Hi :) Lately, all I've been doing is finding different recipes for doughnuts.. first I used a local one that has a much less thick dough (a bit thicker than pancakes) than cake doughnuts.. but I still aren't satisfied, so I decided to try the original, yeast doughnuts.
First of all what I need is a good recipe. Most recipes for yeast doughnuts include dry, instant, active, this that yeast with 10 different names and a lot of conclusion.. Around here we only have the regular instant yeast but I am not sure if it's anything similar to the ones mentioned in the recipes. Second, the fat, we don't have shortening so I hope I can substitute butter or margarine? Finally, I am unsure about the dough, when I made the one for cake doughnuts it was too tough.. and I haven't done any other kneading (except for pizza dough years ago with help) so I don't know how exactly to knew this butter, sweet dough etc.. all tips accepted and please give me a good recipe.
Thank you :)
