“Nothing like a classic raised donut. I prefer sugar over glazed and chocolate. I swear when a donut is covered in sugar, its fluffiness and texture is so much better on the inside. …”

Raised doughnuts are made from yeast dough. Yeast-raised doughnuts contain about 25% oil by weight, whereas cake doughnuts' oil content is around 20%, but they have extra fat included in the batter before frying. Cake doughnuts are fried for about 90 seconds at approximately 190 °C to 198 °C, turning once. Yeast-raised doughnuts absorb more oil because they take longer to fry, about 150 seconds, at 182 °C to 190 °C. Cake doughnuts typically weigh between 24 g and 28 g, whereas yeast-raised doughnuts average 38 g and are generally larger when finished. After being fried, ring doughnuts are often topped with a glaze (icing) or a powder such as cinnamon or sugar.
