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!

Definitely yeast donuts. In fact, once I ate 12 Krispy Kreme glazed donuts in 21 minutes (and have the pictures to prove it!). And yes, I still love them. :)

I've never met a donut I didn't want to eat. So I say both.

This is really tough, but I think,ca..., no, yeast! I wish the book cover really had your adorable doughnut drawing on it!

I love cake but when it comes to doughnuts its yeast all the way.
October 12 | Unregistered CommenterTR
Yeast for me! :)
October 12 | Unregistered CommenterChristine N
Yeast, for sure. Cake comes in lots of different forms. But a good yeast donut...incomparable.
October 12 | Unregistered CommenterAmy
It's a toughy, but I am going to say yeast. However, I REALLY love them both!
October 12 | Unregistered CommenterMadame P
Yeast please! Actually, I don't care. I love them all.
October 12 | Unregistered CommenterNell
Yes, please! Yeast when it's a fresh hot glazed doughnut, custard or creme filled; cake when it's sour cream or pumpkin.

Chocolate cake donut with sprinkles!!!
October 12 | Unregistered CommenterCupcake Activist
Ooohhhh, tough question, but I'll have to go with Cake over Yeast - they are just so rich & wonderful :)
October 12 | Unregistered CommenterVictoria Klein
Yeast...with Chocolate...but if you're offering a donut, I'll take a dozen any way I can get them! :o) YUM!
October 12 | Unregistered CommenterDiana
Yeast... if I wanted a "cake" donut, I would just eat cake. Only yeast donuts have that chewy texture that gives me a tingle as it travels down to my belly!
October 12 | Unregistered CommenterCourtney
my favorite is a chocolate cake donut with choco icing and choco sprinkles - thats just heavenly!
October 12 | Unregistered Commentermelissa daams
Definitely, yeast!
