Sweet Giveaway: Win a Copy of Doughnuts by Lara Ferroni!

So, anyone who writes and photographs a doughnut recipe book--oh, Doughnuts: Simple and Delicious Recipes to Make at Home, from Sasquatch Books, for instance--is pretty much tops in my book.

But really, as awesome as you might figure such a person to be, author/photographer/doughnut maker Lara Ferroni is even better.

From the day I learned she was working on this project, I couldn't stop myself from constantly saying things like "Doughnut Stop Believing!" or "Just Donut!" whenever I saw her. And--bless her--she never got terse with me or punched me or anything.

And now the book's out! And it's full of amazing doughnut lore, factoids, recipes and mouthwatering photos. Which one to try first--a classic raised doughnut? Or perhaps something more exotic, like a Margarita, Red Velvet, or S'mores Doughnut? Here, preview it all in the promo video:

Well, one lucky reader can choose their own doughnut adventure, because I've got a copy to give away!

How do you put yourself in the running? Simply weigh in on this holey issue in the comments section below:

Doughnuts: Yeast or Cake?

US and Canadian entrants only, please. This giveaway will close one week from today, on Tuesday, October 19th at 12pm PST!

Cake! I used to prefer yeast donuts, but then I had the best cake donuts ever in North Carolina and I'll never go back! Well... if I'm desperate I will ^_^

Gosh, that's tough! I think I'd have to go with cake, although Voodoo's maple bacon was pretty amazing.

Cake! You can trust that most cake doughnuts will have similar consistency, but yeast doughnuts are all over the board.

Yeast definitely!

It has to be yeast. You can create an endless array using a basic yeast doughnut and changing up the fillings

For me, it's cake. For my niece who is following my baking example, she chooses doughnuts for everything! Doughnuts over birthday cake even.
