I have unleashed a great evil upon the world.
 
Last night, I created something, a monster, a thing too terrible for words...

A jelly donut.
At home.
And it was easy.

Thus assuring the end of mankind as we know it.
Or perhaps just my diet, it's too soon to say.

So, talk to me about donuts, TPT. Have you ever made them? What's your favorite kind? When was the last time you had one? I MUST KNOW.

My cholesterol level just jumped up a few points.

You have no idea, man. I had some left over dough that I made donut bites/holes with, by the end of the night, I had eaten over half of them without realizing it. D:

Whatever you do, don't look at this recipe. 8(

We seem to be making these for our Sunday breakfast every week:

Baked cake donuts

You have been warned. Though, being baked, they aren't anywhere near as bad for you, but taste awesome. So far I've done powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, maple glazed, and chocolate glazed. Also did a batch of chocolate donuts with chocolate glaze -- much recommended.

I feel I should add to this story -- a few days before Christmas, my husband and I were out shopping and passed by a display of bakeware. I commented how I wanted to get a donut pan to use with a recipe I'd found.

Christmas day comes and I go into the kitchen to start the oven for the ham, and my husband suggests I have a look in there first. So I did, and there is a wrapped gift -- a donut pan. Apparently Santa ordered it and had it sent overnight, just so he could wrap it and put it in the oven for me to find. :P

*Breathes heavy sigh of relief...* Thank god for yeast. I truly have no patience for yeast... I mean, if I'm going to break out the yeast, I might as well make pizza dough while I'm at it. Pizza dough...
doughnuts.....pizza dough......
.... doughnuts...pizza.....dough.....nuts...omg *runs off screaming to the pantry...*

Stuff a Reeses in it and microwave it for a couple of seconds.

I love NSHP D:
My first plan was actually to make that recipe, only with mini bundt pans since I don't have a donut pan, but none of my mini pans were to be found.

If I had some I'd totally fill a couple with warm nutella.

If this is a great evil, I do not dare to think what Krispy-Kream is...

Momotaro 02-06-2011 04:46 PM

Give me a homemade or a good bakery jelly any day over that mass produced crud!

Jelly/Nutella donut? Brilliant!

I have made beignets:

But try not to do so often. I refuse to look at any recipe, because then there is nothing stopping me from making this from what I already have in my kitchen. At least if I must get a beignet mix from the store, that's an additional chance to talk myself out of it.

I'm going to go now, and try to forget all about the idea of donuts filled with Gnutella. ;)
