Epic Doughnut Fail
I diligently followed the instructions on the box and I made up both recipes (one a cake doughnut and one a yeast doughnut). As the oil was heating, I announced to everyone at home that very shortly we would be eating the best tasting doughnuts ever!
The oil was finally at 375 degrees, so I gingerly released a small amount of dough into the oil with my handy dough dispenser....
...and the contents of the fryer boiled up and over all over the stove spilling boiling hot oil EVERYWHERE. The dough separated into a thousand tiny fragments. No doughnut shape, nothing even resembling a doughnut!
Mercifully, I'm not injured, but my stove took a kicking. I had to pull out my back up paper towels as there was no way that I could wipe up that amount of oil with a rags and rinse it down the drain into the septic tank.
Have YOU ever successfully made doughnuts at home? DO share!
