I don’t understand the whole baked doughnut craze. They’re healthier, I guess. They take forty-five minutes to make as opposed to three hours. But to me, the word “doughnut” connotes something golden and fluffy and fried. Something that feels weighty and substantial when you pick it up, and delightfully indulgent when you take a bite.
