Watch: Alton Brown Combines Biscuits and Doughnuts Into One Delicious Bonut

New, 1 comment

The Southerner's answer to the cronut

Before becoming Food Network's go-to reality host and a relentless touring performer, Alton Brown was a bona fide kitchen instructor on Good Eats (RIP). In this video, Brown is getting back to his roots, showing off the steps required to make "bonuts." What's a bonut? It's biscuit dough shaped and fried like a doughnut, of course.

Why not simply enjoy a regular old biscuit or doughnut? Why create this combination? Well, a bonut has "the lift of a biscuit, but all the golden-brown beauty of a doughnut," according to Brown. Truly the best of both worlds.

Watch the video above, and if you get a sudden craving for bonuts, scope the recipe on Brown's official website. Or, if you're more of a traditionalist, you can check out the culinary star's recipe for Southern-style buttermilk biscuits. Either way, your kitchen will be smelling wonderful in no time.
