  1. Which donut would you like to re-create in class?

I would like to re-create Long Johns in class. It use modified straight dough method. It needs to be proof. Fry at 182℃. It also need coating chocolate to decorate.

After this week, I found that frying doughnuts is hazardous, we must pay attention on it. We made cronuts, regular doughnuts, Long John and Apple fritters. I really like cronuts which are made from Danish dough. It tastes crispy and the filling inside is pastry cream. Also, pay attention on mixing, if you overmix it, it becomes tough and dense. While we frying doughnuts, remember no flour, or the oil will break down(deterioration) .
