- We have like 20 pounds of dough for this donut Whoa I don't think this table is big enough It's time to go big or go home - This is the biggest donut I've ever seen (victorious music) - Hi, my name's Alvin I am a taste producer and I love making big food So yesterday I got an Instagram message from a body builder with a handle nodonutshere and he says, And I've also been getting a lot of requests to make a giant donut So I feel like I know what I'm going to make today - [Michael] How are you? - [Alvin] Nice to see you - Likewise - [Alvin] For the people that don't know you, what do you do? - I am a cop, cop/fitness person I've been a cop for over 11 years now but I've used social media as a platform to encourage first responders to live out their lifestyles - [Alvin] What is the story behind your social media? - My handle is nodonutshere Kind of poking fun at the donut eating cop stereotype You want to command presence and look professional You know fitness plays a huge part in that - [Alvin] What is your relationship with food? - [Michael] It has a lot to do with whether you storing fat, building muscle Cheat day is mostly to keep you sane Drop your carbs down really low and you wanna have a donut to fill you out yeah make you feel good - [Alvin] Sounds like today is your cheat day Have you worked out today yet? - Not yet - How bout I go make the big donut, if wanna go work out you can have a very fun cheat meal for you - Sounds like I'll need that work out - [Alvin] Alright cool Thanks dude I'll see you in a bit - [Michael] Alright, whoa (brassy jazz music) - Let's make this big donut for a big man First thing we're gonna do, we're gonna have to make the donut dough It's a yeasted donut so we're gonna start by making the yeast mixture So milk, some warm water, some sugar, and the yeast Oh I just spilled a little bit That's okay This yeast is just gonna soak up all this nice sugar, all this nice milk Really grow into a big boy See you in a bit So this donut takes a lot of flour and my mixing bowl is only this big so I'm actually going to be making two entire batches of this dough 10 entire cups of flour Whoa! There's this white cloud Some salt, shortening, four eggs Hook this up to the dough mixer Delicious yeast mixture, oh god, I'm spilling everywhere Accidents happen, that's fine, stay clean So the funny thing is, even one of these batches makes about 20 - 30 donuts and I'm doubling it So there's going to be enough dough for like 40-60 donuts I think it's time to go big, or go home I really don't wanna go home Whoa, look at all that dough Let's get you out of here Put it into this big bowl This is the biggest bowl we have in the Tasty Kitchen Get out of there, common dude This is the most dough I've held in my entire life I would not be a good rapper Oo oo, okay gluten, coming through That's only one, we gotta make another batch (mixer whirring) I told my mom how I was gonna go and make that dough, I don't think she knew that this is what I meant We have like 20 pounds of dough in here for this donut Turn Whoa, that was fun These gluten strands are like super tight right now, we want them to relax We're going to go in and take a long nap for the big times Alright I will see you and I will see you in a bit Now let's make the glaze for the donut The glaze is pretty simple We just have some melted butter It's kind of a lot of butter but more butter more better Funny thing is the original glaze recipe makes enough for about 10 -15 donuts, we're making a really big one so I tripled the recipe I think the batch of pink glaze is going to be enough for 30- 45 normal donuts So the butter's melted, we're going to add in some milk Three cups of powdered sugar That cloud reminds me of something else Snow So there's a lot of lumps, got a nice whisk here Whip it through the glass, whoa Looking pretty nice, nice drippage going on here So at this point we're going to add the color Literally the ingredient is the color pink Hope this is pink, hold on Oh, okay it's pink, we're good One drop of the color pink Oh I added two Look at that Two drops did that I'd say that's pretty pink Oo Deliciousness right there Can't have a giant donut, with out giant sprinkles For reference, these are normal rainbow sprinkles This is the size of one sprinkle Do you guys know how sprinkles are made? Cause I sure didn't before this We're gonna take some powdered sugar, some corn syrup, some corn starch and some water I think that's literally it Sprinkles have colors I have like 10 bajillion things of food coloring here So we're going to divide this into 10 bajillion bowls, and then we're gonna color it One two three four five Came through dripping, drip drip Got red, yellow, green, blue, yo blue what's going on man Blue, I don't want too much I just need a little bit Alright, there's blue And purple Alright yellow, you better represent us well Oo dat's lookin' nice Boom Purple's done So I warmed them all up a little bit and I need to get each color individually into the piping bag, so a little trick Take a cup, put your piping bag with the tip in it like that, transfer the glaze, lets see if this works Oo, that's so cool You know that feeling when you know you're like cutting through paper in Kindergarten and you just glide right on with the scissors? That's what this feels like Next color, I'm going to pick up where I left off Tray number two Blue, I love that Last but not least purple Alright, I know you really can't see it, but this is the size of one sprinkle, this is quite the size difference I'll let these dry out and I'll see you in a bit Alright, let's see how big my dough has gotten Sweet baby Jesus Look at this one You went like straight through puberty, and hit menopause Get the flour, here we go, common Let's get out of there, whoa Damn look at that gluten Whoa Look at you, I'm gonna work it a little bit I'm gonna knock some of the air out of it and then we're going to get it back into a ball shape It's got some weigh to it Look at this Absolute unit right there (laughing) This gets tucked underneath LeBron James This guy's gonna relax for a bit and then we are going to shape him into an actual donut So one thing that I should have probably thought about was how big this donut is going to be So this is the biggest pan that we actually have I don't think this pan is going to cut it I have a friend who's a chef near by, I'm hoping that he has something bigger So let me message him and see what he says 30 inches is the entire width of this table So his wok is gonna be like this big So I gotta turn this ball of dough into a perfect donut ring ♪ Rock a bye baby ♪ Now this is kind of fun I've never really had to use my forearms to kneed before I'm gonna start in the middle and work you're way out word Whoa, okay How we lookin?
