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!

Oh boy . . . buttermilk bars and chocolate old fashioned donuts. I guess I vote for cake!

BOTH!Is it a Donut or Doughnut? Any how, when I'm craving something sweet and want instant satisfaction, go for cake doughnuts. When I want something comforting and when I'm feeling nostalgic. yeast doughnuts for me.

In case I get to win, I have lots of relatives in the US who could send me the book when they come and visit me. Please don't cancel me out. I really really want to have a chance to have a copy of that book.

Thanks in advance!

Oooohhhh...I love them both. But if I had to choose, I'd probably go with a cake donut. So yummy! There's a bakery not too far away that makes a delicious cinnamon cake donut - irresistible!

Yeast :)

The answer depends on the situation. Yeast donuts are appropriate for breakfast, cake donuts are good for an afternoon snack.
