Everyones Favourite : Doughnuts

Atleast in my house... Yeah I am talking about doughnuts :D.

I had learned making them in the baking course but never made them post that, in october when daring bakers were making it I so wanted to make mine too but was just too busy with many things... so when Ojas came and told me he wants doughnuts for this party I was like why not :D So I made a small quantity a week before the party as a trail and it was yummy... soft and fluffy as its supposed to be... everyone in the the house loved them.

    7. Alternative you can knead the dough with your hands too, knead just enough to form a nice smooth dough I think it would take about 7-10 minutes.
    8. Make a ball of the dough and keep in a large greased bowl for raising.

    This recipe is something that I have made up by combining the best of both the daring bakers recipe and the recipe I got from my institute the doughnuts came out really really soft. And I loved the addition of cardamom and saffron that I picked up from Meeta's version

    However a word of caution if u want to store it for a day or two store it in an airtight container without the glaze. I made it again for the party one day in advance and forgot to put in an air container and they had lost some of the softness.

    And my doughnuts are off to a very cute event Dishes Starting with the name D

    And also to Yeastspottin
