I finally did it. I bought a doughnut pan.
I've been contemplating it for a while, one has been in my amazon basket since Christmas. Finally during a late night trip to Sainsburys, I saw one, it was reduced, I couldn't not buy it. I decided to stay basic with the first recipe, keep it simple; vanilla, chocolate, BOOM!
I am not going to lie to you and tell you these taste just like Krispy Kreme, because they don't. they aren't the same, not even a little bit. You know what though? They are still pretty damn good.
I still want to tweak the recipe, try other flavour combinations, play with yeast... The possibilities are endless. Watch this space for further doughnut experiments.
This was the ideal starter recipe, a good place to start my slightly unhealthy doughnut obsession.
I'm going to be completely honest with you, I found these heart shaped sprinkles in my cupboard and thought to myself...
"These will make them valentines doughnuts, which will make me a proper blogger, blogging seasonally and all that".
I smugly sprinkled the hearts on, and then remembered it was the 23rd February and Valentines day has long gone. FAIL!
I may fail at being a proper blogger, but I win at doughnuts.
