Today is Great British Bake Off day! Yay! And tonight’s theme is advanced dough and they are making donuts, so I figured today is the best day to post these yummy treats! This isn’t my entry for advanced dough week, I have something else planned for that. These are just to celebrate it being Wednesday aka GBBO day! If you watch tonight’s episode, I’d love to hear your thoughts on who baked well and the choices of star baker and who got sent home!
I love donuts. Who doesn’t love donuts? Are there people in the world that don’t like happiness? Anything is possible I guess! I have made baked donuts before, which were yummy but let’s be honest with ourselves, nothing beats the real fried dough! I’d never made real donuts because frankly I was terrified of all that hot oil, I’m the kind of person that falls UP the stairs so I thought if I was in charge of that much hot oil I’d end up burning my face off somehow. But then Stephanie at The Cozy Cook posted her glazed donuts and everything changed! I was drooling over her photos and just couldn’t resist her literal mountain of donuts and decided to throw caution to the wind and give them a go, after some advice from her!
