Dough-not Eat (BC#5)
We made doughnuts! They were very fun to make. I loved making the dough and getting to cut out the doughnut shapes as if they were cookies. Decorating was also fun, it was similar to decorating other baked goods such as cookies or cakes. This was my first time making doughnuts.
We made vanilla doughnuts and chocolate doughnuts. We also made a glaze for the chocolate ones and a cinnamon sugar coating for the vanilla ones.
I decided against eating the doughnuts because of the frier. I have no idea what kind of oil is used and what has been fried in there before. I also did not do any of the frying because I was unsure if I would react to being so close to it.
I wasn't able to take a photo of the doughnuts, but they came out really nice. I let my partner take them all home, he did such a great job and I could not eat the doughnuts anyway.
I do not have a frier at home and I have no interest in ever owning a frier, so I am unsure if I will ever get to make doughnuts again. Fried foods are really unhealthy and if anything it was better that I decided to not eat them.
Stay tuned for next time when I make crepes and fritters for the first time.
