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.

    This has got to be one of the dumbest waste of time ideas ever. Every time one of BA’s videos pops up in my feed, the more I miss the original Bon Appetite. You’re 10x snobbier than the original, you don’t come up wit original ideas, so many of your projects are just trying to make something “better than the original”. Why don’t you try creating new recipes? Having original ideas? It says so much about current society: no originality, no true creativity.

    Her donut's do not look good like a dunkin or krispy kreme, they look too thick not light and airy.

    Just saw this. Loved it! If you want the glazed sheen like Crispy Creme then, take the hot donuts right out of the fryer, dip them in the glaze and set on a cooling rack until dry. The hot donut will "melt" and dry the glaze on the donut skin. It improves the adhesiveness and thins the glaze out just enough to form that shiny sheen.

    Back when bon' appetit was good and not a bunch of woke idiots. It's funny how everyone got along and had a fun group then money came up and a little fame mixed with "white guilt" over doing something people wanted to watch and boom... no more fun, no more videos and half the staff is gone. I say this a lot. The left eats itself. Here's some punny proof.

    Why did you have to be an evil corporation, Bon Appetit? I mean, you could have been a corporation that treated everyone fair. But, nooooo... you had to be EVIL and ruin this amazing thing all of us had going on with Claire.

    Why on earth would you consider using non-refined cocount oil for this? You knew it would color the flavor in a way that wasn't exactly a gourmet version of the original. Honestly a terrible decision. Good video nonetheless.
