You'll need a special pan for baking though.

Thank you so much. My husband was sure it was incorrect but bought extra yeast just in case. We will be frying them as we have a deep fryer.
Again thanks so much for quick response.
