ITJB FR Week 12 Yeast Raised Donuts pps. 168-170
We 3 sisters fried donuts today! Wow, this is the best donut recipe ever! Really got good rise, easy to fry and glaze or sugar as we all did a variety... Barbra and Helen have been regular baking whirling dervishes... busy, busy with the Holiday things... me, lazy... and just doing the weekly bake, but that is okay... I like having my time to read about what everyone on this website is doing!
Here is how the donuts when down... by the way... these were way to good to keep around, and fresh and hot is how the kids, grands, and neighbors liked them.
All of our dough looked about like this before the first rise... not all had the great reflection in the plastic wrap of my oven element!...
Helen and I made 16 each, making only half of the required recipe... Barb made the whole batch, so imagine 2 trays like this and a few more!
Barb's donuts are all boxed up and ready to take to the grandkids and the volunteer fire department... kept back a couple for the apprentices. Lovely looking, glazed, plain, and powdered. Very nice! She said they were much to good to keep around her diabetic hubby... proof positive when she returned from her deliveries and the one she left on the counter was GONE!... Good thing she didn't leave a dozen behind! ;-)
Helen's awesome donuts and holes... she went for all powdered... there were some very sweet things going on in her kitchen... cakes, caramels, toffees and way more... what a busy place... happier than Disneyland, I am just saying!!!
Mine are really, really, good... sharing with the neighbors... or dying one or the other!
I did glazed, sugar and cinnamon, and powdered.
And that completes Week 12 of this great challenge... We are finishing Norm and Stan's book next week with the Golden Chiffon Cake on page 197. Join us for the FINAL BAKE OF THE FINAL ROUND of the ITJB Cookbook Challenge.
Happy Holiday Baking,
