I made mango and vanilla doughnuts. If you read the title, that should have been plenty obvious. If you’re just skimming, I also provided a decently large photo of a mango doughnut, for convenience, under this paragraph. Okay, ready to move on from this awful introduction? I rolled warm, pillowy balls of fried dough in homemade vanilla sugar and stuffed them full of luscious mango curd. Yum.
For a while I couldn’t understand why people put salt on sweets. I was confident that dessert was meant to be sweet, and salt would just ruin the luxurious, tooth-decaying experience.
I was wrong. Salt is able to offset the sweetness of desserts while also giving them a kick. Salt can really turn up the flavour. In fact, salt can actually help make your teeth decay faster! Salt really does make sweet desserts better. Especially desserts made almost completely our of sugar, like caramel.
