Being a food blogger, I follow quite a few food trends. There are a lot that I just question and many that I get really excited for. Galaxy Donuts get me giddy. Not quite sure why, because I am not a spacey/Star Wars/science type of gal. There is just something about creating something edible that looks like the relatively unknown that gets me!
I surprised my kids with these donuts this weekend, and clearly brought out the sci-fi side of my 5 year old. He could not get enough of them! He literally sat there and stared at them for a good 5 minutes before eating them. Five minute in little kid time is like a good 20 minutes of staring into the unknown in adult time. Like me before coffee every morning.
These Galaxy Donuts are out of this world! With their swirled colorful glaze and dusting of edible glitter, they are fun for kids and adults alike.
For these donuts, I made a homemade yeast donuts. Now before you stop reading, I want you to know that yeast donuts are not hard to make. Like any bread recipe, the bulk of the prep time goes to the dough resting and rising. They dough really only takes a few minutes to put together, especially if you have a mixer or food processor with a dough attachment. Frying the dough is not really that time consuming either. It only took me about 15 minutes to fry up 2 dozen of these beauties!
To make the glaze, I simply made a large batch and colored them separately. Then added a dollop of white, pink, blue, and purple to the black glaze.
I then carefully swirled them together a bit with a knife and dipped the donuts in. After the glaze had set for a bit, I sprinkled them with the edible glitter dust. They are fun AND delicious. Nothing quite beats the taste of a warm fresh donut! So if you have a bit of extra time this week, I challenge you to make them! Enjoy!
