So, I crawled in the door just about 48 hours ago after 22 hours in a car, a bus, a plane and then a car again (NOT as young as I used to be!) and I've finally gotten up enough gumption to want something to eat other than whatever the pizza delivery guy can bring to my door, so out came the book and the pan.Read more ›
Each recipe even includes directions for both mini-donut pans and electric donut makers. Donut pans produce light, airy, cupcake-like donuts, and the machines create thicker, denser cakelike donuts - both are good, so you can start out on the cheap with the pan, and then move up to the electric maker if you're addicted.
The photos are lush and appetizing. The recipes you expect are there - blueberry cake, sour cream cake, etc - but there's ideas I never would have imagined. Fast canned-biscuit fried mini donuts that are ready in minutes?!? Salted caramel mini donuts? Sweet potato marshmellow mini donuts? Brown butter bourbon mini donuts? Wow - I'm impressed.
So far I've made one recipe because I've only had the machine for about a week and a half. I chose the Chocolate Cake Mini Donut recipe and it came out very well. My only problem was that the batter was thicker than I expected (or maybe I let it sit too long) and I had to spoon it into the donut machine instead of pouring it. My result was donuts without holes, but they were delicious anyway!
My other mistake was letting the donuts cool and then thinking that I should make the icing. It still works, but my donuts won't be on the cover of a magazine too soon. I guess I'll just have to eat my mistakes and try again.
I gave the book four stars because I would really like to have some calorie information, but considering that donut machines vary in size this would probably have been impossible for the publisher. So, 4.5 stars if possible!
There are six chapters: classics, chocolate, fruity, donuts of the stars, bakery specials, candy-aisle donuts, drinks to donuts, and for the kid in you. Some of the recipes I want to make next are the Key Lime Pie, Dulce de Leche, and Eggnog. The recipes use ingredients that you are likely to find in any supermarket so you won't need to special order ingredients to make them.Read more ›
-Easy to follow recipes -- my daughter can essentially do this activity alone
-Recipes are forgiving -- using 2% instead of whole milk or light sour cream instead of whole milk, for example, hasn't been a problem
-Non-yeast recipes, as well as those for yeast and fried donuts
-Pretty tasty -- and cute, too!
-Good instructions for different cooking methods (e.g., baking in donut pans, electric donut makers, frying) and clearly marked recipes so you can figure out which method a recipe requires
-Nice photos and design
-Common ingredients used for the majority of recipes
-The book itself is small -- kind of mini, but not so mini that it's difficult to use -- and put together nicely, with high-quality paper and a hardcover
-This is titled as 100 recipes, but that is not accurate. There are 100 items, but many of the donut varieties are actually the same basic donut with various glazes and toppings. I suppose it's nice to have the batter recipe handy to the photo and glaze recipe so you don't have to keep flipping around, but I'm not sure it justifies calling this 100 recipes. I have not done a real survey, so perhaps as we use the book more, I will find that there is more variation on the batter recipes than I am seeing so far.
Overall, I recommend the book, especially if you're getting an electric donut maker, because it gives a good visual tour of variety of cakey bites you can make and the recipes are forgiving and simple to follow--but I give it 4 stars for fudging on the title count.

I like this except all of the recipes are too small, you have to double the size on all of them. Also all of the recipes are too thick and need more milk added to them in order to... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Aaron Baker
