"Made to Order" Doughnut question
I have made the dangerous discovery that a freshly fried homemade raised doughnut freezes well. Shockingly well. I just let them thaw and come to room temp, but I suspect they could be successfully refreshed with a brief run through a hot oven, too. Only if you don't have stuff on them that would melt and slide off, though.
Be careful. Having fresh homemade doughnuts available whenever you want...
Making donuts in deep fry fat or oil is relatively an easy process. Just mix the batter with eater between 70-72* if I recall correctly. You could also make them with cake batter in an electric pan, similar to a George Foreman Grill.
with yeast raised donuts specific though, I believe the temperature should be raised to 78* and it should be proofed for a minimum 45 minutes...up to 1.5 hours.
