Doughnuts are clearly a good thing. Very few days can't be enhanced without that combination of dough, filling and topping in a handy parcel of yumminess.

Making them at home is often seen as a challenge - but this book makes it clear that it really is not beyond the scope of most home bakers.


Although it is an American book, cup measurements are all given with a metric equivalent - so this should not be a barrier to getting stuck in! The vast majority of the ingredients are readily available from all supermarkets - which can sometimes be a challenge with some US titles.


The content is broken down to a solid introduction to the techniques and necessary equipment, some good base recipes (including gluten-free and vegan options), toppings and then some very tasty recipes for a range of sweet treats. All of the 'complete' recipes give you various options for bases from which to create your finished dish. Not all of them require deep-frying - I think many would be surprised at the range of oven-baked doughnuts you can create.

There are recipes from all round the world to explore alongside the more traditional styles and I must admit to have already selected a few to try. The Apple Cider doughnuts look yummy as do the Creme Brulee ones.

You don't need to be Homer Simpson to enjoy doughnuts!
