After a year without any recipe, we are finally back with delicious food! Today we’ll start a new series of articles called “We Cook Books“. In this series, we’ll share with you some of our favorites recipes, from our favorite cookbooks. For the first recipe, we decided to bring you Buttermilk Doughnuts from the book Baked Explorations by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito.
These delicious doughnuts are just like the ones you might pick up at your local farm. Normally they are coated with cinnamon sugar, and this is exactly the way we like to eat them. This recipe is easy to make, and it’s perfect for the people who love cakier doughnuts like us. After you try this recipe you’ll not want to go back to the store-bought doughnuts.
