la tentative Krispy Kreme

My girlfriend Claire (well, she has a boyfriend, alas) tries to make gourmet-level Krispy Kreme doughnuts. This is another video that might be of interest to my buddy Charles, who bakes as a hobby/passion. The video below isn't about baking so much as it's about frying, but it's all about bread* and proofing and other things of interest to all those who deal with dough.

*Yes, I said bread. Unless a doughnut is a cake doughnut, it's bread. Period. You say that bread, by definition, is baked? Think again. Maybe you disagree; you're not alone. But that's my stance, and I'm sticking with it.

That video is way too long for just a quick watch. I will have to put it on my Watch Later list and get to it... later? I do want to take a look at it, though, even if I will never make doughnuts myself.

(I agree with you on the bread issue, by the way. Perhaps more on that later.)

I watched it at 1.5X speed.

re: doughnut = bread or what

Good to get agreement from an expert.
