First Daring Baker's Challenge - Donuts!

I finished my first daring baker's challenge! It was a late submission because I was timing it with my work's Halloween baking contest. I enjoyed this challenge because it definitely got me out of my comfort zone and into deep frying and candy thermometers. People often commented about the square shape. This was done due to practical reasons. I wanted to get the most donuts for the dough (since it was for a contest), and I didn't have round cutters readily available. Hence easy square shapes!

I am also just starting this blog, so it's a work in progress. Stay tuned for upgrades. :)


  1. Hello and welcome to the Daring Bakers' and congratulations on your first very successful challenge. Your square doughnuts look delicious and such an interesting shape lovely colour on them. Cheers from Audax in Sydney Australia.
