The best donuts that I have ever eaten bar-none were from Seattle’s Top Pot Doughnuts. Now, doughnut aficionados everywhere can enjoy these tasty treats at home. Committed bakers, casual home cooks, and sweet-toothed fans will eat up these 50 tried-and-true recipes—from classic Old-Fashioneds to the signature Pink Feather Boa—and become experts themselves after learning the secrets of doughnut-making tools, terms, and techniques (no, you don’t need a deep fryer). And the selections of toppings and glazes, from chocolate to lavender? That’s just icing on the doughnut.
The 144 page book entitled Top Pot Hand-Forged Doughnuts: Secrets and Recipes for the Home Baker is written by the owners, Mark and Michael Klebeck. The photographs are by Scott Pitts, a Seattle-based blogger and freelance writer. Look for this donut bible on shelves in October 2011.
