Last weekend there were lots of fried things, waffles, beers, chatting, and shopping. I went to Megan’s on Saturday and after a waffle breakfast and some browsing through Anthropologie and Paper Source, we got our fry on. Not only did we make these nutella-filled doughnuts, but we also beer battered some pickles and fried those (post soon!).
But, about the doughnuts, these are really a weekend dream. Make the dough the night before (thanks Megan!), roll it/cut it in the morning, and while you chat over coffee or do some errand running your doughnuts will rise, after that you can just fry them up, dust the still warm doughnuts with sugar, and fill with nutella. We did have more than one mishap trying to fill the doughnuts–so, I would suggest using a good quality piping bag fitted with a tip that can pierce the outside of the donut. These are best eaten fresh and warm–the outside is crunchy and sugary, while the insides are soft, tender, and buttery.
