I attending a Breakfast Breads baking class. The quickest and easiest of the recipes was the doughnut.  Below is the recipe. I’ve included the tips and notes I made into the recipe itself.
Doughnut
Ingredients
Flour                                                                                      100g
Sugar                                                                                     14g
Improver (optional)                                                                 1g
Yeast                                                                                      3.5g
Salt                                                                                         1.5g
Egg                                                                                         42g
Butter                                                                                      14g
Water                                                                                      11g
Method
Mix all ingredients, (Salt last. This is because the salt activates the yeast and you don’t want that to happen before you’ve blended the ingredients. This is a good tip for any bread dough involving yeast and salt.), into smooth elastic dough. (Window pane consistency. This is when you take a small amount of dough, roll it into a ball, then begin to stretch it into a square/rectangle shape. The dough will stretch until nearly transparent. Like a window pane. To make a very good dough, knead the ingredients except salt until it is to nearly this stage, then add the salt and knead to this stage.)
Portion out the dough, roll into smooth balls, then flatten.
Leave to rise (double in size).
Cut out the center hole.
Allow to rise again.
Fry in hot oil. A good doughnut will have a ring of white about its middle. The doughnut will be light and fluffy.
For Ganache
Equal parts by weight of cream and dark chocolate.
Boil the cream, then pour on the chocolate.
Add about a tablespoon of butter (for 500 g of chocolate. This is just to give a nice glossy finish.). Whisk until smooth.
Dip the doughnut in the Ganache so that the top is coated.
Shake off excess, then place on parchment so that chocolate sets.
If using Ganache to fill cake, make the night before and allow to set at room temperature.

Bob Ross soothes and calms and makes me happy like nothing else I’ve ever known.

Fun fact: Bob Ross was a Marine drill sergeant for several years, but quit because he didn’t like yelling at people.

This is true. I saw a documentary about it. Men’s orgasm faces are allowed in teenage comedies rated PG13, but women’s orgasm faces can often push it into NC-17 territory, no joke.

This is pretty much the equation:

women receiving abuse = PG-13/R

women receiving pleasure = R/NC-17

Ugh. I did a speech on this shit, and watched the documentary about it. Pisses me the fuck off.

So absolutely ridiculous. Yes, please, show us being raped, murdered, mutilated; but don’t you dare show us engaging in sexual gratification. Because that would be…obscene.
