Brioche Donuts

Two nights ago I made donuts for my boyfriend's birthday.  I got the idea from Artisan Bread in Five's blog, since that's the only type of bread I'm familiar with.  I made the brioche dough earlier that day and we fried them together later that night.  It was so much fun! I've never deep fried anything before (my mom is a nutritionist), but it was so exciting to see the dough puff up. The first few donuts looked kinda lopsided (see second photo), but towards the end they looked like real donuts you get at a shop!
