OK, so my boss is toying with the idea of opening a second business down the road with the name of the game being specialty donuts.
So I was just curious if anyone has tried messing around with their tried and true cake recipes in order to convert it to a donut recipe?
From what I can tell, they look to be somewhat similar in make-up, with the addition of slightly more levener and less liquid.
I am definitely not an expert when it comes to recipe composition/ratios/chemistry though, so what do I know?!
Any thoughts? Any good cake or yeast donut recipes you would be willing to share?
Here is the only recipe on this site for donuts. Not sure about making cake batter into donut batter but I would be interested if anyone else has done it. I have heard of making a cake mix into donut batter though. Can't be too much different if doing it from scratch. There is a place in Virginia that decorates theirs as if they were cupcakes. They are extremely popular. Even featured in a magazine.
They have the little pans for baked donuts that you are supposed to bake cake in. They work great and are super good. It has been so long since I did it, that I forget if you are supposed to modify the batter. I left my pan in the drawer under the oven in my last apartment, when I moved 7 years ago :-(
Try Dawn...DDA...they have outstanding mixes. Seriously can't be beat. Donuts are a completely different animal though. Especially Yeast donuts.
Yeah, the two types of recipes are not interchangeable. Two different animals. I have also been researching doughnut recipes. Check out Amish recipes. Their doughnuts are mind-blowing. True story.
