5.0 von 5 Sternen O!-M!!-G!!! - To DIE for! 24. September 2011
Von Grandma - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
When I was a girl almost every town in New England of any size had a donut shop, each with their own specialties, and what donuts those were! Nora's Bakery turned out the most stunning cream filled donut - square, with just the teeniest dusting of powdered sugar. Adam's Donuts produced both apple and cherry filled donuts. Some days you had to choose. A donut shop I no longer remember the name of out in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, was famous for their Boston Cream Donuts, which they claimed to have invented. And of course there were hundreds more. But then came the national chain and slowly but surely all of those donut shops went out of business. At first all the chain-store donuts - dozens of varieties - were made right in the store, fresh every four hours, and you could stand at a window and watch them being made. Over the years, though, the donuts were made just once a day, then only at certain centralized shops for several chain donut stores. These days who knows when those chain-store donuts were made - or where. The last box I stopped for cost most of a $10 bill and every one of them was stale, so I was delighted to see Top Pot Hand-Forged Doughnuts: Secrets and Recipes for the Home Baker and couldn't wait to order it. As luck would have it, the book arrived on the very same day that I fetched home a great big bag of the very first of this year's crop of New England apples.

If I do have one quibble with this book - and I do - it is that I had to spend a good hour or so hunting for my reading glasses in order to read the directions, but the results I had were well worth the hunt. As I sit here typing at 6:30 in the morning, I'm munching on the most luscious Apple Fritter I've had in years - straight from my own kitchen, courtesy of Hand-Forged Doughnuts. This is one of the two most "complicated" recipes in the book and it was as easy as 1-2-3. I will admit I made some substitutions. I was out of mace, so I used nutmeg. And here in New England we think Maple goes with everything, especially apples and pumpkin, so I used real Vermont Maple syrup in the glaze rather than corn syrup - I try pretty hard to avoid corn syrup. The results are STUNNING! I wish I had a camera handy to show you a picture. Better yet, you should smell them - or taste them. Best donuts, doughnuts - however you spell them - I have had in years and years. I've already had requests for a delivery of those Apple Fritters. Unfortunately, they are half gone, so I guess I'll have to make another batch!

If you love doughnuts, grab yourself a copy of Top Pot Hand-Forged Doughnuts: Secrets and Recipes for the Home Baker. You may not turn out two dozen varieties a day, but your donuts will be scrumptious!

Highly recommended, despite the fine print!

A Few Notes:

You'll find recipes for two dozen varieties of donut, plus a few extras like Doughnut Bread Pudding, Baked Raised Doughnuts and even a couple of varieties Gluten Free Doughnuts and of course a wide variety of frostings and glazes. Each recipe makes one dozen donuts.

The authors state that the recipes for cake and old-fashioned varieties of donut are easily doubled but not the raised ones. I would take exception to the later statement. I had no problem handling a single batch of the Apple Fritters, a raised donut, with my Cuisinart HM-70 Power Advantage 7-Speed Hand Mixer, Stainless and White and could have easily doubled or even tripled the batch with my 6 quart Kitchen Aid. I would suggest that you consider the size and power of your mixer when deciding whether you can double a batch.

Ateco makes some of the sturdiest cutters around, some of which have been in my kitchen for more than 40 years. You might want to pick up both the Ateco 3-1/2-Inch Stainless Steel Doughnut Cutter and the Ateco 2-1/2-Inch Stainless Steel Doughnut Cutter mini while you're shopping. Both are eligible for Super Saver Shipping.

Finally, if you want to produce Baked Doughnuts, you will need a special pan. Here are several to choose from, all also eligible for free Super Saver Shipping.

Norpro 6-Count Nonstick Donut Pan
Norpro 3980 12-Count Nonstick Mini Donut Pan
Wilton Nonstick 6-Cavity Donut Pan
Wilton Nonstick 12-Cavity Mini Donut Pan

And if you are in a playful mood you might enjoy Wilton's Nonstick 6-Cavity Heart Donut Pan. If only they were pumpkins! Never mind, I'll just make Top Pot Hand Forged Doughnuts Pumpkin Donuts, frost them with maple and pile on the sprinkles!

3.0 von 5 Sternen a big disappointment from a vision standpoint 13. Juli 2012
Von Texaswomyn - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I've waited a month to write this review because I wasn't sure how I wanted to do it. What does a recipe book review look like? Is it strictly the quality of the recipes, or do aesthetics count, too? I bought this book for one recipe only - the old fashioned doughnut. I love those from the doughnut shops, and I thought it would be wonderful to be able to make my own. All the other recipes would be a bonus.

However, upon receipt of the book, I found that the type is in a pale gray ink, in a small point font. I am what some people would call elderly (I don't quite feel that way, however) and wear reading glasses. To try to read the recipe I also got a magnifying glass and stood under the brighest light I could find. The fractions were impossible for me to read clearly and that may be why that recipe for old fashioned doughnuts didn't turn out very well.

I haven't tried another recipe because I can't read them. I just don't understand why publishers sacrifice function for form. What's wrong with black ink and a larger font? I've thought seriously about photocopying it enlarged to about 150%; perhaps then it would be legible.

If you have excellent vision then you may be able to make outstanding doughnuts from this book. As published, I can't.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Doughnuts and a lot less trouble than you think 29. Januar 2012
Von J. Fulton - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The recipes in this book are great. I have made one of each type of doughnut in the book and each have been different and delicious. If you are not already aware, these are the Starbucks doughnuts. Or, more specifically, the Old Fashioned doughnut in this book is the same recipe as Starbucks glazed doughnut (and the book mentions that they make doughnuts for Starbucks). But that is as far as the comparison goes because a fresh hot doughnut is ten times better and more enjoyable than something sitting behind a glass cabinet for a day. In fact, that is really what this book is all about-the difference between eating a doughnut that is fresh and hot from the oil, glaze still dripping down the sides and one that has been sitting in a case in a store for some unknown amount of time. If you have access to a doughnut shop where you can reliably get a doughnut that is fresh and warm from the fryer then you may not find homemade doughnuts worth your time. But if you have no idea what I am talking about in terms of warm doughnut and are willing to invest a little time, then homemade doughnuts are worth it.

The book emphasizes three basic kinds of doughnuts, and I have made all three: (a) cake doughnuts, (b) yeast raised doughnuts (a traditional glazed), (c) old fashioned doughnuts (the Starbucks doughnut). It then offers a bunch of variations on each theme. Cake doughnut variations include different flavorings for the doughnut itself, including chocolate, spicy, coconut, lemon, etc. plus a variety of topping suggestions. Yeast/traditional glazed include different shapes and also apple fritters. Old fashioned include different topping ideas.

Here are my thoughts after having made cake doughnuts, glazed yeast doughnuts, apple fritters, and old fashioned.
1. Overall there are a few tweaks to each recipe that are worth keeping in mind. First, the Ateco doughnut cutters sold on Amazon don't match the sizes recommended in the book. If you buy the 2.5" cutter, doughnuts are smaller than the book recommends, so the cook a little faster and make a few more than the recipe indicates. You can use biscuit cutters to make a larger size doughnut, its really not a big deal.
2. You must have a thermometer for oil temp. Different doughnuts in the book cook at different temps. A $10 thermometer is key.
3. The recipes are surprisingly easy and involve little work to make the dough. Each dough can be made in 15 minutes or so. And each dough can go in the fridge overnight, making an early morning doughnut much easier to get ready. In total, I typically spent 15 minutes making dough, then into a bowl and into the fridge. The next morning, while the oil heats (about 20-30minutes heating over medium), I roll out the dough and cut the doughnuts. Then 10-15 min to fry the whole batch, doing 2-4 doughnuts at a time. Then a couple minutes to glaze, often while the next batch is cooking. And its done.4. There are a few tips and tricks to make things a little easier that are not covered in the book.
5. The single hardest part of making doughnuts is getting the doughnuts into the oil without damaging their shape.

Cake doughnut observations:
The cake doughnut batter is the softest and stickiest in the book. It *almost* pours. This makes cutting this doughnuts and getting them into the oil really difficult. Use lots of flour on the counter, on the dough, on the cutter. Lots of flour! don't skimp or it will stick to everything. The book suggests "shaking the flour extra flour off the doughnuts before frying but that is impossible. The raw cake doughnuts can't be picked up, the doughnuts will just fall apart. Transport the doughnuts to the oil using a spatula, metal bench scraper etc.
Here is my suggestion based on my experience - cut the doughnuts then shake the cut doughnut out of the cutter right onto your spatula and then put directly into the oil rather than precutting all the doughnuts. Get a couple of spatulas and/or a helper but this way avoids having the doughnuts fall apart or get squished from too much handling.

Yeast doughnut and apple fritters.
These doughnuts rise massively on their second rise so give them tons of space on the cookie sheets. In fact, I recommend using 3 sheets or as many as will fit in your oven (the proofing box) so that you don't have crowding. They recommend cutting the doughnuts and doing a second rising on a floured cookie sheet but I found the flour did not stop the doughnuts from sticking to the cookie sheet. In the process of scraping the doughnut off the cookie sheet, it deflated like a popped balloon. Now, they doughnuts did "reinflate" in the oil but still, it was depressing to fight to get the doughnuts off the cookie sheet and watch them shrivel up and collapse.
My fix (which I later used on the apple fritters) is this:
Cut parchment paper squares, about 4x4 or 5x5 or so. When you cut each doughnut or apple fritter for its second rise, place it on its own square of parchment paper with a bit of flour underneath. Then when its time to move doughnuts from the cookie sheets into the hot oil, just slide parchment paper onto your hand and carefully invert the doughnut into the oil or onto your spatula and then into the oil. This avoids scraping doughnuts that are stuck to the cookie sheet. If it sticks to the parchment, you can peel the paper away from the inverted doughnut, which does not deflate them as badly.
This worked great.

Old fashioned. These were a lot easier to keep form after cutting. The dough is stiffer than the others but less sticky. I was able to cut and transfer doughnuts much easier than the other kinds of doughnuts.

A word on glazes and icings. The recipe is simple and literally take a minute to make. You must sift the sugar! I put a metal wire mesh strainer inside a mixing bowl and put it on the scale. Then I weigh the sugar into the strainer and then, once weighed, just sift it right into the bowl below by tapping the wire strainer agains the sides of the bowl.

Most important, the glaze is warm and goes on warm doughnuts, meaning that you can eat a warm doughnut with warm glaze just minutes after it cooks. This for me was the the whole point!
But for icings, they suggest letting the doughnuts cool and the icing stay warm. My experience was that the icing needed to cool some too. Hot icing even on a cooled doughnut just ran down the sides like a glaze. But when I let the icing cool and stiffen up a bit then it tended to sit on top and not melt down the sides. Its easy to rewarm the icing if it gets too thick. And their glaze and icing recipes make plenty for each batch. The downer is that the doughnut is cool for icing purposes and I really like them hot. But they were still worlds better than anything at the store.

My favorite was the apple fritters. Very easy to make, very easy to shape. The apples help the fritters keep their form. Taste was superb and you can eat them warm. Wow! This experience alone is worth the book.

Overall, if you are comfortable with deep frying, then homemade doughnuts are simply not that much work for a great end result.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fabulous Doughnuts 2. Juni 2013
Von Teresa - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I have had the pleasure of visiting the Top Pot Doughnut shop in Seattle and the doughnuts were delicious.
I have tried various internet recipes for making donuts which all have yielded an heavy dense product nothing like what you get in a doughnut shop.
So I gave this book a shot.
I made the triple coconut cake doughnut. It was divine. They were a little difficult to handle due to such a wet sticky dough but I have to say they were the epitome of what a cake donut should be and were far better than 90% of the doughnut shops I've been to.
The directions though technical, are easy to follow but I will say that some degree of baking experience is really needed.
I would suggest a person watch some doughnut making videos on you tube to get a grasp of the process.
I do agree with others that the print could be better....larger and/or darker.
I will post a photograph of the finished product.
Thank you Top Pot for sharing your recipes

Update 6/11/13-I have now made the raised donuts, apple fritters and blackberry fritters. I made 6 round donuts with part of the raised dough and then used the scraps for the fritters which worked out perfectly. The less you handle the dough, the better your product will be and it's very difficult to get a good donut from the scraps. They were fabulous.
I did not use agar for the glaze but you really do not need it. I also made the coconut cake donuts again only this time I rolled the dough in a rectangle and cut it in 1 inch by 5 inch pieces and made donut sticks. I chilled them again before frying because they are much easier to handle. YUM!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent book for recipes and advice 15. September 2011
Von Matthew Senne - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I preordered this book while waiting in line for donuts (sorry, doughnuts) at the Top Pot on 5th Ave in Seattle. When it arrived I had already been missing their doughnuts for a few weeks and the photography nearly did me in by desire. They make great, absolutely delicious doughnuts but I haven't prepared any of the recipes from the book yet. I can tell you a few facts and opinions about the book itself:

-the recipes are clear and well referenced (e.g. "See page 29 for glazing tips")
-there are sections for every aspect of the doughnut making process (workspace, tools, resources, cakes, yeast-based, glazes, etc.)
-the photos are mouthwatering and well staged
-the book is well designed (aesthetically and functionally) and modern looking
-the cover is squishy!

What it adds up to is far more than a recipe book. This cookbook also has advice, tips and tricks that took years for professionals to discover. Top Pot Hand-Forged Doughnuts should be a bible to doughnut lovers and an inspiration to the masses that we can all produce confections that put Dunkin and Horton's to shame. More than merely telling you that you can, or that it would be worthwhile, this book shows you exactly how to bring your doughnuts dreams to fruition.
