Doughnuts or Donuts either way you spell it, they are one of the most popular desserts in the world. This week I made these absolutely delicious double chocolate frosted donuts.

Double chocolate frosted donuts

When I was doing my research on fried Donut recipes and which Donut was the best, yeast or cake donuts? It was very 50/50 on this subject. So, I did a bit of research on krispy kreme Donuts as they are very well known for their deliciousness, and although they do make yeast free cake donuts most Krispy Kreme doughnut varieties are made of the same yeast-raised dough recipe. So that helped me to decide to make my double chocolate frosted donuts recipe today. I do think I’ll try making a fried yeast free cake Donut recipe just to test for myself which one I think is the best. To cook your donuts you will need to use a pot of oil or the safer option a deep fryer. Deep fryers are the far better option as they automatically maintain the cooking temperature of the oil which helps you get consistant results every time.

Donut History

Here's a little bit of Donut history for you. The humble Donut originally arrived with the Dutch when they settled in New York or New Amsterdam and were called olykoeks or "oily cakes”. Because olykoeks are a delicious and popular dessert, they're now sold worldwide. But for obvious reasons, I can see why they changed the name to Donut as oily cake doesn’t sound like a nice dessert to eat.

There are no Krispy Kreme or Dunkin Donuts near me. So when I want delicious and super easy to make Donuts, I have to make them myself from scratch. I made so many homemade Donuts over the past few weeks testing new recipes and topping ideas, I probably could of started my own donut shop with a Donut delivery service to boot lol.

Equipment Needed To Make Donuts

You don’t need a Donut maker or a special Donut cutter to make this type of fried Donut. You can use two different size cutters. If you don’t have a small round cutter for the centers, you can use a cap from a drinks bottle, it’s the perfect size for the Donut holes. But if you are looking to buy a donut cutter this one on Amazon is a great price and has great reviews too.
