Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts

Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts

I've never made yeast doughnuts before, but to my surprise, my very first attempt turned out GREAT! :D
Though there were a couple of negative reviews, I think this recipe is excellent.

Today I didn't glaze them, but next time I'll definitely go for it. Mmmmm....
(The bigger ones in the photo were filled with pastry cream.)

Funny, I had the urge to make Berliner (jam filled yeast donuts dusted with powdered sugar) this weekend.

It's close to Fasching (Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday, etc). When I was a student in Germany, the bakeries in Germany are usually filled with them around this time of year, sometimes really cheap if you buy them after four pm or so. So I had a craving.

It turns out I was too lazy to do the preparation last night... I should have started the dough at night and retarded it in the refrigerator. Maybe next weekend :)

They look good! What did you fill them with? I like custard or red bean paste. Once I got a little crazy and mixed custard with red bean paste. Bliss!

Woooooo, jam filled yeast doughnuts sounds so yummy. That must be related to your precious memories of your days in Germany. Enjoy the doughnuts next weekend! :D

Yeah, that Japanese is perfect. Thanks for the compliment. Very often, though, my food looks much better than it tastes. :P

Thank you. : )

I filled most of them with pastry cream. Custard with red bean paste sounds good. In fact I saw an anpan filled with custard, whipped cream and red bean paste the other day, so I don’t see why it shouldn’t be in doughnuts.

Hahaha… sorry, it’s all my fault. Maybe one of these days I’ll post a work-out exercise to make up. ;)

Yep! And those plump ones were so crispy on the outside and creamy inside… Mmmmm..!!
