Used the donut recipe from Alex Goh's book but i don't like the 'oil' taste to it. No one is really bothered by it except me! hahahaha... I suppose everything is deep fried has an oily taste to it but since i have ultra-sensitive tastebuds and olfactory system/receptors (whatever!), i can taste & smell the oil very distinctly. I wonder if it is because of the shortening in the recipe...perhaps i should have replaced shortening with margarine instead? These donuts taste like those mini donuts that they sell during promotion in Meiyi-Da Japanese supermart..and i don't really like those either because of the deep fried oil smell. That's also the reason why i hate fried man-tou, you-tiao, butterfly fritters..etc...but with the exception of potato wedges..:P
However, the ones i made the day before with bread dough, didn't have as much oil smell as this batch. *shrugs*..

About Me: Faithy
Hi, I'm Faithy. Faithy is my alter-ego. I was told back then when internet first started that it was dangerous to put your real name on the web...LOL.. (seriously not kidding!). So it was how this name Faithy came about and has stuck with me ever since. And as a matter of fact, I like it better than my real name..esp when I share the exact same name as my sister.. :D
Anyway, I started my blog initially on vox as a way to remind myself what i have baked and hopefully to see some progress along the way too..:)
