Mandatory Items: we should use any of the recipes provided.
Variations allowed: we could use our creativity to take these recipes and tweak them to come up with new, delicious varieties of doughnuts. We could use any type of toppings and fillings, we could make any shape we’d like, and we could make any size we like. We could add ingredients to the batters to make flavored doughnuts. The possibilities were endless.
Ok, so there were at least four different recipes for the dough. I've chosen the first one. Just because, at the forum, everybody was commenting it was the best one. Especially if you choose to bake the doughnuts instead of frying them. And definitely I would bake mine.
Oh, don't forget to check the other recipes at The Daring Kitchen website.
1 1/2 teaspoon table salt
150g smoked salmon
200g cream cheese
Cut the salmon in small dices. Mix the cheese, the scallion and some drops of freshly squeezed lime juice. Add the salmon. Fill the doughnut and serve immediately.

This video is adorable – it’s a girl who has never made doughnuts before. What’s great too is that she uses what she has and didn’t buy any extra equipment/gadgets. Oh and it’s funny.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uw3iR3jA8Vc
