Possibly the best donut ever! Smoky mezcal meets sweet peaches and spicy jalapeño on a savory donut you won’t soon forget. We’ve created a donut hack that makes this an insanely fast and easy recipe. It requires no yeast, no rising or proofing and no baking skills.
The smokey sweet glaze and the spicy hot sauce are positively transformative on this so we use a ton of it. It’s messy in the absolute best way. Serve it on a plate with plenty of glaze and sauce and plus more on the side for dipping. Eat it with a fork and knife or just pull it apart and get your fingers messy. It’s beyond yummy.
Our Donut Hack
As much as I love sweets, I’m not a fan of sweets for breakfast. I’m just more of a savory girl. Enter the bisc-nut. This crazy hack on donuts makes them less sweet than traditional donuts. Traditional donuts require yeast and proofing. OMG really? I’m a cook, not a baker, and the thought of using yeast gives me hives. Plus I’m a bit ADD in the kitchen, I like the recipes that don’t require a lot of waiting for things. So I started using this genius hack years ago.
It Starts With The Biscuit
Biscuits are so easy even I can make them. Start with a good biscuit recipe like this one from Grist & Toll. Make the biscuit recipe as written but instead of putting them in the oven, put them in the fridge for 10 minutes to chill.
Vegetable oil (sunflower oil preferably)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon finely chopped jalapeño
1/3 cup chopped and smashed peaches with juice reserved (frozen or canned will work just fine)
This beloved Italian classic is a testament to the country's artful simplicity in the kitchen. As we delve into this cherished recipe, we'll honor the time-honored traditions of Italian cuisine by starting with dried cranberry beans, which infuse the dish with unparalleled depth of flavor and an exquisite, creamy texture.
In the Basque region of France they don't soak their signature Tolosa beans, they slowly braise them with just water, salt and olive oil. Time and heat to transform even the dense beans from dry to creamy masterpieces. This method works just as well for all heirloom beans! Read more about my bean braising experiments...
