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!

Yeast doughnuts alllll the way! They're like biting into little sugar clouds. Cake doughnuts are good, but I'd rather have a cupcake if I want that much density.

Yeast with chocolate glaze - Yum!

Why must life be full of difficult decisions? If I HAD to choose, I would pick yeasted donut with maple topping. I desperately need this book because we have no donut shops in our area. The horror!

Dare I say it? Cake! So heavy and delicious and DECADENT - just plain, old-fashioned cake donut, straight up without icing sugar or glaze to enjoy all that donut-ty goodness without any fancy acoutrements getting in the way.

Chocolate glazed with sprinkles!

I'd have to go with cake doughnuts, but I wouldn't say no to a yeast doughnut..or any doughnut for that matter. After reading this post, I might have to break my diet, and I just started officially three hours ago..

Ooooo that's a tough one...I love them both as long as they have sprinkles because sprinkles makes everything taste better. :D

How can someone decide when it comes to donuts?!!! They each offer something different. And now I am craving a donut!
