Farm Stand Buttermilk Doughnuts(3 ways)

It's not Sunday morning where I live , but at least I'm getting this post out before Sunday is over!
So- I finally got the book "Baked Explorations" by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito. I have their first book, "Baked: New Frontiers in Baking" which I absolutely love. When I heard about this group "Baked Sunday Mornings" that would be baking from the second book, I knew I had to join in.
These doughnuts are amazing! I was a bit concerned at first, since I am not a fan of frying things. But on the other hand, I am a major fan of doughnuts so I took the plunge! I was pleasantly surprised to find the recipe quite easy and the frying wasn't that bad at all. I thought the doughnuts might come out too greasy, but ..... man oh man are they delicious- not greasy at all and sooooo worth the time and effort ( which , as I said  wasn't that bad.). I rolled the doughnut holes in cinnamon sugar and dipped the doughnuts in a white or chocolate glaze, topped with the opposite color sprinkles. You can find the recipe on Baked Sunday Mornings, but believe me, the book is definitely worth adding to your shelf!
