August 27, 2014

Fat, oil and sugar. What's not to love? If you have ever taken a bite of a warm, sugary Krispy Kreme donut, you know how perfectly the flavors taste together. These donuts are a true delicacy, and anyone who has tasted one will agree. 

In fact, the donuts are so delicious when fresh and warm, that the Krispy Kreme stores are kind enough to have a sign that lights up to alert drivers that the next batch of donuts is ready and waiting. 

Although they are dreamy and wonderful at the store, you can make these delights at home with little effort other than the time it takes to allow the dough to rise. 

So, Krispy Kreme donuts are a yeast donut. This means they actually have a pillowy dough that has to be proofed before being cut, then allowed to rise again before being deep fried. This gives each donut a light and fluffy texture that is heaven. Here is how to make Krispy Kreme donuts at home. You are very, very welcome!
