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 currently have some time, I had been searching on the web yesterday. In search of new, intriguing ideas, inspirational meals that I have never tasted before, to treat my family with. Searching for quite some time unfortunately could not come across lots of interesting stuff. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I discovered this delightful and easy treat simply by luck at Suncakemom. It looked so scrumptious on its pic, that called for fast action.
It had been not difficult to imagine how it is created, how it tastes and how much my hubby will probably want it. Actually, it is quite simple to delight the man in terms of treats. Yes, I am a blessed one. Or maybe he is.Anyhow, I visited the page and simply followed the detailed instuctions that were accompanied by superb images of the task. It really makes life less difficult. I can imagine that it’s a slight inconvenience to shoot pics in the midst of baking in the kitchen as you may ordinarily have gross hands so that i pretty appreciate the hard work she placed in for making this post and recipe easily followed.
With that in mind I am inspired presenting my own formulas similarly. Thanks for the idea.
I had been tweaking the initial formula create it for the taste of my family. I must mention that it was a great outcome. They prized the flavour, the overall look and loved having a sweet such as this in the middle of a busy week. They basically asked for lots more, more and more. Thus next time I am not going to commit the same mistake. I am gonna double the volume to make them happy.
This was made possible through SunCakeMom who provided the original Healthy donuts.
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.
