Well, I tried this recipe last night. I followed the instructions exactly. These weren't bad; but they definitely are not as light and fluffy as Krispy Kreme donuts. I bake a lot, and I am relatively good at it. I've tried to make donuts myself, without a recipe, and they came out tasting almost exactly like the ones I made with your recipe. They aren't bad, but they aren't great either.I'm wondering if they would be lighter and fluffier if I used vegetable oil instead of shortening, and instead of regular milk used half water and half evaporated milk. Glazed donuts are just harder to get the right texture. That's why I usually just make cake donuts; they're so much easier to perfect. :)
Oh, that sounds great! I've never even heard of whipped cream powder before. Can you get it at Walmart or another regular supermarket?
Wow, thank you for the tip! I was wondering about just that. I sometimes make potato rolls and they are really fluffy, so I thought about adding some left over mashed potatoes I had to the recipe. But, I figured I should try the recipe exactly as it was written before trying to adjust it. Next time I try to make these style donuts I'll add potatoes. Thanks again for the advice.
I think her recipe is just a little off. The donuts I made with her recipe are nothing like Krispy Kreme's donuts. They aren't bad, but the texture is tougher and bread-like. I bake a lot, and I have tried to make Krispy Kreme style donuts myself, without a recipe (just guesstimating on how much of each thing to put), and they weren't bad either, but not as soft and fluffy as Krispy Kreme donuts. Yet, they were closer than this recipe.Personally, I think mine were a little lighter and fluffier than this recipe because I used water instead of milk, and I used liquid vegetable oil instead of Crisco. I used a couple of cups less of flour too. My dough was really sticky at first, but it got much better after kneading it, even though I barely added any flour during the kneading process. But, I'm not going to lie and claim mine were just like Krispy Kreme's donuts. Mine were not as light and fluffy; that's why I tried this recipe. But, whiles this recipe isn't awful, it's not great. After making this recipe, I've seen many other Krispy Kreme knockoff recipes, and everyone claims their recipe is exactly like Krispy Kreme's. Most have good comments, but I saw quite a few recipes that claimed to be exact knockoffs of Krispy Kreme that had many people commenting on the tough texture of those donuts too. I guess it is just really hard to get the texture just right.
