It's always good to read about things you like, isn't it? 'Recipe English' is especially good, for it talks about what we like, and it's the language that basically tells us what to do. I guess it's a great means to learn prepositions, such as 'on', 'in', 'over', 'under', etc. from, for it makes it easy to visualize procedures described in recipes.

Hi, J. Thanks for a comment.

"Recipe English" is fun as well as helpful to visualize unfamiliar vocabulary as you mentioned.
I agree that prepositions can be a good target to learn through those recipes.
Next, I might want to launch "Hard Rock English" for unnecessary-to-learn words. I know you'll make a far better writer than me though ;-)

Devil's Food Doughnuts

I've been literally obsessed with Devil's Doughnuts of Tsukiji Kimuraya for a couple of days. I just couldn't ignore them when passing a tentative stall selling these kinds of pastries at a station. I'm so horrified at a mere thought of my calorie intake over the weekend...

I googled "Devil's Doughnuts" to write a blog post, but it turns out that it's "Devils' Food Doughnuts" , not "Devil's Doughnuts". I found a recipe at Los Angeles Times Website.
http://articles.latimes.com/2010/jun/03/food/la-fo-doughnutsrecc-20100603
It's fun to read those recipes even though I'm not a baking type but a cooking type (in my defense ^^).

Recipe: Devil's food doughnuts June 03, 2010
Total time: About 1 hour Servings: Makes about 1 1/2 dozen doughnuts

4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, 3 tablespoons butter, 3 cups (12.75 ounces) flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa, 2 eggs, 2 egg yolks, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla, 1/2 cup strong coffee (cooled), Canola oil for frying

1. In a glass bowl or measuring cup, combine the bittersweet chocolate and butter.
Microwave, stirring every 30 seconds or so, until the chocolate and butter have melted and are combined. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cocoa. Set aside.

3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, or in a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat together the eggs, egg yolks and sugar
until lightened in color, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in the sour cream, vanilla and melted chocolate.

4. Gently beat half of the flour mixture, a spoonful at a time, into the egg mixture, then beat in the coffee.
Continue to beat in the rest of the flour mixture, a spoonful at a time,
until all of the ingredients are combined and a sticky dough is formed.

5. On a well-floured surface, roll the dough into a round just over one-half inch in thickness.
Using a doughnut cutter, or 2 biscuit cutters
(a larger one measuring 3 to 3 1/2 inches in diameter, and a smaller one measuring about 1 inch in diameter), cut the dough into doughnuts, spacing the doughnuts as close as possible.
Collect the scraps and roll out to form another batch of doughnuts (note that this batch may be a little tougher than the first as the dough has been worked).

6. Fill a deep fryer with oil, or fill a large pot to a depth of at least 3 inches,
and heat to a temperature of 350 degrees.

7. Gently place the doughnuts in the fryer, being careful not to crowd.
Fry the doughnuts on each side until puffed and golden, about 4 minutes, flipping every 30 seconds or so.

8. Drain the doughnuts on a rack and cool slightly, then frost and decorate as desired.

Each doughnut: 300 calories; 4 grams protein; 26 grams carbohydrates; 2 grams fiber; 21 grams fat; 5 grams saturated fat; 55 mg. cholesterol; 8 grams sugar; 168 mg. sodium.
