Yeast Rings

Yeast Rings

(OP)
I was in the grocery store over the weekend and I came across a product labeled "Yeast Rings". Most people, I suspect, know this product by another name. Any guesses to the more common name?

CC,

Be very careful about taking photos of yeast rings because in at least one community, such photos have been confused with Yeast Ring Child Pornography. <grin>

I prefer the geometry of a bagle over a bun, when I cut it. I dislike the concept in the next moment, when I butter it.
No bun intended.

I can't help but wonder what marketing person thought that a "yeast ring" would sound more appealing, or sell better, than a doughnut/donut (whichever spelling you prefer)?

And would the donut holes be "leaven lumps?"

Re:doughnut/donut (whichever spelling you prefer)?

Is Bagle an accepted spelling? I would typically use Bagel, but Bagle remains unchallenged at least 3 times above.

The reason that it went unchallenged is because that is an accepted spelling for a beagle-flavored bagel. <grin>

RE: Yeast Rings

A little late, but I thought I would comment on my lack of spelling accurately.

I let everyone know I do not spell accurately. In fact when someone ask me how to spell a word, I say I spell it incorrectly.pilgrim

RE: Yeast Rings

Well a French (and Cajun) Doughnut is called a Beignets so I'll go with that.

I need to make some soon, I love them!

Now it all makes sense to me...My great-grandfather, who served in The Great War (WWI) used to always say, never go into battle without a fixed Beignet at the end of your rifle. I guess that Beignets were meant to make friends with your enemies, right?

nice play on words Santa

RE: Yeast Rings

Beignets are more like fritters than doughnuts. Still good, though, when sprinkled with confectioner's sugar and served with coffee and chicory.

CC, funny story. But only because I wasn't the photographer. :)

RE: Yeast Rings

@flapeyre
where I live, in France, a beignet is anything made of batter essentially. so a doughnut, fritter, battered prawns (the chinese dish) etc are all classed as beignet. a yorkshire pudding, as with toad in the hole etc, likewise all 'beignet'.

having said that, fish and chips would (probably) not be called beignet au poisson. But i can't be certain as i've never seen nor heard of it being served in the South West. It's more likely to be called poisson en pate/croute, even though the batter is not a pastry crust.

RE: Yeast Rings

(OP)
With respect to this thread, and at least in this part of the USA, beignets would not be considered rings. Not all donuts are rings.

RE: Yeast Rings

This has to be similar to what you found in the store, CC. Very light and fluffy until coated with glaze. And very different from a cake donut.

Have we opened discussion up to crullers? Seems to be similar, although I remember some as being rolled pastry and coated with crystal sugar.

these are made of the leftovers (or holes) of the donuts, rather than working them back into batter and making more "real donuts" out of them they sell them like this.
And they are just as tasty, way cheaper of course and you can eat 4 different types if you can't decide and don't have to feel as guilty as you would if you would eat 4 donuts for variety sakes smile

RE: Yeast Rings

The name: ‘donut holes’ always confused me. How can you sell a hole? ponder The hole is the absence of anything that used to be around it. The best representation of a hole, in my opinion, was in one of The Beatles’ animated music movie.

Have fun.

RE: Yeast Rings

The first job I ever had was working at a Winchells Donut Shop MANY years ago. Started out a counter person and ended up a baker, so I can bring a little expertise to this dicussion. I can confirm that donut holes, at least in our shop, were the part taken out of the center of a raised/glazed donut. When you're cutting them out, you roll out the dough and then use a cutter that is two concentric circles. This makes the donut, and the "hole", in one cut.

The cake type donuts start with a batter that is dropped into the hot oil, so there is no part of the process that leaves you with a small round artifact that can be turned into a "hole".

So this means that only the yeast raised dough donuts can produce real donut holes. If you are looking at a cake based donut hole, it is manufactured from the start as a ball and cannot rightfully be called a donut "hole". The little cake balls are outright frauds if they go by the name "donut hole".

So that picture above, from my expert eye, is actually a mixture of donut holes and cake balls. Many people don't mind putting balls in their mouth, but I for one prefer a "hole"!
