How to section
Welcome friend! Get your self ready to cook some goods. This recipe is also great as a gift for your beloved ones (make them as donuts), give them to your kids instead of store-bought cookies and much more. Wear your apron and follow my lead!
In this recipe, you may need different utensils, mentioning: paper towels, saucepan, rolling pin, parchment paper, circular cutter, wire cooling rack.
- First of all, take warm milk (use the microwave and warm it for 40 seconds) and pour it in a big bowl; add the yeast and combine well.
- Cool for 5 minutes.
- Add butter, eggs, salt and sugar and beat with a stand mixer. Add half the flour and combine everything together, add the flour left and mix.
- Take a mixing bowl, use your hands and make an oil layer before putting the mixture in it.
- Cover and let cool for 30 minutes.
- Cut as many pieces as you like using a circular cookie cutter.
- Fry your donuts (50 seconds each side) and prepare the glaze at the same time.
- Cool your kremes and choose a way to glaze them (pour the glaze from the top or dip the donuts onto the glaze).
HOW TO MAKE IT :
- In a large measuring jug, combine the milk and boiling water then add a teaspoon of the sugar and the yeast.
- Stir it gently, then leave it in a warm place for the yeast to activate (aka foam).
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, the rest of the sugar, and the salt. Cut in the butter using your fingers or a pastry blender, until it resembles crumbs.
- Add the egg (give it a quick beat) and yeast mixture to the flour mix, and mix into a smooth dough. This usually takes about 5 minutes of mixing.
- Turn the dough out onto a lightly-floured counter and knead for about 5 to 10 minutes—it should feel springy and little bubbles should form under the surface. Place it back in the bowl.
- cover with a cloth or plastic wrap, and let rise for about an hour until double in size.
- Once risen, place the dough onto the counter and cut it into 4 pieces. One piece at a time, stretch it into a long rope about an inch to an inch and a half wide.
- Cut strips about an inch long, ball them up with your hands, and place them on a baking tray or wire rack to wait.
- Cover the doughnuts holes with a cloth to rise while you heat the oil to 375°F/190C
- Place the doughnuts into the oil and fry until golden brown on each side, about 2 minutes. Be sure to fry only a few at a time so they don’t overcrowd and stick together.
- Drain on a paper towel or wire rack over a cloth, before glazing them. Be sure to glaze them warm, or else they won’t get that delicious coverage!
- Serve at breakfast!
For the glaze:
- Melt the butter for a minute in a microwave, remove then add powdered sugar and vanilla extract.
- Thin out the paste with milk and combine until the mixture is thick.
