We bought the Krispy Kreme doughnuts in the beginning of the video at Penn Station. Normally, we'd advise you to never ingest anything that has at any point entered or left Penn Station (for your health and safety), but we always make an exception for Krispy Kreme. And this is solely because there is only one Krispy Kreme location in New York City. Join Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make a gourmet version of Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

    Krispy Kreme has never been my favorite donut but you can't get the good old fashion yeast donuts that you use to be able to get so they are about as close as you can get. Around 10 to 15 years ago everybody changed something and they just aren't the same. I think automation, freezing, preservatives, and stabilizers are the reasons. I think the only way you will ever get a good old fashion fried yeast donut is to make them yourself. I can't wait to try this recipe. My favorites are glazed, powered jelly-filled and chocolate frosted with nuts.

    Gregory suggested punching a hole in the middle of the fried cakes, so that the insides of the cakes would cook as evenly as the outsides. Experts believe that this reason makes sense, because of the way that donuts are cooked. ... Some people believe that the holes in donuts allowed them to be sold in a similar way.

    Oh and for best flavor for your icing, always make your own confectioners sugar. It’s really easy, just blend your sugar in a blender with a little cornstarch until it turns to powder, it should take a few seconds at most

    Oh and for shaping, to get a better donut, I would suggest rolling out a little thinner, like 25% thinner, and making the whole bigger. This allows for more even cooking, less big air bubbles, and more room to expand. It also cooks faster so you can control color better

  29. Faze Nicolas

    I would definitely suggest a mix of bread and all-purpose flour

    Throughout the video I had many thoughts on the dough. I believe one key ingredient in making the dough super soft is minimal kneading. For that dough to be so sticky and light, it must be because of high hydration resting instead of kneading the dough, which could result in a lighter dough because of less protein formation

    The roux she made is also known as a thangzong, popular in Japanese breads, where they gelatinize some of the flour with milk and cook it down to a paste. It really helps enhance the soft sponginess of your breads, good thoughts Claire!

    Funfact: Doughnuts without hole called "Berliner" in Germany, but not in Berlin. They call it "Pfankuchen" what translate to pancakes.

    When your making donuts you never want to twist the cutter because if you don't it causes air pockets which won't give you your fluffy donuts that you love and it won't give you that white Rim. But you did a fantastic job ☺

    I think you proved quite resoundingly that the extrusion of the krispy creme dough was significant to the end donut. There was no way you could replicate that extrusion which I think resulted in the evenness of air through the batter whilst it was cooking. I think your donuts looked amazing...props to you for not giving in it was interesting to watch I did think that perhaps a quick time in an air dryer before the frying might help to create the skin of the donut and create more of a seal trapping the air within the dough and hopefully producing a more even distribution of air pockets?

    I transcribed the Recipe if anyone wants it. Transcript Starts @36:22 Here's how you make gourmet Krispy Kreme donuts For the dough in the bowl of a large standing mixer fitted with a dough hook - combine 30 ounces all purpose flour - a half-ounce kosher salt - two ounces honey - one packet active dry yeast - four ounces unsalted butter cut into small pieces Make a well in the center. In a separate bowl, whisk - four ounces egg - two ounces honey - one ounce vegetable oil - one tablespoon of vanilla extract - 16 ounces tepid whole milk Pour liquid into the well, and mix on low until a shaggy dough forms, then increase the speed and continue mixing until the dough is very smooth and supple and no longer sticky. Gather the dough into a ball, flour it all over, and place it in a clean bowl, covered. Let it sit at room temperature until nearly doubled in size, then transfer to the refrigerator, and chill until cold, preferably overnight. Scrape the dough onto a floured surface, and roll out to a half-inch thickness, working quickly and flouring as needed to prevent sticking. Use two circle cutters to punch out 3 1/4 inch diameter donuts with a 1 1/4 inch cutout, fitting them as closely together as possible to maximize yield. Arrange each donut on its own square of parchment, and allow it to proof at room temperature until puffed, which could be as few as ten minutes. Fill a large dutch oven a third of the way up the sides with neutral oil, and heat to 326 Fahrenheit. Working in batches, fry the donuts, turning once until the donuts are golden brown all over except for a pale ring around the sides, three to four minutes. Let cool on a wire rack. For the glaze, combine - 600 grams powdered sugar - a pinch of kosher salt - two teaspoons vanilla extract - 30 grams of refined coconut oil - and 150 grams whole milk in a bowl, and whisk it till smooth. Pour slowly over the cold donuts, enrobing them completely. Let the glaze set at room temperature.
