If you’ve ever wanted to make doughnuts from scratch before, you might’ve been discouraged simply because you didn’t have the right tools. And why buy a fancy, overpriced dough cutter that you’ll only use once in your life? Well, prepare to get excited. Because you can use an item that you probably already have lying in a kitchen drawer to shape your doughnuts.
On Mary’s Big Kitchen Party (Fridays at 9 p.m. ET during Dinner and a Movie; on demand on Fibe TV, Channel 1), the lovely Mary Berg explained that all you really need to cut out a doughnut hole is a piping tip. Just press the wide end of a regular piping tip into the centre of the doughnut, and remove the hole. Thank you, Mary Berg for all your kitchen wisdom.
Don’t have a professional-level, circle-cutting tool for the actual doughnuts? Fear not! You can just use a large cup to cut them out.
