Bread Ahead // Doughnut Workshop

The Bread Ahead Bakery Doughnut Workshop The Betty Stamp

Question: Any Londoners out there spent much time drooling over that doughnut stall at Borough Market? The one that sells those custard-stuffed doughnuts with pieces of honeycomb nestled into the top? The one that always has a queue about 20 people long?

Well turns out they do a doughnut workshop!

Uh huh! You heard correctly - DOUGHNUT WORKSHOP! And I'm afraid to say, if you haven't immediately typed 'doughnut workshop' into your search engine then I'm not sure we can be friends ;)

William really kindly bought his mum and I a gift voucher for one of the Bread Ahead workshops for Christmas and after having a browse through their extensive list, from Scandinavian to Best of British, we ended up picking their most popular course - DOUGHNUTS!

Having eyed up and drooled over these specific custard-stuffed doughnuts at Borough Market a million times before, it's safe to say, we both were very keen on this particular one.





That's my 'mmm, liquid sugar' face...

I'm not even ashamed to say, I was 'that' person who, as soon as the lovely lady asked for volunteers, my hand shot straight up. So here's me being an absolute keeno learning how to make HONEYCOMB for the topping for our doughnuts. 

Turns out, I didn't actually want to know just how much sugar goes into honeycomb... as it's now ruined my Crunchie-eating experience forever!

We had an absolute blast. It was just the right length of workshop; a half day from 10-1pm and we came away with sugar all around our lips, no appetite for lunch and a brain full of knowledge about doughnut dough :) Brilliant.

I'd highly recommend to anyone.

I have to say though, my favourite part was bashing the honeycomb to smithereens :)

My photos were a bit dodge so apologies for that, I only had my phone and to be honest, was too distracted licking my fingers and munching on honeycomb to get high quality shots! But I hope this gives you a good idea anyhow.

I ended up baking a mammoth Honeycomb Chocolate Cake with my goody bag of honeycomb from the workshop so check it out!

Enjoy your weekend whatever you're up to!
