If my soda bread with pesto & olives didn’t make it clear that these faux Russian doughnuts certainly did – dough is life. And when I say dough I definitely don’t mean English bread – don’t get me wrong I do love buttered toast almost as much as I love Cookie & Pippin but looking at the quality of this bread objectively from the point of an amateur bread maker it makes my eyes well up with disdain. It’s all fluff and air and you could essentially smash it up into the size of a tennis ball within seconds. When I saw dough I mean rich, creamy, chewy dough with crust that looks like a reflection of all Moon craters that there are. Like this super easy oregano & garlic bread which required no waiting time. I repeat – no waiting. It’s all done from start to finish within 1 hour.
