Bake Off Bake-Along #8 | Doughnuts

Do you fancy a laugh on this dreary Monday morning? Because I can pretty much guarantee you one with this post.

So I tried making doughnuts twice. Once fried and once baked. And both times they came out, quite frankly crap. So considered making them a third time, but I just don't have the energy for that right now. Maybe another time, when I have a craving for doughnuts, I'll try again but just not now.

The fried one (left), has a slight coating of glaze although to be honest, no matter how hard I tried, it wouldn't stay on so that's why I say slight. And the baked doughnut on the right just looks like a baby chew toy.

I'm well aware of the fact they don't look appetising in the slightest, and I seriously considered throwing these away before taking any pictures but that would be untruthful of me. I certainly suffer from my own fair share of baking fails and let this be a prime example of that.

Anyway, I hope that cheered you up on this very grey Monday morning, and wish me luck for my Schichten Torte, I think I'm owed a good week.
