The book has symbols to guide you: classic, quick to make, fun to make with kids and extra fancy. Just again, know that unless the kids are old enough to handle cooking with hot oil, these definitely need adult supervision. There are good general instructions on ingredients, proofing yeast, the equipment, the time, the frying.
Interesting variations include mashed potato doughnuts Krispy Kreme Kopycat doughnuts and browned butter-brown sugar sour cream doughnuts.
There are pictures of the final product, but none of an instructional nature, which would be an asset. . These are products which do not have a long lifespan, both in freshness and staying around because usually anyone near will want to eat them. There are measurement equivalents and an index.
This is an interesting and specialized cookbook to add to your cookbook collection.
My love for doughnuts can be traced back to when I was growing up and my Grandma Barbra and I would visit Jack’s Donuts in New Castle, Indiana at least once a week on our way to get groceries. I remember (even then) I would order four or five donuts and my Grandma would say “WHO is going to eat all of those?!” I remember saying “I AM!” Ha! ;) Some things never change…
(Do you spell it “doughnuts” OR “donuts”!? Shot me an email and let me know – SURVEY TIME – email@example.com)
This cookbook has every possible doughnut recipe you can imagine! From the original doughnuts, to the potato doughnut, all types of glazes, frying and baking methods, frostings and techniques. I am just in love with this book.
I could go on and on and tell you about the recipes in this book (apple fritters, blackout chocolate doughnuts, Buttercream filled doughnuts, caramel-bourbon-pecan doughnuts, chocolate-salted caramel doughnuts, gingerbread, grape, lemon meringue, marshmallow fluff and peanut butter filled, old-fashioned lard-fried, pineapple filled, spiced chocolate, toffee crunch chocolate ganache, white chocolate truffle…) but just trust me when I say you NEED this book! If you love doughnuts – and you have always wanted a book filled with good recipes – this is it! This is the only doughnut cookbook you’ll need!
