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

    I came here after the pop rocks episode, thinking it would be nice to watch Claire be a little more chill and do something that's in her wheelhouse, rather than the stress and misery of pop rocks. Sonehow I wasn't expecting the sad piano music.

    honestly i like the way claire’s look way better. i love the “imperfections” so much more than the seemingly perfect krispy kreme’s

    Krispy Kreme: cease and desist

  • GudGud

    Finally, proof the gourmet doesn't mean "better". Krispy Kreme is the end all be all, don't talk to me.

    Probably already written by someone else but I think the reason that doughnuts have holes is because the person who invented them wanted to make cakes for the people who delivered the post (used to be by horse), but it was inconvenient for them to stop and eat - so she put holes in the middle of small cakes so that the riders could carry them around their finger. Someone fact check me here though I could be absolutely wrong.

    9:32 that is the look of fear. A $900 mixer rocking way more than it should. Love it. Wolf's are great. And they said it not being a tilt head would bring more power to the party. That's funny. Shoulda fired up a Hobart. LOL!!! But everyone's more concerned about Clarire's engagement ring.

    "Everyone, give it a poke." Reminds me of something I've heard before... Can't quite put my finger on it though. Haha

    the ingredients list sounds like it was for the boxed shelf stable version of the donut, not the fresh ones.

    Ok is no one going to mention how she dips the donut in water at 2:56 before taking a bite out of it???

  • spilecka

    Someone may have already said this, but the key to successful high fives, weirdly, is each participant looking at the other's elbow--you don't miss!

  • 504girl3rd

    2:54 did she dip the doughnut in water?

  • ItzTechz

    This is cool. But WHY would you want to make a perfect doughnut better?
