For our wedding, a couple of our friends got us a crazy fryer, so we got up early this morning and made donuts from scratch! Even though I worked in a bakery for more years than I care to remember, I've never been good with anything involving yeast (except for brewing beer, of course!), so we were pretty much prepared for a complete fiasco, but actually got beautiful, tasty donuts!
We used Alton Brown's recipe for yeast donuts, donut glaze, and chocolate donut glaze from the Circle of Life episode.
This was a really fun and satisfying to spend a Saturday morning as newlyweds, two days before taking off for our honeymoon, and one hell of a way to break in the fryer. :)
