Big Doughnut - Help please.
I am a pretty good baker.
For her eighth birthday, my daughter would like this cake: "A big doughnut with 8 regular doughnuts on top, each with a candle."
I will buy the 8 doughnuts hot from kkreme. I have a "big doughnut" cake pan for the big doughnut, but rather than cake would like to bake a yeasted bread. Previously, I have baked a sweet dough with cinnamon rolled in the pan, but am looking for something different. I would love an extremely light but open textured sweet bread, nearly as insignificant materially as the small doughnuts on top.
I will probably not experiment and perfect, but bake off a single big doughnut.
