    twissis's Note:

    I have always felt that doughnuts were something you bought at a bakery because they were just too labor-intensive to do otherwise. This recipe for Tunisian YoYos may well have changed my mind & I will be interested to know if other chefs feel as I do. The recipe was a little vague about times, saying “60 min plus rest time of 1 hr”. So my division of times is a bit of guesswork based on recipe directions & does not include the 1 hr rest time. Enjoy!
