I have a great love of sprinkle doughnuts. It is the one choice that is easiest in my life. Other folks might hum and haw, simply agonizing over the choice (or, is that just me?). Not me. I will pick the one with the most colourful sprinkles on it, every time.
I finally got the courage up to try making doughnuts again - homemade doughnuts are my nemesis. I am not talking about heating up a large pan of oil courage - I am not there yet. Maybe someday, with a fireproof suit and a fire extinguisher on hand. No - these are just the baked variety. Now. my past troubles could be the fault of the recipes I was using - but much more likely to be user error. So, this is my latest attempt. Not bad. Not bad at all. My only issue is that they were a little crumbly - which could have contributed to (or resulted in) bits sticking to the pan. I haven't had that problem before. Trust me, the pan was super greased. But, at the end of the day, they taste pretty darn good. They taste exactly like...chocolate cupcakes in doughnut shape. So why not just make cupcakes? Because, doughnuts. Doughnuts are like blondes - they are just so much more fun.
