Most doughnut cookbooks consist mostly of fried doughnut recipes, with only a few baked ones thrown in. I had recently purchased a doughnut pan, and was looking for more recipes to use it with. I did a lot of searching online, and I believe this is one of only two books that are 100% baked doughnuts. The only other one I found was Baked Doughnuts For Everyone: From Sweet to Savory to Everything in Between, 101 Delicious Recipes, All Gluten-Free. The gluten free diet does not appeal to me, nor is it medically necessary for us, so I passed that one by and kept looking, and found this one.I have tried several of the recipes in it, and they turned out wonderfully. It's pretty hard to tell that they were baked and not fried. Buy this book and a doughnut pan, and you'll be all set!
Though I love to try different types of recipes for my kids, I never feel myself confident while I bake donuts. This book is just what I was looking for a time being. This recipe book gives some quick donut baking tips at the very beginning of the book, which are quite informative and helpful. Most of the recipes are easy and offer many substitutes of conscious and dietary choices. In addition, the authors classified different types of donut recipes into different categories, such as breakfast bites, chocolate haven, special occasion donuts, etc. Since authors also provided pictures of the most of donuts, it's very helpful for any reader to choose which recipe he/she wants to try. I made Buttermilk Pineapple donuts just today, and it was really yummy. This recipe book is an excellent inclusion in my cookbook collection. I believe if you try donut recipes from this book, you wouldn't be disappointed.
What a ridiculously delicious book. I've never made donuts before and really only thought of them in two varieties - powdered or glazed. This book has opened up a world of possibilities. There are over 100 recipes including breakfast bites, fruit/veggie donuts, chocolate, and lots of special holiday donuts as well. These are all baked donuts so no intimidating deep-frying to deal with. The recipes are well-written and easy to follow. I'm so excited for the Easter donuts we'll be making in the next few weeks - I know the kids will love. And I can't wait till Halloween when we'll try the chocolatey spider donuts (ok, maybe we won't wait that long)!
This is the first time I've been disappointed enough with an purchase to write a review, and I buy from all the time.First of all, the pictures in this book are tiny and black and white. I realize that they were also black and white in the preview online, but the online pictures seem to be a much better quality. Most of the pictures look very similar to each other in the book and I think it would've been better had they left them out entirely. My imagination would be much better than those pictures.Secondly, nowhere in the description of this book does it mention that there are a significant number of vegan, gluten-free, and lightened up recipes in this book. Probably at least half of the recipes are for people with specific dietary needs. For some people, that is a great quality. However, that is not what I was looking for. In fact, I chose this book over "Baked Donuts For Everyone" because I didn't want to deal with gluten free or other dietary specific recipes. I don't keep rice flour or potato starch on hand, and I'm not going to purchase it when I only need 1/4 cup for a recipe.In conclusion, despite the pictures, this would be a great book for someone that A) wants to make donuts for someone with dietary restrictions, or B) keeps a variety of uncommon flours on hand, but it is not a great book for someone that is looking for basic donut recipes using common ingredients.
Disappointing. There were far too many ingredients that were out of reach for many of us. I think I found 6 that used ingredients that I have on hand. There were also a lot of typos that made me question the accuracy of the recipes themselves. I am very glad that I just borrowed it - and did not purchase it!
The recipes are often unclear and there is no index (just a listing of the names of the recipes). The grouping is not very intuitive either. That said, this book has some very good recipes (I have made many of them) and I keep it handy in my kitchen so I can whip up some doughnuts when we want them. Worth buying, but you need to have a working knowledge of cooking and not care too much about the lack of organization.
Just got the book, haven't tried a recipe yet. I am a professional baker, and I don't trust this book. I will try the recipes and update my review. So far, the very first recipe for cinnamon coated donuts, starts out well, normalish yeast donut recipe cinnamon coated donuts "this donut goes well with a cup of coffee at breakfast time. Enjoy thr sweet coating which is well complimented by the pastry" with a picture of a yeast, ring donut with cinnamon sugar coating (very bad grey scale picture).Flour, sugar, yeast, milk, butter, egg, mince meat?!!!!This is where it goes off ,with the mincemeat. The instructions have a normal yeast donut mixing/proofing, then the shaping tells you to make a mincemeat filled ball and bake at 190 degrees Fahrenheit?!I understand that other countries may like mincemeat cinnamon donuts for breakfast (doubt it) , but this was just horrible editing error and now I don't trust this book at all.Its a shame, because if someone would've proof read the thing, it could be a nice addition to my baking books.Shame, and will be returning
