I’m pretty much a fan of any kind of doughnut (except baked doughnuts, which are really just muffins baked into doughnut shapes people!), but my absolute favorite kind is a sugar doughnut. Give me a big, yeasty doughnut fried and dredged in granulated sugar and I’m a happy girl.
They probably seem like they’d be really complicated, but they’re not actually that hard to make at home, especially if you follow this recipe from expert-at-everything Alton Brown. We’ve made several batches, and have had stellar results every time. Do yourself a huge favor and try them this weekend! And sorry they’re aren’t any pictures of a huge pile of sugary doughnuts; they never seem to stick around long enough to be photographed!
