Daring Bakers October Challenge: Doughnuts

Well, my first DB challenge is in the bag. The October 2010 Daring Bakers challenge was hosted by Lori of Butter Me Up. Lori chose to challenge DBers to make doughnuts. She used several sources for her recipes including Alton Brown, Nancy Silverton, Kate Neumann and Epicurious.

I had fun with this challenge, since I've always wanted to make doughnuts from scratch. I coated some with powdered sugar and some in cinnamon sugar(my personal fave).

I think they turned out pretty good, my hubby thought they were a bit heavy. I remember the first time I fried dough, it was biscuit dough from a tube. Yes, I know it might be frowned upon. So this time, I wanted to get it right. Stan would be proud :)

Hope you hang in there wih me. Ready for my next challenge.
