My doughnut tastes

Donut MachineThere are many instances where the love of a doughnut carries through to a must have situation.

For me every time i visit my home land, i feel compelled to visit the seaside port of Portsmouth and Southsea. The Royal Navy museum in Portsmouth is a great place to see the old timbers of Nelson’s Flagship and the many mothballed more modern day flat-tops and other navy war machines as well as a paddle steamer and a battle ship from the 1500’s that sunk without firing a shot in anger with all hands.

I guess you are now asking yourself just where does the navy and war machines come into  a bakery site and what could it have to do with doughnuts.

Well, as much as the navy and boaters use something called a doughnut to save their craft from bumping together, the doughnut i would be referring too is the edible kind.

The graphic image above is a small table top cake doughnut machine. These are the sort of machines you can find in places like Southsea and other seaside resorts in the UK. You buy then by the bag anywhere from 8 to more than a dozen at a time. They are usually hot straight from the machine and lightly dusted with cinnamon sugar. I can taste them now.

If you would like to learn how to make these or other styles of doughnut. GO HERE.
