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 all the way! I just purchased a muffin pan to bake donuts. How nice to be able to have this cookbook to go with it.

Yeast, with chocolate glaze.

yeast type, definitely. there's just something about that melt-in-your-mouth texture when they're just made and hot and freshly glazed. yum!

Hard to decide. Some times yeast, sometime cake. OK will be YEAST, but just one :-)

I'm not picky, but if I have to choose it would be yeast!
October 12 | Unregistered CommenterJeanne
YEAST!!! It's ALL about the sugary glaze (almost any glaze flavor) and the light fluffy donut.... NOM!

Cake Doughnut! yes, perfect to soak up coffee. yum!
October 12 | Unregistered CommenterSheila
The texture lets you get a delicious 'mouthful' feeling and absorbs milk or coffee much better than yeast.
Chocolate...Butternut....Blueberry.... Oyeee.

I am pretty sure I need both cake and yeast doughnuts in my life. Sometimes life calls for an Old Fashioned, and sometimes I have to have a maple bar. There you have it.
October 12 | Unregistered CommenterNoreen
Tough call...I love all doughnuts but sugar coated cake are definitely my #1...so Team Cake!
