After hearing about a friend’s mum making homemade donuts, and then seeing something similar on Food TV, I just needed to make some homemade donuts for myself.
So off I went to the Intertubes for some Googling, and came across a whole lot of completely useless recipes. Like the one that a lady said “was passed down from her grandmother and wanted to share with everyone”. And do you know what was in that “recipe” for Grandma’s Homemade donuts? A can of buttermilk biscuit dough! That is not a recipe! What was even more stupid was that people were commenting how amazing it was and giving it a high rating! Come on people – recipes are recipes. They are not instructions on how to fry premade dough.
Anyway, finally decided on trying Alton Brown’s Yeast Doughnuts. To be honest, it was the husband who did all the work as I opted to look after Abby (took the easier route).
These turned out perfectly. We sprinkled some with cinnamon sugar, and glazed the others with vanilla and chocolate icing. We had donuts coming out of our ears for the next couple of days, but I was not complaining!
The best thing to come out of our deep fryer. I love our deep fryer.
