Sweet Potato Donuts
I snuck off to NYC at the beginning of November for the majority of the month. Finished the trip off with a good ol’ fashion Brooklyn Drunksgiving, where I made my 2 favorite dishes, and tried out a new turkey technique, to be known asDrunken British Bucket Turkey. It was the best turkey I’ve ever eaten, other than the fact it was slightly overdone, since we basted the pop-up timer shut.
This time with the donuts, I tried the original recipe, compared to last time with a different icing.
How do ya’ll like the new layout?
Sweet Potato Doughnuts with Burnt Caramel Sauce
Three years ago, for Thanksgiving, we bought some sweet potatoes that weren’t yellow on the inside. While I was happy to let this slide, my good (British) friend insisted on finding “real American sweet potatoes” and went out on the hunt. She was successful, and I was determined not to let the rest go to waste. I found this recipe from Paula Dean, and have made these doughnuts every year since. Maple syrup is like liquid gold in Australia, so I went for a more cost effective glaze and tried out the burnt caramel sauce recipe here, minus the salt. I actually liked this better than the maple glaze, but go nuts and try both!
