I made donuts for the first time!
There are several donut recipes that I wanted to try in BabyCakes Covers the Classics, so it was really awesome that my thoughtful friend Shannon got me a donut maker for Christmas! I made my first batch of donuts using the chocolate cake donuts recipe. I substituted garbanzo bean flour for the suggested garbanzo and fava bean flour and corn starch for potato starch. I was going to dip them in vanilla sugar glaze, but the donuts tasted so nice on their own that I didn’t bother. They came out just a little crispy on the outside, and moist and cake-y on the inside.
And I think you guys deserve to see what most of the donuts looked like, since things don’t always turn out picture-perfect the first time. The first few were not as pretty as those two shown above!
A little ugly, but they still tasted delicious!
