Donuts! - zombiecupcake - 04-09-2011 11:44 PM
I have been wanting to try my hand at making donuts lately. I looked around online and happened upon this cute baking pan:
This would allow me to sort of cheat and make a cake-donut (like the kind in Dunkin Donuts?) which I think would be nice to attempt.
Does anyone have a donut recipe or any advice on making a batch of donuts???

Ok, I love donuts, but can't have milk products. Do you think this would work with Rice milk and margarine, or would the batter be too thin?

would work for sure , you ajust the amount of flour to get the texture you need

Here's an easy recipe for making doughnuts using pizza dough. I have made these a few times now and I loved the simplicity (just bought some fresh pizza dough from the supermarket), they take no time at all and they were delicious! I didn't bother with the chocolate coating, I just mixed some icing sugar and cinnamon powder.
Vegetable oil, for frying
Olive oil, for frying
1 pound prepared pizza dough
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Pour equal parts of vegetable oil and olive oil into a large frying pan to reach a depth of 2 inches. Heat the oil over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 375 degrees F.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/2-inch thickness. Using a floured 2-inch cookie cutter, cut out doughnut rounds. Using a floured 1-inch cookie cutter, cut out a hole in the center of each doughnut. Gather the dough scraps and re-roll to cut out more doughnuts.
Whisk the sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl to blend. Set the cinnamon-sugar aside.
When the oil is hot, working in batches, fry the doughnuts until they puff but are still pale, about 45 seconds per side. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the doughnuts to paper towels to drain. Cool slightly. While the doughnuts are still warm, add to the bowl with cinnamon-sugar and generously coat each 2 times with the cinnamon-sugar. Serve warm.
Alternately, cool the fried doughnuts to room temperature. Stir 3 ounces milk chocolate and 1/4 cup whipping cream in a heavy small saucepan over medium-low heat until the chocolate melts. Set aside until the chocolate sauce comes to room temperature but does not set. Dip 1 side of each doughnut into the chocolate mixture. Sprinkle with finely chopped toasted almonds or crushed espresso beans and set aside until the chocolate is set.

Yum, donuts! I'm so lazy about making them because I have Voodoo Doughnuts a few blocks away...
Over on the Reccommended blogs... thread, Bageleth suggested The Pioneer Woman, and there's a donut recipe on that site as well, with step-by-step pictures.

Anyone ever made a doughnut from a spinning rear bike wheel? I havnt, but it looks good, especially those that do it with the feet on the pegs...

Hi, and you're welcome, zombiecupcake
The recipe Scottish Lass posted reminds me that a friend's Mom used to do exactly the same with Rhodes frozen bread dough. She let it thaw in the fridge overnight, then rolled, cut, and fried it. Not exactly classic donuts, but close enough for us kids She was no Julia Child, and she knew a good shortcut when she saw one LOL
