This simple infographic tells us the following about donuts:
1. You can make fluffier donuts by using yeast as the leavening agent.
2. Yeast are living single cell micro-organisms. When dry, they are dormant, but become active when water is added.
4. This is called fermentation. Carbon dioxide – CO2 – is produced and causes the dough to rise.
5. We can see the effect of the CO2 . Just look at the air pockets in the inside of the donuts, which make them softer and fluffier.
