Homer Simpson Donuts
Mmm...donuts. -Homer Simpson
One of my New Year's resolution is to eat out less and eat more homemade food. For most people, this resolution would naturally result in eating healthier; for me, it means donuts. My take on cooking and baking is this: If you're going to use time and resources to make something, go all out. I don't believe in adapting recipes to make them healthier. I believe that two donuts is always better than one donut, and that sprinkles are like confetti for your tastebuds so we should pour instead of sprinkle them.
ChefSteps (link) has been the most reliable source of recipes lately. There are so many steps involved that I was sure I'd mess up on at least a handful (I'm known for skimming through recipes and missing crucial ingredients or skipping steps), but to my surprise, the donuts came out perfectly fluffy and delicious. They still don't compare to Safeway donuts (the holy grail, in my opinion) because they became flat and hard the next day. That's when we decided to share with our friends. :)
