In honour of National Donut Day, we wanted to share our take on one particular of our favourites, Nenshi’s Salted Caramel Donut from the infamous Jelly Contemporary Doughnuts. Doughy perfection topped with gooey caramel ganache, a maple butter drizzle and crunchy sea salt to balance out the sweetness… a issue of pure beauty. Our version is double infused, after in the caramel and once more in the maple butter drizzle. The donut itself is not infused, which suggests you can whip up a batch and customize based on your audience.
Writing this recipe proved to be particularly tricky mainly because writing about donuts really should be synonymous with consuming donuts…but this is for your advantage, not mine.
Now, forewarning, there is several actions and processes for the finish payout, but I guarantee you, it is entirely worth it. It is correct what they say, patience is a virtue.
For the donut you will require:
