Donuts are so common nowadays that we don’t even think that it could be done in the warmth of our homes. This is a huge mistake to make though.
As I recently have a little time, I was searching on the internet the other day. Trying to find fresh, stirring ideas, inspiring meals that I have never used before, to surprise my family with. Hunting for a while but could not come across too many interesting things. Just before I thought to give up on it, I stumbled on this fabulous and simple dessert by chance. It seemed so tempting
on its image, that called for immediate actions.
It was simple enough to imagine how it is made, how it tastes and how much boyfriend is going to want it. Actually, it is very easy to keep happy him in terms of treats. Anyway, I went to the page: Suncakemom and followed the step by step instuctions that had been coupled with nice graphics of the task. It really makes life much easier. I can imagine that it’s a bit of a hassle to take pics down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you usually have sticky hands thus i highly appreciate the time and effort she devote to build this blogpost and recipe conveniently followed.
With that said I’m empowered presenting my very own dishes in a similar fashion. Thanks for the thought.
I had been fine tuning the main mixture to make it for the taste of my family. I can say it absolutely was an awesome success. They prized the taste, the consistency and enjoyed having a delicacy like this in the midst of a stressful workweek. They ultimately requested even more, many more. So the next occasion I am not going to commit the same miscalculation. I’m going to twin the amount to get them happy.
Healthy donuts recipe credit suncakemom.
Add yeast to half of the lukewarm milk or water and stir it well. Allow it to sit for five minutes. If it starts to bubble don’t worry it’s only the yeast working and it’s completely normal.
Separate egg whites from yolks.
Beat egg whites until hard peaks form.
Put flour, egg yolks, butter and the rest of the milk into a big bowl. Pour in the milk and yeast mixture too. Knead until the dough comes together. We are after a fairly soft dough so don’t worry if it sticks to the wall of the bowl here and there.
Add the egg whites into the dough too then place the dough in a lightly floured bowl, cover and leave it in a warm place for half an hour to rise.
Turn out the dough on to a floured surface
Roll it out to about 1 finger thick.
Use a donuts cutter or a cup to cut out our special homemade doughnuts.
Transfer them to a lightly-floured, flat surface that is in a draft-free, warm spot. Cover the donuts lightly with tea towels and leave them rise for another half an hour.
Fill frying pan with oil and heat until sizzles. Be patient and don’t try to put doughnut into the oil before it’s not hot enough. Also if the oil is too hot the dough won’t rise as much as it could and we end up with much denser results. We have to test the kitchen for this but if we have six temperature settings on the cooker then starting on the third is a great start. Try the oil by dropping a little leftover dough in there. If it sizzles and rises immediately to the surface, the oil is ready.
Carefully place donuts upside down into the frying pan. Use a spatula to pick up the dough to avoid any sticking to the kitchen counter.
Put the lid on top! They should float to the top and puff up.
After about a minute check the bottom for golden brown color. If it’s done flip them over to the other side and don’t put the lid back.
Remove them from the oil as soon as they’re golden brown on both sides.
Place donuts on paper kitchen-towels to cool and drain. If we can see the whitish stripe in the middle then we have a nice and fluffy donuts. No stripes no fluffiness.
