The Dutch oven assignment at first seemed to be a simple task,as it turns out it was not. The measurements to make the dough were off slightly making the doughnuts more like pancakes, thus, beaver tails were created! This was a lot of fun to make although the ingredients were a little difficult to find we ended up getting them all and a few touch ups to the amount of ingredients needed and we were good to go! The vegetable oil in which the dough had to cook in was not boiling, which in he pictures, showed the oil boiling. Once the dough was put in though, the vegetable oil instantly started baking the doughnut. after a couple minutes it turned a golden brown and actually tasted somewhat like a doughnut which was quite surprising because it did not look like it would work. The next batch had icing sugar or cinnamon on them which made them even better. All in all it was quite the experience and it turned out much better than I expected.
