So I’m back!

and I’ve brought doughnuts,

and.. a video… (wait, can you technically ‘bring’ a video? I’m ‘bringing’ it to your computer, I guess..)

how to make doughnuts-51

 

Last week was actually crazy. Oh my god I don’t even remember most of it. So many mock exams and stress.

I think if I was a computer it would be the equivalent of having Photoshop, Lightroom, Chrome (with 100 tabs open), iTunes and streaming TV,

ALL AT THE SAME TIME.

I think my brain needs more RAM;

or maybe it just needs doughnuts.

But I would be boring if I did all the doughnut making and then left them as just vanilla – right?

So I made them awesome.

Who wants sprinkles, when you can have crushed biscoff cookies and crispy bacon on a coffee glazed doughnut.

Coffee with your doughnut?

NAH IT’S FINE BRO

THERE’S COFFEE ON MY DOUGHNUT

(although, let’s be honest here, I totally still drank coffee with them)

how to make doughnuts-124

To be precise – I managed to have a total of 6 cups of coffee over the two days that I made + shot these doughnuts on.

So, yeah.

Coffee + doughnuts are the power pairing of this weekend.

Sugar + caffeine were precisely what my soul needed after that week.

Crackly glaze, crumbs scattered everywhere, licking your lips and fingers.

Shameless.

how to make doughnuts-90

That’s what doughnuts should be about.

Just happy food.

Notes:

- Lara’s original recipe rests the dough in the fridge for 1-12 hours – I just let it rise on the counter for 1 hour instead.
- If you don’t have a doughnut cutter, and you can’t find a 1″ cutter, try using a piping tip, or like me the lid to something like a salt shaker
- To tell when the doughnuts have proved enough: gently poke the dough, it should spring back slowly.

 

Doughnuts

Serving Size: 12-14 doughnuts

recipe altered minimally from 'Doughnuts', by Lara Ferroni

3 tbsp active dried yeast
1 cup milk, warmed to 110 F (43 C)
2 1/2 cups bread flour
3 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
oil for frying

Combine 2 tbsp yeast, 3/4 cup milk and 1/2 cup flour in a medium bowl and let rest for 30 minutes in a warm place.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, with the paddle attachment fitted, combine the rest of the yeast and milk with the egg yolks, vanilla, salt and sugar. Add in the butter and 1/2 cup of flour - mix on low until incorporated.

Change to the dough hook, then knead in the rest of the flour - 1/4 cup at a time. Continue to knead until the dough is smooth and elastic. Transfer to an oiled bowl, cover and rest for 1 hour.

Roll the dough out on a floured surface until 1/2 inch thick. Cut out circles using a 3" cutter, and then a 1" cutter (see notes) to make the hole. Transfer the doughnuts (and doughnut holes) to a cookie sheet lined with a floured kitchen towel - spaced at least 1" apart. Re-roll the scraps and repeat the cutting + transferring.

Cover loosely with cling film and rest for 5-20 minutes (see notes).

Heat a 2 inch depth of oil to 360 F (180 C) in a deep, heavy bottomed pan. Use a metal spatula to transfer 2 or 3 proved doughnuts to the frying pan. Fry for 3-4 minutes until golden brown, flip and fry for a further 3-4 minutes. Remove from the oil using a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel. Repeat with the remaining doughnuts and doughnut holes. Let cool slightly then glaze.

Vanilla Glaze

recipe altered minimally from 'Doughnuts', by Lara Ferroni

3 cups powdered sugar
6 to 8 tbsp milk or water
2 tsp vanilla extract

Stir the ingredients together - I prefer using a shallow dish or you can use a smallish bowl.

Dunk the doughnut into the glaze, turn to coat (you may find using a spoon will help you completely coat the doughnut with glaze). Remove from the glaze (I use a chopstick to help) to a piece of baking paper and let the glaze set.

how to make doughnuts-91

For Coffee-Bacon-Biscoff Doughnuts

- coat the doughnuts in the vanilla glaze. Let set.
- slightly crush 6 or 7 biscoff cookies (I put them in a plastic bag and gently crushed them with a rolling pin)
- fry 5 or 6 rashers of bacon until crispy. Drain on paper towel, then use scissors to cut up into small pieces. Mix in with the crushed biscoff cookies.
- then glaze top with coffee glaze (just dissolve the instant coffee in the boiling water, add the milk and sugar):

For the coffee glaze
1 1/2 tsp instant coffee
2 tbsp boiling water
1 to 2 tbsp milk
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

- whilst coffee glaze is still wet, sprinkle on crushed biscoff cookies and bacon.

3.What edition software do you use to edit your photos/videos?

Thanks so much I really appreciate it!

You read my mind! I’ve been thinking about doughnuts all week. A co-worker and I were having a debate about doughnuts: light and airy or cakelike? Anyway, great post!

Izy May 4, 2013 at 1:19 pm

light and airy ALL THE WAY MAN! :)

Linda April 29, 2013 at 1:16 am

Izy, these look DELICIOUS! I have been craving simple glazed donuts something fierce for awhile now, and your Instagram shots yesterday only strengthened my desire. But can you believe that the only place in my neighborhood that sells them is Dunkin Donuts? I find that very disappointing. I must make my own. Thanks for the recipe.

Izy May 4, 2013 at 1:20 pm

I am literally bawling right now because IN Australia we do not have Biscoff. God these are pure fat kid food, but oh so needed. I love your photos, I wonder do you white balance your photos manually from the camera or when editing?

Reply

Izy May 4, 2013 at 1:27 pm

Nooooooo im sorryyyy :( That is exactly what they are omg
I shoot in raw and then correct the white balance in lightroom :) usually i make the lighting a LOT colder than what my camera records it as

Izy, GET OUT OF HERE. Your doughnuts look so freaking.amazing–like professional status. Do you ever come over to the States? You should definitely visit Gourdough’s in Austin if you do. Well, scratch that. If you’re making doughnuts like this at home, Gourdough’s might be totally unnecessary!

YOU ARE AMAZING.

Holy Doughnut Iz-Man…these are totes insane! Coffee, bacon, doughnut…truly you’d only find that combination in a far off galaxy run by little coffee men who ride magic carpets made of bacon? But no, it’s here on planet Earth. Tell you what…I’m excited. I have guests coming for brunch on Saturday…guess what food I’ll be serving them?

What an awesome video!! I can’t even imagine how many pictures and how much work it must take to put that all together! Swooning over the Pyrex too, especially that first bowl. (Which your fingernails totally match!) I adore those Cinderella bowls. I have a green nesting set, but I’ve always wanted to collect them in random patterns too. Unfortunately, I think I might need to rent a storage unit if I want to buy any more kitchen stuff. (I already starting storing things at Johnny’s apartment!)

OK, how have I not even talked about the doughnuts yet??! I’m so glad you fried them instead of baking them. I mean, if you’re going to cover a doughnut in sugar and cookie bits and bacon, you might as well go for broke and make them as 100% delicious as possible. (= There’s this vendor called Dinky Donuts at our summer market sometimes, and they will occasionally have doughnut that covered in peanut butter glaze, liberally drizzled in another chocolate glaze, then topped with big bits of bacon. OMG. Also, I think crumbling up cookie bits for doughnut (or anything) toppings is something that isn’t done nearly enough!!

Reply

Izy May 4, 2013 at 1:46 pm

Yay thanks Carey! haha yep, like 1000 photos literally, it takes about 4 hours to shoot and then another 4 of editing :/ The thing which takes me forever to do is choose the freakin music to go with it too!! AHH I love them, got loads at car boot sales :) hahaha, tell me about it, I’ve taken over about 4 cupboards for props so far…

That is exactly what I was thinking, might as well fry em, they’re supposed to be super indulgent so i just went for it! AHHH omg I wish I could get fresh doughnuts with awesome flavours here, but alas im stuck with krispy kreme. that’s it :( I KNOWWW, just imagine oreos on them :|

Wowsers! These doughnuts look ridiculously good, and the video is awesome. I’ve always been scared of trying to make traditional homemade doughnuts before, but you’ve definitely broken it down and made it look approachable. One question, what do you do with your leftover oil? I haven’t found a really good disposal method yet and it makes me less inclined to fry things.

btw your blog is a true gem. Been following for the last couple months and always look forward to seeing what you come up with next.

I use my parent’s method: pour the oil into an old jam jar, screw on the lid. Chuck it into the bin. Done! :)

Izy, you are officially the coolest person I know/have heard of. When I was 17, I think I was walking around the house eating sesame chicken from a Chinese container and wishing I was 18. I love what you’re doing here! And that is an intense mixer. It looks like a sewing machine!

That’s it! I was wondering what was happening to me. Now I know! My brain needs more RAM like yours :-) Such gorgeous doughnuts!

These doughnuts are magazine-worthy. Also love your subtle use of props – so tastefully done. Keep up the great work!

I think if you want to make gluten free doughnuts you’d have to find a different recipe. The dough for the doughnuts relies on the gluten found in wheat flour for strength and so it holds its shape, then the dough can rise and stay together. If you have a doughnut pan to make baked cake-style doughnuts, then I can point you to http://www.edibleperspective.com where you’ll find some gluten free baked doughnut recipes.
