How to make fluffy and  crisp donuts 

These donuts are the lightest and fluffiest l have ever made. I even customized my decor. Hot and crisp donuts . Kids best of all time. Once you have mastered the basic rwcipe to achieve fluffiness is quiet easy- peasy. There is a secret behind the yeast. Ince you master that you can make anything fluffy. 

I have realized that donuts are made in different ways across nations and continents. We have so many donut recipes and we have donuts in different shapes and sizes. We can also decorate donut with frostings of different colors and flavours. I find that very amazing and adventurous. 

In west Africa, the round shape dinuts are very common, in Australia the super decorative donuts are common. In Westfield a certainlady has customized her donut style. I just love her decorative sense. 

I coated some with glaze. I coated some with a golden cinnamon crusts and the all jump for joy after the decor. I glazed others with chocolate and used food coloring too. Isn’t it amazing !
