We can't help but go into a Homer Simpson-esque trance any time someone brings doughnuts into the office. We're pulled from out desks to the break room and stand in awe of that box of sugary, carby goodness. We used to be safe from that calorie-laden awesomeness once we left the office, but now we're in real trouble. Top Pot Doughnuts, our favorite Seattle doughnut shop has given us an unfathomable gift: a cookbook full of their doughnut recipes so we can make those rings of joy in our own home. Top Pot Hand-Forged Doughnuts: Secrets and Recipes for the Home Baker contains not only recipes and techniques for making your own doughnut delights, but also a bit of doughnut history and a handful of recipes to make with doughnuts. Let us blow your mind: bread pudding made with Old Fashioneds. You haven't lived 'til you've tried it.
