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 man, there is nothing like a fresh, yeast doughnut! It rivals the pancake tummy warmth!

Yeast! cake is delicious and dunk-worthy, but nothing compares to a light, fluffy, yeasted doughnut (preferably slathered with frosting and sprinkles).

I dont care as long as it is a DONUT :)

I love cake doughnuts, but I definitely want to try whatever kind that banana bread doughnut is in the trailer.

Well, it depends. Cake donuts are divine with hot coffee. But yeast donuts with a glaze are the perfect snack. Typically, I'm in a yeast donut mood.

Cake donuts, when done well, are the best. Bad cake donuts, are just dry and horrible.

Cake donut! (:

I'm not picky - anything I can get my hands on will do! I love the light airy-melty-fluffyness of a yeast donut, but I also love the exterior crunch of a perfectly fried cake donut! Mmmm....Donuts!!

I have to go with yeast donuts-preferably with some kind of strawberry frosting!
October 13 | Unregistered CommenterOlivia M.

I like the yeast donuts. I like that they're a little more chewy.

Yeast for sure!
