Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Krispy Kreme Doughnuts | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 26 November 2019
  • We bought the Krispy Kreme doughnuts in the beginning of the video at Penn Station. Normally, we'd advise you to never ingest anything that has at any point entered or left Penn Station (for your health and safety), but we always make an exception for Krispy Kreme. And this is solely because there is only one Krispy Kreme location in New York City. Join Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make a gourmet version of Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

                      Is there a difference between Krispy Kreme in the US and the UK? Because the ones they have over here are just complete garbage.

                          Whenever they make anything they always buy HUGE quantities of the product....that seems so excessive

                              There’s nothing gourmet about vegetable oil. It tastes like garbage and ruins the flavor of everything... why not try coconut oil or beef tallow or something with flavor and more texture?

                                I bakeed donuts for 6 years... not bad for a one off try. But they do not look uniform. And you have glaze hot. Not cool.

                                    I don't believe that the piping of the shape and how they make that is forefficiency because the Krispy Kreme around my house they're always throwing Miss shaped ones out

                                            Here’s the thing about Krispy Kreme donuts though. They’re donuts that are made in store daily so they kind of already are gourmet.

                                                          The ball shaped ones you made are actually very similar to the Turkish dessert very popular here, called "Lokma" which basically is deep fried dough soaked in syrup and some are made with chocolate or vanilla filling, you should def check it out!! love these series btw
