Ok, susie, you made me post it: http://www.instructables.com/id/4-minute-Chocolate-Mousse/

Instructables are a bit of a pain b/c it hard to figure out what the steps are, just look at the top.

It does take longer than 4 ms, but you can probably tell from the ingredient list how good it will be. This is probably my *go-to* recipe when I want to impress people w/my dessert skills at dinner parties, I do always end up giving them the recipe and telling them how easy it is, though.

Right here, silly!
How did you know that I've been researching homemade deep-fried donuts (the filled kind) for the past few weeks, and also doing some reading on using a wok to deep-fry like Gordon does in the video? Seriously- I really have! Uncanny! I haven't made any yet, though, but seeing him do it in the video you just posted is giving me courage. I've never made deep-fried donuts before, but I've made a few batches of some pretty decent baked ones- not filled- but just plain and chocolate. Thanks for sharing!

Lovely doughnuts, too much trouble for me with the proving and waiting, proving and waiting.

All I could think of when I watched this was "Mmm, yummy, can he just make them FOR me though?" :p

I make donuts the cheater way using canned biscuits. Let me find a video (I do make my own icing from confectioners sugar though!)

Ok, found one. This is pretty much what I do!

For the lazy woman, Krispy Kreme original glazed are a life saver. Obviously best to buy when the "hot donuts now" sign is on, but they are still pretty good for a couple of days w/exactly 8 secs in the mv. Not that I have made it a subject of study, or anything, though :)

You know that YMMV means "your mileage may vary" it should also be "your microwave may vary" mine is perfect at 13 seconds. It's the lazy person test...

Get out of here with that Krispy Kreme crap, you tease. The closest one to me is an hour and a half away... :cry:

You know what the worst part is? I don't even live in that small of a town given the surrounding areas. It's a town of 100,000. When I first got here in July 2012, the only places to shop were the two Walmarts. It's getting better, but we don't even have national chain grocery stores like Kroger. We have the Walmart Marketplace and Country Mart. Oh, and the little bitty Aldi they recently put in. <sigh>

We had this marvelous Shipley Donut place where I grew up. It was right down the road. And my micro takes 10 seconds to perfectly re-heat.

J, I am an oldie, you have to tell me what EBIL means. Lizard, you might need to move to somewhere that gives you access to ultrapasteurized cream and KK original glazed. OK, JK in terms of the moving, but you seem like me, I can sense how frustrating it must be to not get the right, hard to find ingredients. I wish you lived next door so that we could share stuff.
