      Great channel bro

    25. Spooky Trumpet

      Babish: were gonna make a jelly and cream filled donut, and the lesser known sour cream donut *Me: Sour Huh?*

    26. Emily Nunns

      Babish: "the lesser known, sour cream donut" Me, hater of sour cream and lover of donuts: "shut the fuck up" Edit: okay after watching the whole video I'm relieved seeing the sour cream was mixed into the dough rather than the horror I envisioned of a sour cream filled donut

    27. TheEvilTwin

      That aint a Donut bruv, thats a Berliner. German Cake, commonly eaten in the carneval season :D

    28. Patricia A. Walker

      Why do you mix up your measuring units? Is it grams or cups? and how do you convert? Them to really mix us up, you go to teaspoons and tablespoons. Have a heart for the home cook! Many of us don't use the scale method.

    29. selma kerroumi

      Your videos helps me with anxiety. Watching the art of cooking is very relaxing

    30. Katie Taylor

      When I was a kid I read a book (one of the sequels to My Friend Flicka, if you're curious) where a woman is trying to make donuts, but when she puts them in the oil they instantly disintegrate. So she uses the rest of the dough to make crispy biscuits everyone loves. Now I'm wondering where she went wrong.

    31. ジョーさん

      "A ball of smooth, supple dough" Never before has someone described me so well

      1. Sarah Allegra

        ジョーさん 😂😂😂

    32. Noah Thomas

    34. john Will

    35. Hashoshi

    36. Girls That Fall

      What oil did you use? Is canola okay? (For the deep frying)

    45. shadowmaster335

      every time i see donut videos im like "that shit ain't a donut, that's a damn biscuit", im like every time i hear the word donut i see a ring shaped fluffy dough with various different glazings ontop, not these cylindrical looking things, then again i wasn't the person to invent em so what do i know

    46. Nugget

      These don’t like the jelly filled donuts from Pokémon

    47. The Creeper King

      Naw let’s get down to the gym

    48. Caitlin Cox

      Do you ever just say fuck it and deep fry some grands biscuits to make donuts? Because I do and it works.

    49. ZIGGY

      Anyone else sitting here at 2:00am wondering what they gonna eat in the morning 😂😂😂

    50. Dolphinboi

      He did the best ones from Pokemon in a separate video, this is info for the new fans.

    51. Agnieszka Lewandowska

      In Poland we call such (without the hole) donuts "pączki". Love it

    52. London M

      is the sour cream doughnut in your recipe book? my mom craved sour cream doughnuts during all three of her pregnancies and while she still craves them every once in a while, she hasn't been able to find any in like 15 years. So, I'm going to don a hazmat suit and make her some (without my dairy allergy killing me in the process), but I haven't been able to find a good recipe for them :(

    53. Michael Johnson

      I’m as real as a donut

    54. EnderLegendGaming

    57. Michael Coleman

      Can I use instant, fast rising yeast?

    58. Kenneth Wade

      I had no idea that's what those donuts are called because for me it was just called donut and filled donut, I had no idea they were called sour cream donuts

    59. ILikeSpace ;-;

      Sour cream donuts are the best!!!!

    60. The Trolling BOB

      damn... i feel like a dog... i have my mouth full of saliva XD

    61. EricWoolardDrums

      Stay Babbish???

    62. plate noise

      once i ate a jelly donut that started to ferment, and it was fucking incredible

    63. _drxft

      Here in germany those things are called "Berliner". & Dounuts are those things without any filling but with a hole in the middle... Crazy

    64. Wolf Pup Films

      The real question is, is it donut or doughnut

    65. TrentMax Bell

      I love you so much Andrew. Your channel is amazing.

    66. Pierre Sihite

      That looks doughlicious


      This is weird, I feel like the announcer from commercials made a US-new channel

    68. Undecisive Angel

      Donuts! At the big. Donut!

    69. Carlos Germosen

      Do the donuts from Wayne’s World!

    70. Roseheart Toxic

      Could you substitute coconut oil for deep frying instead of using cooking oil?
