RE: Virtual Donuts, I'm Buying!!
Make mine a crueller! That could mean alot of different types of donuts, but to me, it can mean only one thing! The cruellers I made at a grocery store bakery where I used to work. Take the donut dough we used for the raised donuts, roll it out on the sheeter (When done, it would be about 36-40" wide, by about 20-25' long. To this, add enough butter to choke a horse, and fold it over, continue rolling in the sheeter, until the butter is thoroughly incorporated. Fold to app 2'x1'x8" thick. Let chill in cooler over night. The next day, re-roll on the sheeter until it is the original size, then roll out onto the work table, add lots of superior quality cinnamon, and fold over twice, until you are left with a piece app 25' long, by app 12" wide. This would be cut into several dozen cruellers, which would go into the proof box, until raised about 1&1/2 times their original size. Once proofed, they then would go to the fryer, pass through the glazer, and finally, get dipped into a peanut crunch topping!
