My dad and I love this show on the Cooking Channel called Unique Sweets. In case you’ve never seen it, all these chefs and pastry chefs visit the most ridiculous bakeries around the country and try all of their insane baked goods. While they feature bakeries of all kinds, there are a LOT of doughnuts on that show. A. Lot.
I made these doughnuts about the same time I made the Funfetti Hi-Hat Cupcakes I shared on Monday, and I’ve been dying to show you these ever since! I was trying to think crazy doughnuts I could make, and visions of doughnuts covered in toasty meringue and filled with lemony goodness totally came to me.
My homemade doughnuts? Totally ugly. Haha:) It’s true though. They weren’t smooth and were actually kind of bumpy looking? Um, yeah.
But I was going to cover them in meringue, so that was fine. Then I wanted to try the biscuit version just because I’ve seen it on the interwebz a few times, and my mom said my grandma used to make them that way all the time.
The verdict: both very tasty! I mean, they’re doughnuts. But because the biscuit dough was already perfectly formed, those did end up looking better.
