It's February 27th in Ontario, Canada, which makes it the dead of winter. My daughter got me watching The Great British Baking Show over Christmas, and I viewed Series 5, Episode 8 online tonight. There were 3 different baking challenges for the 5 remaining passionate amateurs vying to be named the best baker in the United Kingdom, and the third challenge was - doughnuts! Each contestant made 2 different-flavoured doughnuts, and what a variety they came up with. Here's the link to the program so that you can see the doughnuts being made. But, beware! Watching this bake-off will probably lead to serious doughnut cravings. And where are you going to go to get doughnuts like these?
Luis made a cocktail doughnut in a glass with a shot of Baileys in the middle.
Nancy made children's chocolate doughnuts with cute faces and hung them on a tree.
Richard made heart-shaped doughnuts with a rhubarb-custard filling.
Chetna made a braided doughnut with a buttery, spicy glaze.
Martha made doughnuts with a chocolate & passionfruit filling plus a glazed lemon poppyseed.
