Chris Makes Doughnuts | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 17 June 2019
  • Join Chris Morocco in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as he makes lemony glazed yonuts (yes, that’s a Greek yogurt doughnut). We set out to make a Greek doughnut, we really did. We tried and we tried, and when it wasn’t working, we switched to Greek yogurt. Adding yogurt to the batter for these cake doughnuts made them light, tangy, and rich, and gave us a dough that was easy to work with.

    Why is everyone at bon appetit adorable? Is that a job requirement? Even the people off camera are gorgeous.

          So that's what they do on the other 3 counters behind, they experiment recipes till it's good enough to film it.

                    I'm a new BA fan and although i'm totally digging brad's fun style and claire's stages of grief (lol), i'd have to say that i'm very much enthralled by chris, i have to watch this video several times solely because i tend to get too into watching him and miss out on the subject he is discussing at that moment, lmao orz

                              It’s comforting to know that even a professional cook sometimes accidentally explodes his butter

                                                The entire recipe (ingredients + method) is on their Bon Appetit website :) but regardless, here you go->


                                                2½ tsp. baking powder

                                                2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting

                                                1 tsp. kosher salt, plus more

                                                2 large egg yolks

                                                1 cup whole-milk Greek yogurt

                                                ½ cup granulated sugar

                                                2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted, slightly cooled

                                                1 tsp. vanilla extract

                                                Vegetable oil (for frying; 6–8 cups)

                                                1 cup powdered sugar

                                                Zest from ¼ lemon

                                                Special Equipment

                                                A deep-fry thermometer

                                                  Just made these amazing "yo-nuts" today. And trust me, they were AMAZING! The lemon glaze was fantastic. But I did customize it to my preference (1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1 full lemon zest and 2-3 tbsp water. To the other 1/2 cup of sugar, I added 1 tbsp of cinnamon and made cinnamon sugar donuts). I did replace Greek yogurt with plain yogurt and because I live in a very hot region, my dough was really sticky and not as firm as Chris's. But I just added 1/4 - 1/2 cup of flour more and dusted my doughnuts really well. They were still real sticky even after popping them in the freezer. So I ended up hand-shaping them. They weren't the prettiest looking donuts but they looked super home-made and rustic! And all the uneven nooks and crannies made the donuts extra crispy. Honestly, I'm never ever going back to yeasted donuts ever again 😭💯

                                                  Tip: I would suggest serving these warm with some lemon tea or coffee 😊
