i'm finally making donuts - i have an aversion to cooking with yeast, and am determined to learn how to do it properly.
so i plan on serving them to guests tomorrow night. the first round of rising says to let rise for an hour an a half. i'd love to make the dough tonight - is there a problem letting it rise overnight?? (so many recipes say to let rise overnight).
my other question is if i can let it rise overnight, does it have to be on the counter? After a previous pest incident in my building, i triple wrap everything before putting it away, never leaving food out on the counter. (gotta love city living...) can i rise in te refrigerator?
ended up making the whole thing today... they are rising for the second time now, 4:00... will be done rising at 5, and company is coming at 6. so i will fry them as soon as im done frying the latkes....giving them time to cool and drain a little before dessert and to be coated in powdered sugar... cant wait...
