Well, today was donut day in culinary school. Donut day=amazingness. Sure, I've made cake donuts before that were a cinch because no deep fryer and/or yeast were involved. It was a simple recipe baked in my cutesy little donut pan that eliminated the risk of 375 degree hot oil burns. Baah, what was I thinking? Lame. Deep frying, on the other hand, comes from a completely different planet; and that planet is astounding...and fattening-or should I say astoundingly fattening? However, all of this "my skinny jeans don't fit anymore" talk is irrelevant because you become immersed in a deep fry world of hot oil, glazes, sprinkles, ganache, cinnamon, sugar, and what have you. You dig? It owns you. I'm intrigued.

Below is a selection of the donuts I made tonight, post class--because I just couldn't resist making them in my own kitchen. Again, the world of donuts have owned me for the past 15 hours. Yikes.

Cinnamon & Sugar

Vanilla Glazed with nonpareils

Those look awesome! What did you do with all those donuts???

Jelli said...

These look delicious. I must ask though, do you know why homemade doughnuts always have a darker color than those of the Krispy Kreme or supermarket counter? I've made them a few times, and I just can't convince myself that they look as delicate and pretty when they are a brown tone instead of the light golden tone of fast food doughnuts. I'd appreciate your expertise help.

I want to jump into that mountain of donuts and have my way with them.

I LOVE making donuts. But yours look so much better.

I, too, have one of those machines, but fried is sooooo much better.
