Thank you ☺ ..No Elliot won't eat it said he on special diet! of course,Mishu whacked the donut..Well,if you ask my opinion about the book,I will said it's good.The only downside is he don't show you (no pix or words)the step or method how to fold or make the bread..I think for a beginner it's quite hard to imagine how to make his bread..Hope this help..

Thank you dear☺

I like this recipe. It uses far less sugar than Western types like Krispy Creme.
