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.

    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 😊

                              I'm going to ask you to do something kinda hard for a city boy. I want you to make this recipe with *clabbered milk* instead of yoghurt. Then clotted cream.
