I Don’t Like Doughnuts – well, I didn’t used to like doughnuts. The doughnuts I remember being force-fed at school were long and thin (in the shape of a hot-dog bun), deep fried to a very dark brown, coated in sugar, had fake cream piped on top and some red stuff in them (may have been jam). They tasted like a deep fried washing up sponge. They put me off dough-based products for life.
But recently I discovered gluten-free, vegan doughnuts. I bought one in a shop. It was okay!!! I wasn’t in love with it (it was quite small and had a pink topping) but I was less wary of doughnuts. Then I decided I might be missing out and went a little bit doughnut making crazy. I worked on two recipes.
Now, I like doughnuts. Quite a lot!
What are Doughnuts Really???
I guess the easy description of doughnuts (or donuts) are – deep fried rings of dough. But, once you start thinking a bit wider and think about the current fashion (fad?) for baked doughnuts, and all the different types of deep fried dough that are not called doughnuts – like churros, that description isn’t adequate. Here is what I have gleaned from a bit of research and a bit of thought….
Usually with a hole.
May be filled (jam, custard, chocolate).
May have a topping.
Go with coffee.
That has cleared up what doughnuts usually are, or might be!
