on October 17, 2010
This book has donut recipes for almost everyone. It starts off with the basic recipes, then moves to simple glazes, and finally donut variations. There are lots of variations, such as the apple pie, s'mores, peanut butter and jelly, apple cider, red velvet, carrot cake, brandied eggnog, german chocolate cake, and maple bacon bars. One of the great things about the book is that there are recipes for people with different sensitivities/diets. There is a gluten-free recipe, a baked raised donut recipe, and a vegan recipe.

It also has recipes for donut-like creations, such as malasadas, sopapillas, and loukoumades. The instructions for the recipes are so clear that a beginning baker wouldn't have trouble following them. I had never made donuts before, and the baked raised donuts I made came out very well. They reminded me a bit of a sweet roll, but they were very tasty.

Another plus is that you don't need a lot of specialized equipment to make the recipes. Though, the author does suggest buying donut pans if you want to bake any of the donuts other than the baked raised (which can be baked on a sheet pan).
