We bought the Krispy Kreme doughnuts in the beginning of the video at Penn Station. Normally, we'd advise you to never ingest anything that has at any point entered or left Penn Station (for your health and safety), but we always make an exception for Krispy Kreme. And this is solely because there is only one Krispy Kreme location in New York City. Join Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make a gourmet version of Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

don't know if this helps but krispy kreme runs their doughnuts threw a conveyor. so its length of time cooking is a set time and temperature... the oil is i think sunflower seed oil ... hope this helps

"you deserve it" - so that was cursing or thankfully encouragement? ~40mins episode Me: I guess what it was also what it became.

Did anyone else’s local Krispy Kreme’s have a window in the store where you can watch the regular glazed ones being made? It’s weird to me that Claire had to find it online 🤣

Nutmeg. Other people have made a soft sticky dough, knead with oil on the counter and on hands, then let it rise, roll it out put on parchment paper. You cut around the paper easy to lift that way and they won't fall. drop them into the hot oil better. Let it rise a second time 30 min. First time about an hour. Eggs and the regular stuff. There are a couple of people in here on you tube that have done it this way I mention. I got to go out and get nutmeg. Your dough is too firm. It has to remain sticky, the reason for the oil. That will make it lighter.

idk but i read somewhere that the reason donuts have holes was bcs the first person who discovered it made this round pastry thing for their kid, but the center was undercooked, hence it was cut so the bread has a hole ever since and it's now called donuts. dang i forgot where i got this information tho....

Our Hint: It's a specialty "blend" of flour (exclusively made for KK), the process for "proofing" is steam and heat at the exact same time (special proofer designed exclusively for KK), the oil is sort of like grapeseed oil. The doughnuts DO NOT cool...they are immediately glazed under the icing curtain. That's all we can say because we do not want to get fired! ;-D
